Actor Manit Joura, who debuted with hit movie Band Baja Baraat, says changing into an actor was destined for him as occasion after occasion performing turned a desired profession choice for him.
“I joined my father’s business straight after my tenth boards, but business was never my cup of tea and I realised it pretty early. So, I decided to explore my creative side. That’s how I reached theatre. I still remember in my first appearance what I got was a one line dialogue in three-hour long play. But, that eventually got me to theatre in a big way,” says …Yeh Khamoshiyaan and 12/24 Karol Bagh actor.
Manit quickly landed into modelling after profitable a contest that was adopted by quite a few assignments.
Talking about his early days, he says, “In that phase, I really earned a lot of money. But I felt, there was a void! Once my theatre director had said it’s time for screen. So, I went ahead with a yearlong acting course to understand the craft better. In the process, I also learned to accept who I am and understand my capabilities too.”
Over the time Manit has carried out eight movies together with a German movie The Girl with the Indian Emerald . “I believe in never saying no to work be it for any platform or industry. Acting is what I want to do and a lot is left to be explored in terms of stories and characters. So, I prefer not to restrict myself as an actor as then only I will get to experiment with different roles.”
He is presently taking pictures for his ongoing present and is on talks for different tasks. “I am enjoying playing Rishabh Luthra in Kundali Bhagya after doing different types of characters in shows as well as in films like Solo, Love Shagun and Falsafa. I also delved into OTT projects Baarish and The Test Case to explore this contemporary platform.”
