“I was surprised but I did not even bother to ask him why, I just said yes and as soon as my shooting was over, I drove back to Mumbai. I was about four hours away from Mumbai but it really did not matter. I will always stand with Barry Sir,” explains Manoj.
“Actually he wanted me to address one of his classes with my experiences as an actor. So I came, gave my part of the speech, gave the students some tips, met with my alma mater and drove back to the shoot.
But you know, everytime I meet him, I learn something more as an actor," he adds. As for Barry John, he simply shrugs his shoulders with the comment that Manoj is a very good student and he is proud to be his teacher.
