Manisha Koirala and Vivek Mushran

With her amazing appearance and flawless acting abilities in Subhash Ghai's Saudagar, Manisha Koirala rose to fame. Her relationship with co-star Vivek Mushran garnered headlines in addition to her performance.

Manisha Koirala and Nana Patekar

In the early 1990s, Manisha Koirala and Nana Patekar's Jodi became one of the most commercially successful couples. The duo collaborated on the critically acclaimed Movies Agnisakshi and Khamoshi: The Musical. Their off-screen affair was just as romantic as their on-screen one.

The duo was first avoiding the rumours and never came out in public because Nana Patekar was a married man and significantly older than Manisha. However, Manisha and Nana eventually relaxed and were seen leaving each other's homes at the early hours without being afraid of anyone.

Despite being married Nana's wife was not living with Nana at that time. It was also claimed that a jealous Manisha once confronted Nana and Ayesha Jhulka after discovering them in an intimate setting. But Nana was able to persuade her and the pair moved on.

But Nana's decision to reject Koirala's proposal was the final straw. Manisha Koirala and Patekar eventually separated ways after she understood that he would not leave his wife for her. Manisha reportedly fell into a depressive mood after her breakup with him.

Even though it is still unknown what transpired between the pair to cause them to go different paths Manisha had said the following immediately after the split: I believe the timing was off. Instead of getting married because my biological clock is running out I want to do it for the right reasons. I support the institution of marriage and desire a long-lasting union.

In 2010 Manisha Koirala married Samrat Dahal a business mogul who was seven years her junior and was originally from Nepal. The fast secret wedding caught everyone off guard.

Manisha stated that they met on Facebook and fell in love right away when people questioned her about whether or not this was an arranged marriage. However soon after they got married problems began to appear in their idyllic world and Manisha declared Samrat to be her greatest adversary.

Manisha Koirala and Samrat Dahal filed for divorce in 2012. Manisha Koirala once reflected on what went wrong in their relationship by saying: I had a romantic vision of marriage.

It is best to end a poor relationship if you are in one. There isn't any resentment. I fully accept the blame for rushing into getting married before realizing I wasn't cut out for it. No one else is at fault I am the one at fault.

Send Your Mother A Video Message From Kabir Bedi

Actor From Manisha Koirala Starrer Movie Yalgaar

Kabir Bedi in Yalgaar


Do you want to surprise your mom on her birthday but don't know how? Present your mother with the greatest gift ever - a video card featuring the charismatic Bollywood actor Kabir Bedi, who was in the 1992 action-crime blockbuster Yalgaar alongside Manisha Koirala. Her birthday, Mother's Day, or any other occasion calls for this kind of present.


Manisha Koirala's life has been one of the most controversial ones in Bollywood due to the fact that she is a member of the Nepali political dynasty. There are many controversies about this stunning actress who became well-known thanks to the song Ek ladki ko dekha to aisa laga that are still unknown.

Manisha Koirala and Nepal Map

Actress Manisha Koirala posted a controversial new map of Nepal which India has criticized for its unjustified cartographic assertion. Everything went to hell when the actor forwarded the tweet from Nepal's foreign minister Pradeep Gyawali. Manisha has received harsh criticism for her endorsement of the 'illegal' map of Nepal despite the fact that she has been working in India for years.

Manisha Koirala and Ek Chotisi Love Story

In 2002 Manisha accused Shashilal Nair the director of the movie Ek Chotisi Love Story of using Koirala's body double to shoot some love scenes and of maligning her by having another actress assume obscene poses without Manisha's consent. Since the double's body did not resemble Nair's Koirala insisted that these scenes be cut from the movie and that Nair reshoot them.

The Pet Case

Another controversy erupted in February 2006 as a result of rallies organized by groups of individuals in response to media reports that stated Koirala had named her pet dog after a respected Muslim figure. To avoid any issues police security was given to Manisha Koirala. The charges persisted in the days that followed. The police said the actress had no pet at all and Manisha Koirala refused the allegations.

Manisha Koirala and Aishwarya Rai fight

According to a source from Filmibeat, an interview in the December 1999 issue of Showtime Magazine provided Aishwarya's perspective on the events. I felt Bombay in Tamil was great when I first saw it. On April 1st after I had arrived in Bombay Rajeev called me.

I was telling him how wonderful Manisha was in the movie and that I intended to send her a flower as a gesture of support. He chuckled at me at that point and inquired me whether I had been reading the articles. He told me that Manisha had claimed to have found some letters that Rajeev had written to me in a romantic manner.

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan went on to say that the entire Manisha Koirala incident had a terrible impact on her and caused her to cry for days. I never desired to be associated with any certain name.

However, the media has emphasized it so much in recent years that when someone thinks of me they immediately think of Manisha and vice versa. Years have passed since that incident but she continues to bring it up. Naturally, this implies that there is more going on here than just a broken relationship Aishwarya stated.

Net Worth

Manisha Koirala’s total net worth is estimated at $11.5 million or 91 crores in Indian Rupees. Brand endorsements and acting are the two primary sources of Manisha Koirala. Manisha Koirala demands between 4 and 5 crores for each film. Manisha Koirala has a large collection of luxury vehicles including an Audi Q7 and a Range Rover.
