Manisha Koirala Biography

She descended from the mountains bordering India. Was part of a family of established politicians who wielded power for years in her land. She was of a royal pedigree.

Manisha Koirala was pristine and had her roots in the Koirala family in Nepal. Surprisingly enough, the then newcomer did not resort to her influential family to provide her with a launching pad in Bollywood.

She came on her own, with slight opposition from folks, and managed to create a base on her own. Bagged a Subhash Ghai for an opening. Though Saudaagar had quite a handful of the film industry's stalwarts like Dilip Kumar, Raj Kumar, Anupam Kher, Manisha's presence was felt and appreciated. She was heralded as one of the future star-heroines of Mumbai.

Saudaagar' did not do as well as it was expected to do. But Manisha set her charms on the industry. She was unusually attractive and was willing to experiment with her talent. Offers poured in but Manisha was careful in filling her bag.

Her range began from Love Letter to 1942: A Love Story' to more serious ones like Akele Hum Akele Tum, Agnisakshi, Bombay, Khamoshi, Dil Se and Mann.

It is a paradox that though most of Manisha's films failed to thunder at the box office, the actress's niche was unharmed. She continued to get her share. Clubbed with her allure was her chic lifestyle that separated her from the rest in the band.

In a career spanning a decade, the Nepali beauty has done her variety and still has zest to 'work in meaningful projects'. Films apart, the person in Manisha does not shy away from taking on responsibilities to improve the state of people in the country. Women, rather girl children have called her attention and she is doing her bit to make a difference to their lives.

Films will continue to happen. But Manisha is above the rat race. She has her own territory and producers will always come back to her when they need a kaanchi with a mind for their films.
