Television actor Manish Naggdev, who is going Vicky Donar way by agreeing to donate his sperm, says if people like Shah Rukh Khan and Aamir Khan can go for surrogacy, then what is wrong in this!
He was approached by a 32-year-old man from Chennai through a social networking site and Manish said: "I thought about it and I felt that there is nothing wrong in it. It is just a kind gesture. That is it."
The actor feels that if people can accept Vicky Donor, they would understand his decision too. He feels current generation is matured. "They have accepted a film like Vicky Donor. Everyone understands that this is normal. There will be a lot of people who would agree with me," he added.
Manish has been part of shows like Madhubala, Banoo Mein Teri Dulhann, Santaan, and Rehna Hai Teri Palkon Ki Chhaon Mein.
Of course, he had apprehensions and took one-and-a-half week to comply to the request. "I had apprehensions. I took one-and-a-half week to think about it. If people like Shah Rukh Khan and Aamir Khan can go for surrogacy, then what is wrong with this? If abortion is a crime, then giving life is a good deed," he said.
It was Manish's passion for acting that got him enrolled in the course.
After a series of auditions Manish got his first break for a leading commercial followed by a negative role of a killer which he portrayed in the detective serial- CID.
Likes Negative Roles
He feels playing a positive character is much more challenging, "When you have to play a negative character, you can act loudly. You can play with the character, raise your eyebrows, and give that evil smile and attitude. But when you are playing a positive guy, you have to be very subtle. You have to reflect everything positive. I feel it is challenging to play a positive character," he had said.
