In her memoir, ’Healed: How Cancer Gave Me a New Life’, actor Manisha Koirala has poured her heart out and written about how cancer gave her life a new meaning. She wrote, “It has taken a lot of courage to confront and relive my experiences. But I needed to do so in order to become a true storyteller for the readers’ sake as well as my own.”
The actress turned alcoholic and her poor lifestyle was one of the major reasons for her deteriorating health. She says if not cancer then some other disease would have made her body its home. “The poor lifestyle I had been leading made my body susceptible to diseases. Had it not been cancer, some other malady would have struck me. In hindsight, on a dark, lonely night, I still wonder what it could have been and whether it would have been better or worse,” writes Manisha.

According to her, cancer gave her life a new meaning, “I think cancer came into my life as a gift. My vision is sharper, my mind clearer, my perspective realigned. I have succeeded in transforming my passive-aggressive anger and anxiety into more peaceful expressions.”
Manisha Koirala made a comeback with the film ’Sanju’ in 2018. She aced the role of Sanjay Dutt’s mother and veteran actress Nargis Dutt.
