Manit shares the amazing experience of being a stand-in for the actor with Telly Buzz. "Stand-in is actually the person who is between the actor and the camera person/light man before the actor can actually stand his position to give the take. It is this stand-in who will decide the position in which the shot has to be taken. I was chosen for this particular role as I am of the same height as Hrithik, and also have the same hair style as him".
In addition to the stand-in scenes just before a shot is taken, Manit also did the horse riding sequences, the long shots etc for Hrithik. "It was a complete learning experience for me. I learnt a lot about technicality, which will help me in the future too. It was a great honour to stand in place of Hrithik in such a big film", he signs off.
Well, it surely should have been a moment to cherish for Manit!!
