TV actor Manav Gohil turns blogger for fans
Television actor Manav Gohil, seen in shows like “Saara Akaash”, and “Kkusum”, has now joined the celebrity blog bandwagon.
Manav, who is set for his Bollywood debut with Dharmesh Darshan’s “Bhanvraa”, was tempted to start his blog www.manavblogs.blogspot.com when he was shooting for the film.
“Once I started shooting for my film, I got really busy. A lot of people used to send me e-mails and some used to write on my Facebook. But, I couldn’t take out time to reply. It was not feasible,” Manav told IANS over phone from Mumbai.
“I had overseas fans who were in regular touch with me. But now people can come on my blog and learn what all I am doing,” he added.
The actor says he will post entries on his blog “at least four times a week”.
In his very first post, Manav has spoken about the completion of the shooting of “Bhanvraa” and why he was away from the limelight since so long.
