Samrat is a closed chapter: Manisha Koirala


By Hindustan Times

Actor Manisha Koirala is at “peace with herself” after her marital split. She and her husband of two years, Nepalese businessman Samrat Dahal, have gone their separate ways. And, she doesn’t want to dig into her past.

“That chapter is over. Let’s not talk about that,” says the 42-year-old, who was in the Capital to promote her upcoming film, Bhoot Returns.

She married Dahal in 2010 and hinted at turbulence in the relationship within just five months of the wedding, when she posted on Facebook that she was contemplating divorce. The couple separated earlier this year. The actor is not known to be lucky in love, as before her wedding to Dahal, she had two failed relationships. But that hasn’t deterred her spirit. “My view on love has not changed.

It’s beautiful. I’m not a bitter person now. Love is a very strong emotion but there shouldn’t be any ownership if that is humanly possible,” she says. We ask if that’s the reason there has been so much turmoil in her love life and she says, “No. Lack of love is the turmoil.”

Is she ready for another relationship? “Right now, I’m focussing on my work. Let's see when it comes along.”
