Manisha Koirala, the royal pedigree from Nepal, is one of the rare actresses willing to expose all of her soul to deliver the role. Her juxtaposition of fragility and strength is very attractive. Manisha was launched by Subhash Ghai in his multi starrer film Saudagar. She's got the charm, looks and acting talents too that she attracted the attention of the likes of Ram Gopal Verma and Maniratnam who offered her their projects so confidant of her acting capabilities.
Her uncle was the Prime Minister of Nepal. Her grandfather B.P. Koirala was Prime Minister of Nepal during the late 50s-early 60s. Two of her grandfather's brothers were also prime minister of Nepal: Girija Prasad Koirala (different times during the 90s and M.P. Koirala (early 50s). Engaged to Christpin Conroy, the Australian ambassador to Nepal (2001). She is an accomplished Bharatnatyam and Manipuri dancer.
After the success of Mani Ratnam's 'Bombay' and '1942-a love story' Manisha was in limelight and started gaining fame and collecting fans to her credit. She acted in a few films in South where she won a pretty audience too. Sanjay Bhansali's Khamoshi was rejected by the audience, but she caught the critics eyes once again and won a critics award. Today she's one of the hottest actresses in bollywood and enjoying her filmi life with all the projects in hand striving to show the best in her.
She couldn't have expected much from the likes of 'First Love Letter' (1991), 'Yalgaar' (1992), 'Dhanwaan' (1993) in any case.
Manisha Koirala is a wonderful personality having got a love for the human beings and pet animals that she reflects these qualities in real life frequently participating in activities of charity organisations and giving contributions at times.
