Mickey Virus actor Manish Paul, who is all geared up for his Bollywood debut, hasn't forgotten his TV hosting days. On his recent visit to HT House, the light-hearted actor said he wants to continue anchoring Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa only for Madhuri Dixit.

"I don't think I want to leave hosting. Jhalak I will host for Madhuriji, and for holding that pallu", Paul confessed.

About the film, Manish said he will be seen in a James Bond avatar and has even gone topless. Interestingly, public will get to see some shades of actor Govinda in his character, especially the way he is dressed.

Talking about the casting, director Saurabh Varma said: "I feel the casting is perfect. Even Manish Chaudhary is perfect for cop's role. He actually went and spent some time in a police station, trying to adapt the character. And, I finalized Elli after taking 50-100 auditions".

Elli Avram, who is currently in the Bigg Boss house, will be seen opposite Manish Paul in Mickey Virus.

The film is set to release on 25 October.
