Entertainment:Censor Board refuses to expedite certification process of 'Padmavati'
At 47, Manisha Koirala is looking to make a fresh new start. Having survived cancer, the actress is now making a comeback to films. While her last film, Dear Maya, was a box-office dud, her latest, Lust Stories, has got a lot of people talking. But none of that compares to how she has stunned people in the trailer of Sanju, where she plays Nargis Dutt. She almost refused the film but was taken in by director Rajkumar Hirani’s simplicity. It seems unlikely that someone might even consider passing an opportunity to work with director Rajkumar Hirani, but Manisha tells The Woods that she had valid reasons. Excerpts.
The Woods:What were your thoughts when Rajkumar Hirani approached you? Manisha Koirala: I was unsure if I should do it. First, I was supposed to play mother to Ranbir, who is just 10 years younger than me. Plus, I was supposed to portray Nargisji, whose memory is still fresh in a lot of minds. Another concern was that both of us had a history with health problems. I was not sure whether I have enough guts to revive that memory… whether I wanted to live that. So, I was very hesitant. I actually thought I would say no. But when I met him (Hirani), I realised I should work with him. He is just a good person. I am so glad I did it.
And working with Ranbir? Ranbir is such a wonderful actor. I have always enjoyed working with good performers, and working with him was a joy altogether. He is a brilliant actor. I feel he is the finest actor of this generation or the one before. Including the previous generation? You have worked with his father too (Anmol, 1993). Who is a better actor? I hope people don’t mind this, but I got to be honest. Rishiji is a very good actor. His timing, dance, everything is phenomenal. No question. But, hands down, it is Ranbir Kapoor. Ranbir for me, honestly speaking, I have not seen that kind of work before. He is a superior actor.
