Bol­ly­wood ac­tor Man­isha Koirala (left), who was di­ag­nosed with ovar­ian can­cer in 2012 and op­er­ated soon af­ter, fol­lowed by chemo­ther­apy in New York, says: “I’ll soon com­plete five years of can­cer-free life, which I will cel­e­brate.”

At­tend­ing an event that aimed to spread aware­ness about how to fight dis­eases with Yoga, Man­isha said: “God has been kind to me. I had great doc­tors, teach­ers and fam­ily sup­port, so ev­ery­thing worked well.”

The ac­tor, who made her Bol­ly­wood de­but with film­maker Sub­hash Ghai’s Sauda­gar (1991), was last seen in Che­here: A Modern Day Clas­sic in 2015.

Her next film is the biopic on San­jay Dutt. Man­isha hopes that she does jus­tice to her role of Dutt’s mother, iconic ac­tor Nar­gis Dutt. “The whole film is be­tween a fa­ther and son, I have a small role and I hope I do jus­tice to that.”

The film — that will have ac­tor Ran­bir Kapoor play­ing San­jay — also stars Dia Mirza, Anushka Sharma, Sonam Kapoor and Vicky Kaushal in piv­otal roles.

Shift­ing topic to fit­ness and how in­cor­po­rat­ing Yoga in one’s daily life con­trib­utes to over­all well­ness, the 46-year-old ac­tor added: “It’s ex­tremely im­por­tant to give your 100 per cent, be it stud­ies, work or any pro­fes­sion and to achieve that so­lid­ity, we need to do yoga.”
