Manisha Koirala Is In Love
This is her second innings in more than one aspect For Manisha Koirala is back in action with three releases set for this year a handful more in the pipeline.
What’s more, she’s lost oodles of weight and gained loads of oomph. She’s experimenting with film roles and is revelling in love.
Life is sunny fro her even in this dull weather. First let me tell you about her movies. First up is Chehere, where Manisha plays a double role of sorts. “It’s the same character, but placed in two different eras and thus having two distinct looks and two contrasting storylines. From a successful actress of the silent era cinema to a fading actress of modern cinema, it is a complex character,” Manisha states. “It was challenging to find a balance,” she adds.
But challenges have never been a setback for the actress (Bombay, Khamoshi, Dil Se, Gupt, Company... just a few of her memorable performances), and she’s hungry for more. There’s also Deepti Naval’s directorial debut Do Paise Ki Dhoop, Chaar Aane Ki Baarish and Ek Second... Jo Zindagi Badal De, where she again plays a character that undergoes a complete transformation — “It’s the same girl who leads two different lives.” So, with so much up her sleeve, does she consider 2009 to be her comeback year? “A comeback means you had gone away, but I was right here! I chose to lie low in the middle because the roles I was being offered were not exciting enough,” Manisha honestly admits.
Now let us move on to the other thing that Manisha has always been in the spotlight for - her relationships. The latest reports on her personal life stated that she was to tie the knot with her American boyfriend Christopher Dorris earlier this year. “That was just wishful thinking on some people’s part! No, I am not married but I am in a steady relationship. I’m happy.”
