It was on 19th June this year when Manisha Koirala got married to businessman Samrat Dahal. Now after exactly three months of an extended honeymooning period, she would be returning to the Bollywood scene. On 18th September, she would be attending the New York premier of her upcoming film and plans are already being put together to ensure a warm welcome.

Confirms film maker Onir, "Yes, Manisha has given her nod for the world premiere of I AM. She shot for her part before her marriage and ensured that all her commitments were fulfilled. Now that we are looking at taking the film globally, she is going out of her way in supporting the event."

The event is called Engendered which is a transnational arts and human rights festival that brings together the best in contemporary South Asian cinema, visual arts and performance to explore the complex realities of gender and sexuality in modern South Asia, especially at the intersection of ritual and religion.

An industry observer adds, "In any case, for Manisha too, this is a good platform to be back in circulation. Her last film EK SECOND... JO ZINDAGI BADAL DE? went totally unnoticed while it has been close to a decade since she last had a successful film to her name. After COMPANY (2002), where she was seen in a brief role, none of her films have worked. In fact she has had 15 odd flops in a row. She can well be expected to support a film that gets her the kind of critical appreciation that she deserves."

For the event, Manisha Koirala would be joined by Juhi Chawla, Rahul Bose, Sanjay Suri, Purab Kohli, Arjun Mathur and director Onir.

Adds Onir, "This is Manisha's first Bollywood activity after her marriage and I couldn't have been happier. When I talk to her, I can sense that she is gleaming. She is going through the happiest phase of her life. I know for sure that she wants the film to work for the entire team. It is no nice of her to be joining us straight after her honeymoon. I am looking forward to seeing her again this month. It would certainly be a great reunion."

Well, one hopes Manisha feels likewise too!
