Manisha Koirala

After a long hiatus from the big screen following her battle with cancer, Manisha Koirala is back to the movies. She will be seen in one of the most ambitious projects of 2018 – Sanjay Dutt‘s biopic, starring Ranbir Kapoor in the titular role & being helmed by Rajkumar Hirani.

Manisha will make a special appearance in the film as Nargis Dutt. She told an entertainment portal:

I did express my concern to him but he told me not to worry about it. Mine is a special appearance as the film is not about Nargis ji, it is about Sanjay Dutt. I can’t talk much about the project. I have watched Nargis Dutt ji’s films and we have done the look test. We have done the clothes, the hair, the make-up and just about everything.

Recently, pictures of her in the get-up of Nargis started doing the rounds and we were quit amazed at the stark resemblance.

Check out her almost perfect imitation of the late actress:

Ranbir got into the skin of his character – perfecting Dutt’s body language, his mannerisms and sweated it out in the gym to get his bulky look. The film also stars Sonam Kapoor, Anushka Sharma, Dia Mirza and Vicky Kaushal in important roles.
