Fans ev­ery­where, but Ma­niesh doesn’t mind the at­ten­tion

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Lifestyle -

Tele­vi­sion host and ac­tor Ma­niesh Paul (above) was re­cently mobbed by fans at the Hong Kong airport and at his ho­tel. Ma­niesh — who is known for his wit and comic tim­ing — is host­ing and per­form­ing at Bol­ly­wood star Sal­man Khan’s Da-Bang world Tour, and is in Hong Kong for its first leg.

Ac­cord­ing to a source, as soon as Ma­niesh landed, his fans gath­ered around him for self­ies and au­to­graphs, and the ac­tor hap­pily obliged.

Does he ever get an­noyed by all this fan­fare? “Oh no! It’s over­whelm­ing that fans, even out of In­dia, recog­nise me and love me for my work. It makes me happy and mo­ti­vated to work more and keep en­ter­tain­ing the au­di­ences. There have been in­stances where even the air host­ess turned out to be a fan. I’m an ac­tor and, any­way, who doesn’t like at­ten­tion and un­con­di­tional love?” he asks.

As for the end­less re­quests for self­ies, Ma­niesh adds he’s cool with it all. “I’m an ac­tor and per­former. Why would I not like be­ing clicked with peo­ple who look up to me. A sin­gle pos­i­tive ges­ture might make the per­son happy,” says the ac­tor.
