Manish Naggdev can play out a sweet role to perfection, both in reel and real lives. He is popular as the loving Chinmay in "Banoo Main Teri Dulhan". Recently he was angelic to a street urchin at a road crossing.
When Manish's car halted at a traffic signal, a young girl selling flowers walked up to him and requested him to buy some. By the time Manish said that he was not interested in the deal, the girl had recognized him as a television actor. Such was her excitement that she selected the best blooms from the bunch and gifted it to Manish, who was deeply touched by the gesture. He immediately bought all the flowers that the girl was selling.
"It was so touching. I didn't expect her to recognize me as these poor people do not really get to watch television. But the way she gave me those flowers for free was just overwhelming," recalled Manish.
Now, that's called flower power, eh?
