Actress Manisha Koirala, best
known for her performances in films like Khamoshi, 1942: A
Love Story, Bombay and Dil Se, is set to make a sort of
comeback in Bollywood after a brief break.
"I will talk about my films later. Because I don't
know when the directors and producers are ready to make an
announcement. But there are three films whose script I have
okayed. I am meeting two more directors, I am okaying those
scripts as well," Manisha told reporters here last night.
"This year I will be working (on these films), so
next year would be a kind of comeback," she said.
The 42-year-old Nepali-Indian actress made her acting
debut in Bollywood with Subhash Ghai's Saudagar (1991),
which was a huge hit.
After years of success, she was later seen in several
low-budget films like Paisa Vasool (2004), Sirf (2008) and
a few others, which were box office dud.
Recently, it was reported that Madhur Bhandarkar's
much-awaited film Heroine is inspired by Manisha's life.
Bhandarkar has, however, denied such reports.
When asked Manisha about the same, she said, "I hope
he knows me well to make a movie on me."
Manisha was here to see filmmaker Vidhu Vinod Chopra's
blockbuster Parinda (1989).
"He is one of the finest directors we have today. I
was fortunate to work with him in 1942: A love Story," the
award-winning actress said.
