Friends, family keeps railing Manisha in hospital

One of the noted Bollywood actress Manisha Koirala recently diagnosed with cancer and she is undergoing treatment at Jaslok hospital in Mumbai. No sooner the news of Manish’s health spread out, Manisha’s old Bollywood friend rallied around ail Manisha.

Doctors refuse to divulge the details of her illness except that she is being treated by onco-surgeon Dr Suresh Advani. "Manisha is responding well to the treatment and she has been referred for a few tests today. Unless we review the results, the exact nature of her illness cannot be known. And commenting about it till then will be mere speculation," said Krishnakant Dasyam, head of marketing and spokesperson for Jaslok hospital.

Dasyam said that Manisha requested to keep the details of her illness under wrap. "So, even if the test results arrive, we will have to seek her permission before we can communicate the nature of her ailment to the public," Dasyam added.

Her health scare brought her family to her side. "Her brother was at the hospital all day. One of her family members will stay with her all night. She is weak but she is okay. She had four visitors today in her suite, all of them were her immediate family members," said a hospital source.

Manisha's friends are optimistic that Manisha will win the battle and emerged victorious. "Woh manage kar legi biru," said one of her oldest pals, Jackie Shroff. "She is not a quitter. She has battled so much more in her life that a mere illness won't be able to defeat her." Ram Gopal Varma, one of Manisha's closest colleagues, spoke to TOI twice, just to enquire about her. "I have not been able to communicate with her... I've been getting these text messages about her health that got me very worried," said RGV.

Manisha’s neighbor and her close friend Gulshan Grover said, "She is a strong girl and I hope she will be able to win this battle just as she had won the others," he said.
