She will be next seen in Vijay Sethupathi's Tughlaq Darbar. Manjima is playing the role of Sethupathi's sister in it. The actress was quite skeptical to take up this role initially. However, she did it after reading the complete script.
Manjima opened about her character in the film, in a recent interview. She said she was quite shocked when they offered her the role of Sethupathi's sister. She wondered why they approached her for a sister role. Later, her manager convinced her to listen to the script. After reading it, Manjima decided to do it without any second thoughts. She said that her role had a good scope in the movie. She doesn't have many dialogues but it was quite a challenging role for her. Directed by Delhi Prasad Deenadayal, this movie features Aditi Rao Hydari as the female lead. The first look poster got released recently and received a good response from the audiences.
Besides Tughlaq Darbar, Manjima is also acting in another film called FIR. Speaking about that film, she says that it is quite a powerful role. Manjima is playing the role of a lawyer in it. Directed by Manu Anand, this film features Vishal as the lead hero.
