"Yes, the character is that of a 60-year-old professor who is gay. We are going to start shooting in January and the preparations have already started," said Manoj.

Mehta, who found prominence since he directed critically acclaimed 'Shahid', based the film on the life of slain lawyer and human rights activist Shahid Azmi.

Now his film with Manoj is inspired by a suspended professor at Aligarh University who was filmed on spy-cam having consensual sex with a rickshaw-puller just days before he was going to retire.
