Fiction must have element of reality: Manav Gohil

New Delhi, Oct 2 (IANS) Television actor Manav Gohil, currently seen in "Khelti Hai Zindagi Aankh Micholi", feels that it is important to have realistic elements in fiction shows as well.

"Fiction must have an element of reality in it. I am glad that people are trying to pen down and display things in a realistic way," Manav told IANS in a telephonic interview.

"Khelti Hai Zindagi Aankh Micholi" revolves around the struggle of a single mother Shruti (Gautami Kapoor) and Manav is seen as her friend Sanjay.

The realistic side of his character attracted him to the show.

"He is a real guy. This is what I like about him. The idea was to keep it as close to the reality as possible. This encouraged me to take it up," he said.
