Mumbai, Mar 30 : 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.
