Manoj was last seen in Okkadu Migiladu, which came out in 2017. The film failed to make a dent at the box office and did not also strike a chord with the critics. He has stayed away from the movies since. He was recently active during the elections of the Movie Artists Association (MAA). The bitterly fought content between the camps of his brother Vishnu Manchu and Prakash Raj made headlines for all the wrong reasons. The campaign, which got personal and bordered on bigotry, exposed the fault lines and rivalries in the industry.
Manoj played a significant role as a peacemaker between the quarrelling parties during the elections.
