Good looking hunk Manit Joura has no qualms in not being seen much in Zee TV’s popular show, Kundali Bhagya.
His track was missing even in the recent high drama around Preeta’s (Shraddha Arya) shaadi as well. “Balaji’s creative team, being past masters of TV fiction, know better. I don’t even ask them why I am not being used much.”
“I am very grateful to them for giving me a role that has lasted over 2 years. I have got name and fame, courtesy Rishabh Luthra.” Manit has also acted in ALTBalaji projects Test Case and Baarish. His other TV outings include 12/24 Karol Baug and Ram Milaayi Jodi.
“Recently I met a family at Delhi airport who were big fans of the show and even invited me for a family wedding. I am just overwhelmed by the love and affection of the online crowd.”
“Others might regard the off period as being sidelined. But I, being a positive person, prefer to use the time to work on myself and learn newer skills.”
“I also have a family farm back in Punjab that requests my attention, so went back. One of our mares has just become a mother.”
“As far as acting work is concerned, I am doing auditions. Unlike other actors, I have no qualms about testing for new roles as it gives me a chance to find out what other characters are there in the market. I don’t want to restrict my options.”
“I have also just auditioned for an international film. I had done The Girl With The Indian Emerald with the same German director, Michael Karen, back in 2013. And they again called me to try my luck, so fingers crossed.”
In closing, Manit Joura does not feel that his contract will stop him from doing outside work. “I really don’t pay much attention to the written word, coz I am sure that mutual understanding can solve most issues.”
Manit has been trying his luck in Indian films (Hindi and south) as well, but so far has not struck gold.
Best of luck, Manit Joura!!
