He cracks the bad joke as confidently as any stand up cracks the good one. He admits that he has the great collection of shoes because of those bad jokes. Despite of his bad jokes, people love him and watch the reality shows only because of him. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, I am talking about Manish Paul. I doubt there is hardly any host in India better than him. He makes the flop shows, a big hit, just on the basis of his anchoring. There are a lot of anchors or hosts in India. Television actors, film actors, all do anchoring in different types of shows on T.V. but Manish Paul is the only one who knows how to do it.
His confidence, his wit, his presence of mind, his way of speaking, his energy takes the show to the next level. He is good looking, presentable and he carries himself really well. Moreover, he do the toughest job, he brings a smile to people’s face. He introduces the contestant or participant by adding funny analogy related to him or her and he gives utmost respect to judges, parents and celebs. Along with that, he appreciates contestants on their performances. Manish Paul knows the art of making people happy and that quality makes him best in the business. It is not easy to notice and pick up small things around the people and present it in a (not insulting) funny way. It is an art and Manish is a master of it.
Manish was born and brought up in a Punjabi family in Delhi. He started his career as a host in Delhi. Manish used to host cultural events in schools and colleges. He got his first break on T.V. in 2002. He has been Radio city’s RJ as well. Manish has done films, he has sung songs. There isn’t anything he hasn’t done in the field of media. Manish’s age is 37 and he doesn’t even look 30. Manish has set the standards for the upcoming generations. The biggest benchmark he has set while hosting is his comic timing, sense of humour and his screen presence. I haven’t seen any male host carrying pink and yellow shiny shoes on the screen so well. So it is really difficult (or nearly impossible) to get into his shoes.
I watch reality shows only because of Manish Paul.
90s Kid’s connection
My family watches only those reality shows in which Manish Paul is the host. My mum fight with us to watch Manish Paul in action. She clearly says, “I watch reality shows only because of Manish Paul.” As a 90s Kid, I am highly impressed by his confidence and his ability to make people laugh. Making people laugh is not easy at all, people shiver while delivering a written speech. And Manish Paul does it with ease, the best part is, he makes it look very easy. I think the best gift you can give to someone is a smile. Manish Paul is gifting a smile to people from the last 15 years. Imagine, after a tough day when one switch on the T.V. and get a smile on his/her face (by watching Manish Paul), what else he/she wants in life! I do that quite often. Whenever I am stressed or feeling low, I watch Manish Paul in action.
I think the 90s generation should take inspiration from his style of hosting and should try to learn a few tricks from him in life. Aspiring hosts should adopt his hosting style. Moreover, the 90s generation should get inspiration from his workaholism. Even after 15 years, Manish Paul is still the best in the industry then he would have some work ethics and 90s kids should adopt that as well.
Lastly, people find USPs in a show, I would say if you have Manish Paul as a host of your show, you don’t need any other USP. Manish Paul as a host is the biggest USP of any reality show.
