Poster Girl Of Elegance Manisha Koirala

February 16, 2023 14:42 IST

Manisha Koirala carries herself with the aplomb of the aristocrat she is.

The charming actor, who belongs to a politically prominent Nepalese family, after studying in Delhi and Varanasi planned on becoming a doctor. But life often deals you strange cards -- or, in this case, intriguing saudas (bargains) -- and she ended up making her Bollywood debut in Subhash Ghai's Saudagar.

More than 30 years later, she will now be seen as Yashu in the Kartik Aaryan-Kriti Sanon-starrer Shehzada, which releases on February 17.

She might be a 90s babe, but her fashion game is always au courant and she treats her fans to many a timeless moment of fashion in pakka aristocratic style.

'Keep a green tree in your heart and perhaps the singing bird will come,' she writes sharing a quote from American writer Lois Lowry. Wishing lots of choon choon karti sona chidiya in your life, Manisha.

Those red roses are a final majestic touch.

The soft, cool-toned colour should be reserved for her.
Waiting to see the haughty style she will bring to her Yashu avatar.
