Bollywood actor Manoj Bajpai , who is busy shooting for his next film Jugaad says it is a real life story in the times of Delhi sealing told in a very humorous way.

"The film is based on Delhi sealing and is a humorous take on it," says Manoj, who is known for his realistic portrayals in films like Satya , Shool and 'Tamanna'.

"It is the true story of none other than the producer of the film, Sandeep Kapur. He had an ad agency and during the drive in Delhi his office was sealed. We have developed his real life drama into a fiction and I have stepped into his shoes," he explains.

However, Manoj says there is no comment on sealing as such in the film. "We have not made any political comment on sealing. It is more about the protagonist's struggle to get his life back on track," he says.

But why it is called 'Jugaad'? "Well, it's all about the 'jugaads' that the man does with his friends to get back his office, so its title is aptly kept as 'Jugaad'," quips Manoj.

So, what is his expectation from the film? "We have tried to show that no time is worse if you can give all your effort you can come out of it and we hope that the message reaches the audience," he says.

Manoj, who had a quiet last year with all three of his films-- 1971 , Swami , Dus Kahaniyaan -- bombing at the box-office, is all set to give the audience a dose of comedy this year.

"For the first time I am doing an out-an-out comedy 'Money Hai To Honey Hai' with Govinda directed by Ganesh Acharya. Then, of course, there is 'Jugaad' and I am also doing a film called 'Acid Factory' directed by Sanjay Gupta ," says Manoj, who made his debut in Shekhar Kapoor 's, 'Bandit Queen' starring Seema Biswas.

So how was it working with chi-chi? "I have always been crazy about Govinda's films and working with him has really been a learning experience," he says.

Manoj who spent a major portion of his life in Delhi says, he just loves coming back to the city whenever he gets a chance.

"I have spent 11 precious years of my life here. My acting career took off here. I have studied in Ramjas college, done theatres here. Delhi has given me many things," says Manoj.
