Manoj features in a heart-wrenching portrayal of a man trapped within the walls and alleys of old Delhi and his own mind, and it is about how he attempts to break free to find a human connection. Manoj said that his character was mentally disturbed. "I started preparation for this role one and a half months before the shooting of the film. I am playing an electrician in the film who lives in the lane called ’Guli Guleiyan’ in Chandni Chowk. He fixes cameras at people’s houses and he wants to see what is happening in their lives,” he said.
Adding to the description of his character, Manoj said, “He is a mentally disturbed person who listens to a voice of a child who cries continuously as his father beats him and my character wants to save that child. So, in the entire film, my character tries to find that child so that he can save him.”
Recently, he also won the Best Actor Award at the Indian Film Festival of Melbourne (IFFM) for his role in the film. Manoj shared his experience and said, "I feel this will benefit our film as people are talking about it. We are releasing this film in India on September 7."
The movie also features actors Ranvir Shorey, Neeraj Kabi and Shahana Goswami.
