New Delhi- Actress Manisha Koirala, who is on her way to recovery after a successful cancer surgery in New York, is fighting a lonely battle, as her Bollywood friends and co-actors have refused to pay heed to her health or even give a courtesy call.
Manisha has been pouring her angst on the social networking site through which she interacts with her fans and well wishers. “How slowly, shadows of my past friendships are becoming distant dream… Did I have bunch of friends with whom there were promises of life time? Disappointed, yes I am… but then life fills you with new hope, new friends… Hoping this time round it would be rooted in deep values rather than just crazy, fun times!!” Manisha wrote on Facebook.
The actress underwent a surgery in December after being diagnosed with ovarian cancer. She is upset that her close friends from the industry did not call her to check about her illness.
Veteran actress and filmmaker Deepti Naval has flown down to the US to give her some company. In 2009, Manisha worked in Deepti’s debut directorial Do Paise Ki Dhoop, Chaar Aane Ki Baarish. Manisha has been advised complete rest, but she is pursuing her hobbies.
“Ok now, I m Seriously missing my painting classes.. shall turn big dining room into a studio.. there are things to do once I m back home.. as of now, learning French through Internet seems exciting, provided I get smooth sailing of treatment.. cross fingers (sic),” she wrote in another update.
Once she gets a nod from the doctors, Manisha plans to return to Mumbai and hopes to re-start her career.
