One of the most iconic actresses of the 90s, Manisha Koirala is making her comeback to the film industry with a bang. Talking about her forthcoming film ‘Dear Maya’, she revealed how nervous she was.
Reported in the Times Of India, when Koirala was asked at the trailer launch of ‘Dear Maya’, if she found being in front of the camera quite daunting, she said, “Absolutely. No matter how many times we do it, every time during the first day and the first film, my stomach knots and I get nervous.” Further adding, “I hope during the whole process of doing the movie my director didn’t get to know I was nervous.”
For the ‘Khamoshi’ (1996) actress who has many blockbuster films against her name, said she felt unsure about whether she had shot her scene correctly or not. “Honestly, I was very nervous. I wasn’t sure whether I was doing it right or wrong… A lot has changed in cinema, so I had to adjust to all that. Till the end of the shooting, I was nervous.”
Feeling grateful for landing such a film, Koirala shared how she’s been waiting for the right script which would be a performance-orientated film. “As an actor, I’ve done so many movies, but we are constantly starving to get good roles, which are performance- oriented. It’s a new area for an actor to venture into. Whenever there is an opportunity like that, I want to grab it…”
‘Dear Maya’ is about two sisters who prank a local woman (Maya) with secret love letters from an admirer, but this goes terribly wrong, when the woman goes missing. Directed by Imtiaz Ali and Sunaina Bhatnagar, the film is slated to release on the 2nd June.
