He was approached by a 32-year-old man from Chennai through a social networking site and Manish said: "I thought about it and I felt that there is nothing wrong in it. It is just a kind gesture. That is it."
The actor feels that if people can accept "Vicky Donor", they would understand his decision too. He feels current generation is matured.
"They have accepted a film like 'Vicky Donor'. Everyone understands that this is normal. There will be a lot of people who would agree with me," he added.
Manish has been part of shows like "Madhubala-Ek Ishq Ek Junoon", "Banoo Mein Teri Dulhann", "Santaan", and "Rehna Hai Teri Palkon Ki Chhaon Mein".
Of course, he had apprehensions and took one-and-a-half week to comply to the request.
"I had apprehensions. I took one-and-a-half week to think about it. If people like Shah Rukh Khan and Aamir Khan can go for surrogacy, then what is wrong with this? If abortion is a crime, then giving life is a good deed," he said.
