Just like them, even our Bollywood stars couldn't get enough of Manisha's throwback picture, While Dia Mirza and Lisa Ray dropped heart emoticons, Tabu called her, "Beauty." Shruti Haasan posted a heart-eyed emoji on Manisha's post. Ayushmann Khurrana shared Manisha's picture on his Instagram story and captioned it as, "just a Manisha Koirala appreciation story."
Manisha Koirala made her debut in Bollywood with Subhash Ghai's Saudagar in 1991, and went on to star in films like 1942: A Love Story, Bombay, Akele Hum Akele Tum, Khamoshi: The Musical, Gupt, Dil Se amongst others.
In her memoir 'Healed: How Cancer Gave Me a New Life', the actress had recalled how she was once called a 'terrible' actress by director-producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra. The actress had mentioned, "I remember my screen test for 1942: A Love Story. Veteran filmmaker Vidhu Vinod Chopra had called me to do a scene. But to my disappointment, at the end of it he remarked, 'Manisha, you were sh*t. You're a terrible actress." She then urged him to give her a day's time and a chance to audition again. The next day, Manisha gave her best shot in the audition and left Vidhu speechless.
After being diagnosed with cancer in 2012, Manisha took a sabbatical from acting. Post recovery, she made her Bollywood comeback with Dear Maya in 2017. The actress was last seen in AR Rahman's romantic musical 99 Songs.
