The film is a story of life of Khundrakpam Pradip Kumar Singh after he discovered that he was infected with HIV virus in 2000. Pradip joined a gym despite doctors' warnings and won the Mr Manipur title in 2007.

Mr India, which has won more than 12 awards across the globe and also screened at the Indian Panorama section of the International Film Festival of India (IFFI) will now be directly available on DVDs even though filmmaker Haobam Pabankumar tried hard to convince theatre owners to run the documentary.
