The Mickey Virus star is stepping into the shoes of veteran actor Farooque Sheikh in the Khalid Mohamed’s-directed film of the same name.
“All set to start my new film Katha… Nervous, excited, happy! Too many feelings and thoughts! First day on the set is always like that,” Manish, 33, posted on Twitter.
The original film featured Naseeruddin Shah, DeeNaval and Sheikh in the lead roles. It was loosely based on the classical Indian folktale of the hare and the tortoise.
