From Nepal to Mumbai and from Hopes to Dreams. A life worth living for…
Manisha Koirala’s family is from Kathmandu, Nepal. The Koirala family has well-established prowess in politics. Some might even say that the Koirala’s were the rulers of Nepal in the 80’s and 90’s. Her father, Prakash Koirala is the former Minister of Environment, Nepal. Manisha’s grandfather, Bishweshwar Prasad Koirala, was the Prime Minister of Nepal during the late 1950’s and 1960’s, as were two of her great-uncles, Girija Prasad Koirala and Matrika Prasad Koirala. Despite having such a powerful political background in Nepal, the Koirala children never pursued politics. Manisha’s brother Siddharth Koirala is also an actor. Manisha spent her early life in India at her maternal grandmother’s house in Varanasi. She later moved to Mumbai to pursue a career in acting. She had no political aspirations what-so-ever.
She was never a Princess. She was always a Queen. She could handle things on her Own!
Manisha completed her education in Varanasi while living away from her family with her maternal grandmother. She studied at Vasant Kanya Mahavidyalaya until Class X. Later on, she moved to Delhi to pursue her dream of becoming a doctor. She studied at the Army Public School (APS) of Dhaula Kuan, New Delhi campus. Manisha often says that India isn’t her second home, it’s her only home. It molded her into becoming a self-dependent, strong and confident woman. Having inclination towards arts and theater, Manisha went on to pursue a diploma in filmmaking from the New York University.
We see a handful of stars using their influence for social causes. Manisha is definitely amongst them!
Manisha was hugely involved in the relief operation after the devastating earthquake in Nepal in 2015. She has been participating in a variety of social causes for many years. She is at the forefront when it comes to promoting gender equality and cancer awareness. Koirala was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 2012 and she had to take a break from her acting career. She successfully recovered from cancer in 2015. She then returned to acting immediately with the psychological thriller Chehere. Manisha Koirala was also the Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations Population Fund in 1999 and 2015.
Manisha has very Bad Luck when it comes to Relationships
Manisha has never had a successful relationship. She was married to the business tycoon of Nepal, Samrat Dahal. Her marriage to Dahal had left the world shocked due to the age difference between them. Koirala was almost seven years younger to Dahal when they got married. They had a nasty divorce two years later when Manisha posted on her Facebook saying “My husband has become my worst enemy!” Manisha’s dreams of having children were crushed.
Before her marriage with Samrat Dahal, Maisha was in a relationship with the Australian ambassador to Nepal, Crispin Conroy. Due to commitment issues, Koirala canceled their engagement.
The Battle with Cancer!
Manisha was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 2012. She went to the US for the surgery and chemotherapy. Despite the struggle, Manisha never lost contact with her fans. She was well connected with all of them through Twitter and Facebook. After a long-lasting battle of almost three years, Manisha tweeted that she had completely recovered from cancer. When asked about her future plans Manisha said, “All I want to do from now onwards is to be useful to people who could need a little advice.” It was the beginning of her career as a motivational speaker.
