Manisha Koirala to make a comeback in Bollywood

Mumbai: 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 on Thursday 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.
