After portraying the role of a ‘boy next door’ in Star’s Saarthi, Manav Gohil was recently seen as an Icchadhari Naag in Aruna Irani’s latest creation – Naginn. Manav had a totally different look, unseen costumes and was seen in a completely different avtar. The TellyBuzz team talks to Manav Gohil about his experience of doing a mythological show like Naginn.

How did Naagin happen? You were there for just 2 episodes… Why did you choose to do this role?

Yes, I was only a part of the show for 2-3 episodes. I actually did the show for Arunaji, I have high regards for that woman, she is just such a warm and friendly person. I have worked with her before, and she came and approached me to do Naginn. I couldn’t say no, and especially when I knew that my role was only for 2-3 episodes.

How was the experience doing a mythological show?

It was difficult. I just couldn’t relate to the character, or the costumes. I wasn’t comfortable with the language and the character sketch. Come on, how am I supposed to know how a Icchadhari Naag should be like, (laughter) so yea, it was difficult, and I am glad it was just an extremely short cameo. I wouldn’t be able to handle it for long. But end of the day, it was a good experience and a fun experiment.

Talking about Saarthi, are you planning to make a come back there?

No, I’ve quit Saarthi. I do not want to talk about it.

Any new project in the pipeline?

Yes, I have an interesting project coming up soon. It’s in the pipeline, it will be officially announced on the 14th or 15th of this month. I can’t reveal much about it right now. Wait and watch, it’s going to be bigger and better!

suitI don't think anybody else would have suited that role. Manav really looks like one Ichadhari Naag.. I'm a great fan of his but alas he is only in 2 episodes..
