Actress Manisha Koirala, who has been diagnosed with ovarian cancer, had to undergo surgery in New York Thursday, but it has now been postponed to Dec 10.
"The surgery was supposed to happen today (Thursday), but after conducting certain tests, the doctors have decided to postponed it to Monday (Dec 10)," Subroto Ghosh, Manisha's manager, told IANS.
Speculation swirled about her health last week after she was hospitalised in Mumbai Nov 28. The rumours about her cancer are now confirmed.
The actress, who has worked in critically acclaimed films like "Dil Se" and "1942: A Love Story", made her debut with "Saudagar" in 1991. She recently made a comeback with Ram Gopal Varma's "Bhoot Returns". In a post on her Facebook page Thursday, Manisha, 42, admits she was shocked to know about her illness, but she is confident all will be well soon.
"Dear friends, thank you for all your wishes. I am in good place and in good hands. With all your love and prayers I am sure I'll recover. It was shocking to know, but then life is full of surprises," Manisha wrote.
"One must deal with it and move on with faith and dignity. Whatever is the outcome, it is for best. I know that.
So people, don't worry! I have had a beautiful life so far and I know, whatever will happen will all be good. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your prayers... love, M Koirala," she added.
