Manisha Plays Sex worker

Manisha Koirala definitely knows that her comeback to the silver screen in Bollywood can be well-done only if she does a challenging role! So, no wonder she took up the role of a sex worker in noted actress Deepti Naval's directorial venture Do Paise Ki Dhoop Char Aane Ki Baarish, after a short gap, followed by her marriage with Nepali businessman Samrat Dahal at the age of 40.

Said to be inspired by real life incidents, the film has Rajit Kapur and New York-based Sanaj Naval in lead roles, besides Manisha. It deals with the bonding between three unlikely and unusual persons: a struggling gay lyricist, an ageing prostitute and her physically challenged 12-year-old son.

Shot in Mumbai's rainy season by Bollywood's finest cinematographer Kiran Deohans, the film has music composed by Sandesh Shandilya for lyrics penned by Gulzar.

Manisha is currently making a comeback in Tamil as Dhanush’s arrogant mother-in-law in Maapillai. She recently made her debut in Malayalam with Shyamprasad's much-acclaimed Electra starring Nayantara.
