Manisha Marzara to be seen in Raj Mukherjee's next

Manisha Marzara is the new Methodist in town, as they call her. A couple of films old actress is just as fresh and excited as she was when she came to Mumbai 8 years ago from Chandigarh. Manisha was a fashion student who often got the chance to style for ad shoots and big Bollywood projects. That is when she knew that fashion was not all that she was meant to do.

Manisha, being a theatre student, took a quick settling in the shoes of an actress when she came to Mumbai. Her first six months in the city landed her a TV serial with Balaji. The following year she was a part of two festival films, Munia and Live @ 5. She continued with bagging TV shows with DD National and Sony. Recalling her early days, Manisha shares, “I was passionate and ready to take everything head-on, but to be honest, I didn't know much back then. I was young. Today, I look back and really wonder how I did what all I did back then - television, short films, shoots. It just happened to me.”
