The Popular TV anchor, who is foraying into Bollywood with Mickey Virus, a film set against the backdrop of hacking, says youngsters will find a connect with the film.
Directed by debutant Saurabh Verma, Mickey Virus is a comedy-thriller and features Manish as a computer hacker named Mickey Arora.
“I think so far, no film has been made on hacking, and youngsters will really connect with the film because today everything is online. People shop online, even education is online,” said Manish during promotion of the film.
At the event, he was accompanied by his co-stars Puja Gupta and Swedish actor Elli Avram. Puja revealed that in the film, she plays a tomboy, who helps Mickey in all his odd jobs. “I have a tomboyish character in the film and I am basically one of the boys in the movie. In the film, you will see me doing all guys kind of activities,” she said.
She calls it more like a ‘Tom and Jerry’ (popular animated cartoon films) relationship. “Mickey and my friendship, I take it as more like a ‘Tom and Jerry’, neither we can live without each other nor with each other,” said Puja. Shot entirely in Delhi, Mickey Virus is slated to release October 25.
