He has the gift of the gab and makes full use of it! Popular TV anchor Manish Paul, will host the reality talent show, India’s Got Talent 4, says, “Making sense out of nonsense is my strength, and it does take a lot of effort to do it. I love talking, I can make fun of anybody without intending to hurt anyone. I truly think this is my strength.”

Paul feels his job as the host of reality shows, live events and award functions is challenging.

“People think it is very easy to go on stage and just talk. But it’s not like we can just go and stick to a script. It is important to innovate and improvise. We have some brilliant writers in all shows, but one has to be careful not to
offend anyone,” he says, adding: “If Mr. Amitabh Bachchan is present for a show, we can’t crack any and every joke on him. There has to be limited mazaak (humour) and masti (fun). Even with Shah Rukh Khan, the limit of the masti has to be kept in mind,” added the 30-year-old, who has been a radio jockey earlier.

Paul got his first major break as an anchor with Wheel Ghar Ghar Mein. Post that, he replaced anchor Jay Bhanushali as anchor on Zee TV’s dance reality show, Dance India Dance, and even anchored Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Singing Superstar. He is currently hosting the fifth season of dance reality show Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa.

A Delhiite, Paul has been in Mumbai since 2005. He stepped into the acting world with TV show Ghost Bana Dost, and followed it up with shows like Chhoona Hai Aasmaan, Radhaa Ki Betiyaan Kuch Kar Dikhayengi and Pyaar Mein Twist.

He doesn’t want to venture into non-fiction content again.
