Manisha Koirala had immense performance pressure during ‘Dear Maya’
Actress Manisha Koirala marks her comeback to films with the slice-of-life movie ‘Dear Maya’ and she is seen in a de-glam avatar. One must be thinking as to how would it be for the actress to face the cameras after such a long time. So, as we got in an exclusive conversation with the actress, we asked her if she felt any sort of performance pressure as it has been a long time since she faced the cameras.
She replied, “Of course, I got goosebumps and butterflies in my stomach in my first ever shot. Even after so many years and doing so many movies, I do get nervous. I had literally asked Sunaina to do a couple of rehearsals and I just wanted to do it right. So, yeah I still get nervous.” But, if you see the trailer, you will not notice an ounce of nervousness on her face, as she essays the role of a lonely woman, Maya Devi.
