Mumbai: Mahesh Manjrekar thinks he is best behind the camera and that is the reason why he wants to give up acting and not face the camera anymore. But there is someone who always coaxes him to come onscreen and to whom he just cannot say no. Salman Khan at all times is successful in roping in Manjeraker even if he has vowed to give up acting.
If sources are to be believed, Salman convinced Manjrekar to play debutante Sonakshi Sinha`s father in his home production ‘Dabangg’. That was meant to be his swan song as an actor.
But news has it that Manjrekar has once again been persuaded to face the camera with Salman for Anees Bazmi`s ‘Ready’. However, the most ironical part about the director`s enforced career as an actor is that he doesn`t know what his role in ‘Ready’ is!
Speaking to a news daily Mahesh said, “Salman said you have to do it. I know, I decided I won`t be acting any more. But you can`t say no to Salman. He said, `You`re in `Ready` and you`re part of my family in the film. Beyond that all I know is I play a positive role for a change.”
