Manisha says she now understand the importance of life. "I think cancer helps to transform a person... It affected me so much that it enabled me to grow, appreciate life and honour my body," Manisha said.
Manisha had no clue about the disease until she felt very weak and went to a hospital in Kathmandu with her brother.
"I was diagnosed with cancer in Kathmadu. I immediately flew down to India and got admitted in a prestigious hospital in Mumbai.
"Since the surgery looked very complicated, I then flew to the US for it. I did not face any problem there. Doctors in the US not only focus on the treatment part of it but also on psychological aspects. They are much ahead in taking care of a patient," she said.
Post her cancer struggle, the actress appeared in two films -- Ram Gopal Varma's 'Bhoot Returns' and psychological thriller 'Chehere: A Modern Day Classic' along with Jackie Shroff.
"I had been through a long period of introspection after the disease. I understood that I should always follow my heart and stick to the path which gives me joy and strength”, Manisha added.
