Manisha Koirala has spoken up for female power by encouraging Bollywood actresses to take risks in their movies choices.
The ‘Bombay’ (1995) actress told PTI,��”Actresses should not just stick to song and dance, because you are an actor and you have to perform. They should not be afraid or shy away from taking risk or ask for meatier roles”.
Koirala, famed for taking on author backed roles in films such as ‘Dil Se’ (1998) and ‘Khamoshi: The Musical’ (1996), felt taking risks early on in her career led to her being taken seriously as as actor. ���I just wanted to make a mark as a serious actor which by the grace of god I have fairly achieved” she continued.
The actress now sees plentiful opportunities for the current breed of actresses to broaden their repertoire of films and stretch their acting skills as the audience becomes more open to different genres. She said,�ʉ��Audience is ready for all kind of cinema. There is no longer a things called parallel cinema, it is good cinema or bad cinema.�
The actress will soon be seen again in upcoming film ‘Dear Maya’ and plans to grace our screens once a year with her acting prowess.
