"I am excited to work with Tabu. She is a wonderful actress," the actor said.

"I will start shooting with her in my next which will be co-produced by myself. I am thrilled about this project. I can't reveal the plot of the film but it's an out and out thriller film," he added.

The yet-to-be titled film will be directed by debutant Mukul Abhyankar and co-produced by Neeraj Pandey.

Meanwhile, Manoj is busy promoting his next film "Tevar", produced by Boney Kapoor, and says he has lot of expectation from this film.

"I have a grey shade in 'Tevar' and I have enjoyed the role. I have worked with Boney before in 'Bewafa' which didn't work well at the box office but I am expecting a lot from this film," he said.

“The kind of films I am doing lately is great. This is the best phase now and I am getting more active about my films," he added.

"Tevar" features Arjun Kapoor and Sonakshi Sinha in the lead.
