Manisha Koirala’s loss is Antara Mali’s gain
Manisha Koirala’s filmi career is definitely on a dwindle these days but definitely the actress is in no mood to settle down for cameos or blonk-n-miss appearances. So, when she was offered a cameo in Amol Palekar’s first venture in English, the actress refused the role with a heavy heart. Amol is a director of great caliber and has extracted exceptional performances from his female actors including Deepti Naval in Ankahee, Anita Kanwar in Thodasa Roomani Ho Jayen and Rani Mukherjee in Paheli. So, it was not easy for Manisha to refuse the offer.
“I’d have loved to work with Amolji. It was an interesting character, that of a Buddhist monk. I’d have given my right arm to play the role, if only I had at least two scenes …achcha chalo, only one meaty scene. I’ve never believed in measuring my roles in terms of playing time. Lekin kuch to hona chahiye..,” said Manisha with a heavy heart adding, “It broke my heart because I’m heavily into Buddhism. And I want to work with Amolji.”
The role has now gone to Antara Mali who also happily shaves off her tresses to play the monk.
