If TV host Ayushmann Khurrana played sperm donor Vicky, Manish Paul is set to play Punjabi computer geek Mickey in his debut film "Oye Mickey".

First time director Saurabh Varma will wield the megaphone for the movie.

"Every actor wants to gradually go on to the big screen. I had met many filmmakers before but when Saurabh narrated the script to me, everything fell in place. The film has drama, action and comic element too," Manish, who is currently co-hosting dance reality show "Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa", said in a statement.

"I would still not leave television completely and work things out between television and films," he added.

Manish has previously acted in television serials like "Ghost Bana Dost", "Radhaa Ki Betiyaan Kuch Kar Dikhayengi" and "Pyaar Mein Twist".

Set in Delhi, "Oye Mickey" is a comic thriller which revolves around the life of a Punjabi computer geek Mickey (played by Manish) who plans a con of a lifetime. The other cast members are yet to be finalised.

Varma, who has also written the film, said he has been auditioning for about six months and when someone suggested Manish, "I realised I have got my Micky".

"He has perfect comic timing and a very innocent face required for the character of a typical Delhi boy. I am glad to have found Manish for this character... we couldn't have found anyone more appropriate than him," added the filmmaker.
