Manisha Koirala's last movie 'Escape From Taliban' may have bombed at theatres, but the actress is hopeful that her forthcoming movie 'Market' will end the jinx.
Although 'Market' is yet to hit the marquee, Manisha is all praise for the film's director Prakash Shaw. She is particularly excited about the movie's offbeat subject, which is inspired by a real life incident of a simple girl being forced into prostitution.
Being made at a budget of Rs 50 million, 'Market' has Manisha playing a Hyderabadi girl Muskaan, who gets married to an Arab (Tony Mirchandani). A couple of days after marriage, he divorces her, leaving her to fend for herself.
Poverty-stricken, Muskaan has no choice but to take up prostitution. Circumstances take the Hyderbadi girl to Mumbai, where she meets college-going high-class hookers (Suman Ranganathan and Shweta Mennon), who polish her. Thereafter, the three go to Dubai for dance shows. Muskaan meets her ex-husband again and plots revenge.
Even as Manisha awaits 'Market' release in the coming months, the actress says that she is done with doing the clichéd roles in Bollywood films and is now "looking for some challenging roles."
"I like doing small films with different storylines. They give me a chance to experiment with roles. Besides, they are working nowadays," says the Nepalese beauty.
