Mumbai: Bollywood actress Manisha Koirala celebrates her birthday yesterday. The actress is currently the most searched out celebrity over the internet as an explicit film is released. Seems like the girl got the wrong gift!

Manisha Koirala (born on August 16, 1970 in Kathmandu, Nepal), is a Nepali actress who works in Indian films, as well as a UNFPA Goodwill Ambassador and social activist. Koirala has primarily worked in Hindi cinema, though she has appeared in a considerable number of Tamil films as well. She is also an accomplished Bharatnatyam and Manipuri dancer.

Making her acting debut in Nepali movie Pheri Bhetaula (1989), Koirala made her acting debut in Bollywood with Subhash Ghai’s top-grossing drama Saudagar (1991). She went on to collaborate with some of the most prominent Indian filmmakers of her times, and throughout the 1990s, was one of the best-known actresses in India, mostly recognised for her critically acclaimed performances.

Noted for her portrayals of strong dramatic characters, Koirala mostly ventured into serious and realistic cinema. Although box office collections of her films have varied considerably, critics have noted that her niche as an actor remains unharmed irrespective of box office collections.

Manisha Koirala was born into the politically prominent Hindu Koirala family; Her grandfather Bishweshwar Prasad Koirala was the Prime Minister of Nepal during the late 50s-early 60s, as well as two of her great grand uncles, Girija Prasad Koirala and MP Koirala. She studied at Army Public School, Dhaula Kuan, New Delhi and Vasant Kanya Mahavidhyalaya (VKM) Varanasi. She lived with her grandmother in Varanasi during her studies. Her ambition was to be a doctor, but a modelling stint opened a career path into Bollywood.

Her brother Siddharth Koirala is also an actor, and collaborated with her once in the film Anwar.

In 2004, she returned from New York after receiving a diploma in filmmaking. She became a member of an independent documentary filmmaker’s society.

Her upcoming movies are ‘Rann’ directed by RGV, ‘Chehre’ directed by Rohit Kaushik, ‘Tanman.com’ directed by Pradeep Chanda and ‘Do Paise Ki Dhoop, Char Aane Ki Baarish’ directed by Deepti Naval.

Gorkha Times Wishes her Many Many Happy Returns Of The Day on behalf of all her fans.
