â€œI always wanted to get back to my original name but did not find the right time. After Kasauti I was out of television as movies followed. Now when I got Sonyâ€™s Mr and Miss Television I thought it will be the right time to move to Karnvir from Manoj,â€ he adds.Prem of Kasuatii Zindagi Kay has reverted to his original name Karnvir Bora. Earlier called Manoj the actor tells us the reason for the reversal.
â€œWell there is no specific reason for changing my name. As per my kundali my name is Karnvir but during my school days my grandfather decided to name me Manoj,â€ says Karnvir.
So whatâ€™s next for you? â€œCurrently on television Iâ€™m just doing this one show. I have one film with Aziz Mirza starring Shahid Kapur and Vidya Balan called Kosmic Konnection. Besides that Iâ€™ve an offer from Shree Jagannath Films for a lead role. I canâ€™t reveal anything as the shoot of this untitled film is not yet started,â€ he avers.
Are you calling it quits for television? â€œI consider myself as an actor. The medium does not matter to me. If I get good work in TV I donâ€™t mind taking it up. Letâ€™s see what television has to offer me,â€ he chirps.
You never know Manoj, Karnvir could prove luckier.
