Bollywood actress of Nepali origin is back in Nepal, shooting for her upcoming Nepali film â€œDharmaâ€. Her first and the only one Nepali movie, Pheri Bhetaula, was released some 22 years back. The movie was not that successful and she left for Mumbai to seek acting opportunities there.
Manisha Koirala was born on August 16, 1970 in Kathmandu Nepal. She is popular as an actress in Indian films, a UNFPA Goodwill Ambassador, and social activist. Manisha started her career in a Nepali movie ‘Pheri Bhetaula’ in 1989. In India, she has worked in various Hindi and Tamil films. Some of the notable hindi moives are Saudagar, A Love Story, Akele Hum Akele Tum, Khamoshi: The Musical, Gupt: The Hidden Truth, and Dil Se. A Tamil movie Bombay was also one of her very successful movies. In recognition to her acting talent she has received some prestigious awards in the movie industry.
After 22 years of absence in Nepali movies, Manisha Koirala has recently started acting in a Nepali movie named Dharma. The movie originally named â€˜Rajniti’ was renamed â€˜Dharma’ to suit the character of Manisha.
Manisha had enjoyed the post of the top actress in Bollywood, the Indian movie capital, for some time in the past. But, these days new actresses have taken over and she doesn’t have much projects in hand. That was one of the reason she agreed to act in the Nepali movie. Nepali movie industry is not as advanced as Bollywood and the talent in the industry is not of that of the quality Manisha is used to.
