He may be one of the most spontaneous and quirky hosts on Indian television but Manish Paul says he is always scared before appearing on stage.
The 32-year-old TV anchor, who will be seen hosting a show called ‘The Science of Stupid’ on National Geographic channel, feels probably his fear prompts him to deliver his best.
“It is a fear that prompts me to do better. Honestly, I am very scared when I am backstage. I am not sure what I will do. But when I am on stage, I think God starts playing his role because I never remember what I say during those moments. I get to know that the episode went well when other people come and tell me,” Manish told PTI in an interview.

Talking about his new hosting gig on TV, Manish said he was attracted to the show because he was a bad science student.
“I was not a good science student. That was one of the reasons to take up this show because I thought I may get to learn something finally and I did learn quite a bit. My role required me to explain the science behind bizarre accidents,” Manish said about the show, which premieres on July 21 on NGC.
He was brought back to host the current season of ‘Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa’ on popular demand and he credits TV for giving him a very loyal audience.
“I have already wrapped up ‘Science of Stupid’ whereas I shoot Jhalak for only four days a month. Rest of the time goes to my film projects. TV is a very strong medium now and I got my recognition from TV. People went to watch ‘Micky Virus’ because they knew me through TV. Currently, I am enjoying the best of both worlds,” he said.
Manish is awaiting the release of his second film, a sequel to ‘Tere Bin Laden’, which he promises would be better than the first movie.
“I can promise that this one will be better than the original film. In fact, you can call it a different film rather than calling it a sequel.”
The ‘Micky Virus’ actor has also signed a romantic comedy.
