Cancer-free Manisha Koirala back in India

Mumbai: Actress Manisha Koirala returned to Mumbai Wednesday evening after spending over six months in New York for treatment of ovarian cancer. She has returned cancer-free, looking as "gorgeous" as ever.

"Manisha has landed in India and she is absolutely fine now. She is looking as gorgeous as she was before," Subroto Ghosh, Manisha`s manager, told reporters.

She went straight to her residence in Andheri, said Ghosh.

When doctors announced that she had overcome the disease successfully, she had called it her "rebirth".

The 42-year-old, who carved her own niche in the Hindi film industry with films like "Bombay", "1942: A Love Story" and "Dil Se", was initially admitted to Mumbai`s Jaslok Hospital Nov 28 last year. She later flew down to the US for further treatment.
