Manisha Koirala Fights Cancer With Courage And Wants To Act Again

Manisha Koirala, who was earlier diagnosed with ovarian cancer and has now recovered, says there is always a fear the disease may recur but she believes in being positive in life.

“Cancer is a huge challenge, a huge test some of us survive and some don’t due to various reasons. There is lot of stigma attached to cancer, you lose all hope, your family is also living in a negative environment and you feel there is a dead end. But I was fortunate to have people around me who helped me and were there for me emotionally,” stated a very confident Manisha.

Manisha Koirala, was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in the year 2012, a type of cancer that is difficult to diagnose and may often be detected late as it does not have typical symptoms.

“I did not take care of my health earlier. I was not looking after myself. Cancer made me realise the fact that health is important, eating right is important, and exercising is required. There is a fear that Cancer can come back anytime. But one must be positive,” Manisha told reporters, at the launch of Prevention Magazine.

The actress plans to do something for those suffering from the disease.

“Cancer is not the death sentence, there is hope. Science has changed by leaps and bounds. Today we are able to deal with the treatment. I want to raise hope for people who don’t have hope, who don’t have access, resources. I will do something through a certain platform, in certain ways. I want to repay back to the needy,” she said.

Manisha said that people like Subrata Roy, Shatrughan Sinha, Tabu and Gulshan Grover enquired about her welfare during the time she was undergoing her treatment.

Manisha Koirala is looking forward to betting back to acting and stated, “I want to see myself on screen. I want to be back. I do get offers. I get roles like important one’s in the film but I am there for two scenes or so, something that I would not want to take up. I am waiting for a good director and a good role,”

Here’s wishing Manisha Koirala all the strength, good health and a disease free existence. We do hope that she has a healthy life ahead.
