Manisha Koirala autobiography
The actress was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 2012 and has been flown to the US for treatment. She is said to be penning an autobiography where she will be putting her fight against cancer on paper. She wrote on her Facebook page, “Doing my best and leaving the rest to Bhagwan (GOD). I noticed, surrendering gives peace. Learning a lot through this process…. actually a lot of my spiritual learnings are no more a concept, but now all are being experienced… actualised.” She also added, “Is it a curse, or by default a wish come true? Would be writing my thoughts on this process of discovery in my autobiography. I think I am ready now for it. There is lot to achieve.”
