Manish Paul to romance Sushmita Sen in a rom-com

Television actor cum host Manish Paul who has done few special roles before grabbing a full fledged role in 'Mickey Virus'  has bagged another promising project. The film in question is a rom-com and he will be seen opposite none other than the former beauty queen and Bollywood actress Sushmita Sen. Manish’s star is shining these days as he has been called back to host the dance celebrity show, ‘Jhalak Dikhhkla Jaa’ and now he has been signed in a movie opposite Sushmita Sen.

The pairing sounds a bit bizarre but it is almost confirmed that Manish will be paired 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 the 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."

After missing from Bollywood for couple of years, the Bong beauty will be debuting in Bengali movie with ‘Nirbaak’. Sushmita Sen was last seen in ‘No Problem’ in 2010.

Meanwhile, Sushmita and Manish remained unavailable for comment.
