me too man...waiting eagerly...
i found this in a Star TV Forum Archive (I think its about the chat he had on I-F Radio):
"Manoj told his viewers that before acting, he was into directing and he was assisting BP Singh in directing some hit serials for Sony and then acting happened to him and he was picked up for the role of Nakul and then Dhruv.
Manoj further said that he was spotted at a Bombay Times party one day and the same night he got a call from the production house telling him that he's been finalised to play the role of Prem. Manoj was told that Prem was going to be really big but he did not believe those people and was actually in two minds about continuing with the role but decided to take the risk and is glad that he's been rewarded.
Manoj says he does not have any specific role model but he admires the way Amitabh Bachchan interacts and behaves with the audience, Shekhar Suman's spontaneity, Shahrukh Khan's boundless energy- so he follows the characteristics and not any role model as he thinks having one hampers the way you model yourself and cuts some of your individuality.
Manoj thinks that the baadshah of TV is Mr.Amitabh Bachchan.
There were loads of messages coming in live asking Manoj to say -"I love u" to them and Manoj sweetly obliged. On asking when he was gonna get married, Manoj said that he was very steady with Teejay Siddhu and they plan to get married by the end of this year and he's surely going to end up with Teejay and no one else.
Manoj's favorite colors are red and yellow. Manoj does not hate any color. Manoj says that his biggest strength is his family and his girlfriend and all his friends and his biggest weakness is that he's not organised. He said he plans to get organised when he gets married. There were questions asking him if he was sure of marrying Teejay and Manoj told them that he was 100% sure.
Manoj says that he's a pure vegetarian, he does not smoke and does not drink. He likes to meditate and have good food and he also does not like to have a lot of junk food materials.Manoj has one sister who's married and is now settled in USA. Manoj's big time into spirituality and says it helps him meditate.
Manoj told that the first time fans recognised him was when he was playing the role of Kabir in Just Mohabbat, a soap on Sony and they were fishermen who mobbed him when he went to immerse his idol of Lord Ganesha at the beach. Manoj tells he has never been happier. Manoj thinks that the best role he's ever played is Prem and he misses being part of Kkusum because of the chemistry he shared with all co-actors.
His girlfriend, Teejay styled him for the look of Prem based on the research she'd done when she lived in Vancouver. Manoj tells us that Teejay loves watching him on TV and the first reaction he gave after watching himself on TV was="Hey! Who's that good looking guy?!"
He's going to activate and launch his personal website for his fans in the next 10 days and has told his fans to look out for his new hairdo which they will be able to see in a few days. Manoj's debut Bollywood film will release soon. He said that he loves all his fans and told him to keep watching him.
