In his hometown, he started to write poetry during his school days. His friends took him to ‘Mushaira’ where he began reciting his poetry. After his graduation, he moved to Mumbai in search of work in 1999 with just Rs. 700 in his pocket. There, Manoj met the Indian singer and Musician Anup Jalota who asked him to write a Bhajan for him. Although he had never written any Bhajan before, he took the project because he needed money. After he wrote the Bhajan, Anup gave him a check for Rs. 3000, which was his first salary in Mumbai. In 2004, he was assigned to write the songs for the film ‘Rang Rasiya,’ but due to some problems, the film was released almost a decade later in 2014.
