Actor and producer Manish Dahri aka Paara Singh, as known to the Punjabi audience from his show, is looking forward to his two big releases — Daddy Cool Munde Fool 2 and Vardaat. A graduate in Mass communication and journalism from DAV College, Jalandhar, Paara says his interest was never to join internships at news agencies. His curiosity about film-making took him to a shoot in 2013 and from there on he assisted in various Pollywood projects.
He started from a ‘filler’ show Paara Singh and now has his own talk show, Chah Te Chuski.
