Movies are my lifeline, cannot think of quitting the industry: Manisha Koirala


Manisha-KoiralaBollywood actress Manisha Koirala said films are her lifeline and it is difficult for her to think of a life without movies.

When asked whether she was preparing to retire from films and stepping towards a life of spirituality and renunciation, Koirala who is here to attend a religious programme, said, “Movies are my lifeline.”

“I cannot think of going away from films. Just a day before coming here I signed two films. One by Rajkumar Santoshi and another by a Tamil film-maker,” she said.

Clad in saffron like a sadhvi and sitting on a chariot as part of a shobhayatra, the actress said it was too early to say she was preparing to embrace a life of renunciation.

“Though coming to Haridwar is always a spiritually elevating experience, I think I am not ready yet to embrace a life of renunciation which is difficult. I may do so when the time comes but not now,” she said when asked whether her saffron attire was an indication that she was moving towards a life of spirituality.
