Mumbai: Anchor-actor Manish Paul, who makes his debut as lead actor in `Micky Virus`, says his anchoring experience helped him when he faced the camera to act.

The 31-year-old has hosted shows like "Dance India Dance Li`l Masters" and "Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Singing Superstar". However, he was hugely appreciated for his energetic and spontaneous performance on "Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 5" as its host.

"Anchoring has helped me facing the camera because initially I was not that confident about being in front of the camera," Manish told IANS and added he got comfortable with acting after doing workshops.

"When I started acting, I was conscious that I should not sound like an anchor, but acting workshops helped me there," he added.

Directed by debutante Saurabh Verma, Manish will be seen as computer hacker in "Mickey Virus".
