TV is getting more competitive: Manav Gohil
Manav Gohil
Actor Manav Gohil is happy to have discovered a space for himself in the showbiz. The actor is elated following his debut in a Gujarati movie titled Saptapadii.

Manav, who has many small screen outings to his credit seems to be enjoying multitasking as he juggles between fatherhood, his current TV show Buddy Project and experimenting with his entrepreneurial skills. "Whatever space I have created for myself, life's good in that space," says Manav who's happy to enjoy his role as a father. "I got to spend time with Zahra during my recent trip to Australia and I also offer to baby sit Zahra and ask Shweta (Kawatra) to go out and have fun," he says. 

A proud Gujarati, the actor feels, it's about time Gujarati cinema braces itself to make an impact on the viewers. The actor, who was seen playing the lead opposite Swaroop Sampat in his first Gujarati film, says, "Almost every regional cinema industry is flourishing in India. Sometimes, I ask, 'what's wrong with Gujarati film industry?' It has talented technicians, scriptwriters and best of the literature, yet Gujarati cinema is not flourishing. So when I got to do a Gujarati film, I said to myself, 'if I can be a part of this progressive movement, why shouldn't I grab the chance?' Gujaratis should be proud of watching a Gujarati movie in a theatre." In the same breath Manav adds, "I could never relate to the regressive rural cinema of Gollywood because I had the option of watching Bollywood films." 

Talking about his bonding with Swaroop, Manav says, "I was in awe of Swaroop initially. But she would make me feel really comfortable." 

Manav who's busy with his TV show Buddy Project says, "Doing a daily soap doesn't leave you with much time. Doing two shows at one time does not go well with me. I want to focus on one particular thing at a time." 

The one mantra that the actor is very particular about his life is to stay happy. "I believe in happiness for self and others. Every life has a mission and I want to remain in the purview of my mission," says the actor who feels, one needs to be focused in order to make a mark in TV today. 

"When the 'why' is clear, the 'how' will follow. You don't join TV to become famous, but to become an actor," says Manav. "TV is getting more competitive because of more new talent. And competition is just getting steeper each day." He signs off.
