But what would have Manish been if not an actor? Have we ever thought about it?
Manish spoke about this to TellyBuzz's What If…
What If…. with Manish Raisinghania
"I would have been an engineer had I not become an actor and I was working as well before I got into acting.
I completed my Mechanical Engineering from D Y Patil College of Engineering, Pune and after that I was working with an American Company called Owens Corning India Ltd in Mumbai. But how much ever you earn as an engineer being an actor was always a pleasure. So when I told this to my parents, they trusted me and my grounded nature after which they finally agreed to it even after a lot of reluctance.
But in future I do not think I can go back to Mechanical Engineering because today electronics and gadgets get me high. I love developing software and today it is software technology that interests me now. I am a gizmo and a phone freak. I bought the latest Samsung Galaxy S II series. I also have a Blackberry Torch and now I am waiting for iPhone 5. I also like to get into property and real estate business."
