"I didn't become an actor overnight. It was a conscious decision and I struggled a lot. Therefore, I am choosy about my roles," Manit, who is currently seen on "Mujhse Kuchh Kehti...Yeh Khamoshiyaan", told IANS.
Manit is happy with the way his career has shaped up.
"I feel my career graph is going up. I always wanted to become an actor first and then a star and not the other way around," he said.
He says all the roles he has essayed so far are close to him.
"All my roles were close to me. Somewhere down the line, I have lived in those situations too. Garv, my character in 'Khamoshiyan' is so much like I am (in real life). He sees life the way I see it," he said.
"For me it is very important to fall in love with my character. After that it is up to people how they like it," he said.
The entire industry is focused on TRPs (television rating points) of their shows but Manit says he is not bothered about the numbers game.
"The TRPs decide how good a show really is, but I don't get nervous with all this. It is a small thing which cannot be described. I don't like to get into the business part of it at all," he said.
Also, he admits he is open to all roles - positive or negative. As long as the character is strong.
"Everyone has a grey side and most of the characters are situationally grey. Plus, the audience has become smart now and understand that you are playing a role. I am an actor and I need to do everything. So all I see is if the character has content...," he said.
