And though he is tightlipped about the project, it has emerged that Manish will feature in a film opposite Sushmita Sen.

Says a source, "It is a romantic comedy and things are hush-hush at this stage. The makers want to make an announcement when the time is right. Those concerned with the project had been told to keep mum till everything is in place."

Adds a source, "The film is a comic caper and since Manish has already displayed his flair for comedy on reality shows, he was roped in. It is an unusual casting but the makers were keen to have Sush in their project and she is looking forward to making people laugh with this film."

The actress, who is debuting in Bengali cinema with Nirbaak, has been missing from Bollywood for the past few years. She was last seen in No Problem (2010).

Sushmita and Manish remained unavailable for comment.
