Manisha Koirala to make a comeback in Bollywood

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.
