Manish is based in Leicester and is actually a circuit board technician by trade. A dedicated family man who realised his potential as a screen performer after taking a leap of faith when he decided to audition for the original PREMature pilot. Manish's ability to embrace his rough edges and apply his natural charisma to the role of Parthav has served him and the entire series greatly.
My role in PREMature is the failed patriarch of the family. I've pretty much destroyed my family through my selfish acts and tendencies. It's a dark journey for me to travel down this path that Parthav has laid out for himself. I believe myself to be a person who puts his wife and kids first and portraying a man who has done the opposite was perhaps one of the bigger challenges. Never acted before, so it was always going to be a daunting task but the entire cast and crew who I can rightly dub as family, provided a supportive environment. This is always important in a project where the naturalism of our reality is being recreated for a screen project - well that's my belief anyway. It's something I'm incredibly proud to be a part of.
