Price Manish paid to play Chanakya 

Neha Maheshwri 

After doing numerous shows like Mitwa - Phool Kamal Ke,Aamrapali,Kohinoor,actor Manish Wadhva,is now playing Chanakya (famous for his political astuteness) in Imagine TVs Chandragupta Maurya.He has worked in historicals like Shaurya Aur Suhani and Rajkumar Aryan,however,the acclaimed character of Chanakya came to him at a price.The actor had to shave off his hair.I was in two minds about shaving myself bald.But the moment I used to think about the character,it gave me the push to go ahead with the decision. Talking about the preparations,Manish says,I tried reading some books,which eventually became difficult,as I began shooting for the show.My creative team and the script of the show have helped me immensely to understand the character and its background.Essaying a character becomes a cakewalk if you are convinced by it.I could have given anything to play Chanakya. But Chanakya is known to be an impassive ideologist who didnt let emotions deter or distract him,so how practical is Manish in real life I am both emotional and practical.I think every human has both the qualities but only the percentage of the two differs.I think Chanakya,too,was an emotional man or why would he care so much about his country.But he always kept his emotional side hidden.

CALCULATIVE: Manish Wadhva
