Her 40s have been eventful and enlightening. Actress Manisha Koirala, a cancer survivor, says contrary to common perception that middle-aged female actors get less work in Bollywood, she feels liberated more than ever.
"I think I am more liberated as an artist in my late 40s. I was having a conversation with Shabana Azmiji where she was saying, 'As an actress and as a woman, we always want to look good. How did you become so carefree?' I think the greedy actor in me takes over at times.
"Being a woman, I want to look pretty in every phase of my life… but I also love acting. If I have to sacrifice my vanity for a character that I am excited to play, I am ready," Manisha, 47, told IANS in an interview.
Having said that, Manisha pointed out that tomorrow if she is offered a role that demands glamour, she will again work on her looks.
"Basically, my priority is the character first. I have done my share of looking glamorous on-screen in many films," said the actress, who mesmerised audiences with her performance in 1942: A Love Story.
Of late, Manisha has fetched praise for her performance in Rajkumar Hirani's Sanju - in which she has played the iconic Nargis Dutt - and in the web film Lust Stories.
On Sanju, Manisha said: "I was quite nervous about how people will receive me in the film where I am playing the role of such an icon as Nargis Dutt. I was more worried because I knew how great the rest of the actors were in the film. They were brilliant and the worry was whether people would notice my performance among those great performances.
"I am still one of those actresses who need people's appreciation to know that I have done the right thing.
Even after spending a substantial time in the entertainment business, before the release of a film, I am nervous," laughed the Khamoshi actress, adding that such nervousness also occurs on the first day of the shoot.
