In the poster, the 49-year-old actor looks like an intense person who seems to be lost and confused, suggesting that film will be different and will have a strong story line.
Manoj is portraying the role of a man trapped within the walls and alleys of old Delhi and his own mind in the film.
Talking about the character, the actor said: “What attracted me to ‘Gali Guleiyan’ was the content, which looks at the other ‘claustrophobic’ side of the colourful picture that several movies have manifested of old Delhi in the past.”
Directed by Dipesh Jain, the film which also features actors Ranvir Shorey, Neeraj Kabi and Shahana Goswami.
