The role of Mickey Virus seems to have been tailor-made for TV star Manish Paul, who makes his big Bollywood debut in this comedy.
According to Manish, “I am working in a film where my screen name is my real-life name and the lead character belongs to the same place in New Delhi where I grew up.”
Here are three intersting similarities between Manish Paul and the Mickey Virus character:
1) Manish was born and brought up in Malviya Nagar in New Delhi. So, when he heard the script of the film, which was about a computer hacker living in Malviya Nagar, he knew he wanted to do this.
2) Manish’s nick name in real life, ironically, is Mickey.
3) Integral parts of the film have been shot in Nehru Place, a location that has many fond memories of the gastronomic kind, for Manish. He used to stand in a line at his favorite eatery to eat rajma-chawal.
