She studied at Army Public School, Dhaula Kuan, New Delhiand Vasant Kanya Mahavidhyalaya (VKM) Varanasi. She lived with hergrandmother in Varanasi during her studies. Her ambition was to be a doctor, but a modelling stint opened a career path into Bollywood.
In 2004, she returned from New York after receiving a diploma in filmmaking. She became a member of an independent documentary filmmaker's society.

Career:
Her first film was Pheri Bhetaula (We shall meet again), a Nepali movie released in early 1989. Her first Hindi movie was Subhash Ghai's Saudagar in 1991. The film proved to be a good beginning, as it was the biggest hit of the year.
She starred in a number of unsuccessful films during 1992-1993 until Vidhu Vinod Chopra's love saga 1942: A Love Story (1994) and Mani Ratnam's Tamil drama Bombay (1995) came out.67 Her performance in the latter was particularly appreciated and won her the Filmfare Critics Award for Best Performance. She was also seen in more commercial films, such as Mansoor Khan's romantic musical Akele Hum Akele Tum (1995) opposite Aamir Khan.Her role of Kiran, an ignored wife who leaves her husband and child inorder to fulfill her singing talent and subsequently becomes a popularstar, earned her a Filmfare nomination for Best Actress.

Koirala had a particularly successful year in 1996. She received positive reviews for her performance in the drama Agni Sakshi,8 where she played the role of a battered wife on the run from her mentally sick husband, played by Nana Patekar. The film became one of the biggest hits of that year at the Indian box office. Later that year, she acted in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's directorial debut, Khamoshi: The Musical. The film saw her playing the role of Annie, a caring daughter to deaf parents. Her performance was highly acclaimed,and won her a second consecutive Filmfare Best Performer Award, as well as a Star Screen Award for Best Actress. One critic from Channel 4wrote, "Koirala... demonstrates the full range of her acting ability,rather than playing against it as she has had to do in more traditionalfilms. The scene where she shouts at her father through the door,screaming and using sign language even though she knows he can neithersee nor hear her, is extremely powerful"

One year later in 1997, she played the leading role alongside Kajol and Bobby Deol in the thriller Gupt: The Hidden Truth. The film became one of the biggest hits of the year.She went to collaborate once again with Mani Ratnam, and starred in his award-winning film Dil Se (1998) opposite Shahrukh Khan.Her role received similarly good reviews, and earned her several awardnominations. Despite performing poorly at the box office in India, thefilm proved to be a hit overseas.

Success followed for Koirala, and she went on to act in severalcritically and commercially successful projects. in 1999, she starredin the moderately successful Kachche Dhaage (1999), which was followed by six more releases, the most notable of them being Indra Kumar's drama Mann.She played the role of a traffic accident victim in the film, whichentered into the top five highest grossing films of the year.Her performance in the film won her favorable reviews. Film critic M.Ali Ikram wrote about her performance, "If there is respite forManisha's innumerable fans of late, this flick is it. We may not careabout hits and flops, but it is painful to watch this acting virtuosoin the innumerable side roles she has been seen in of late. IndraKumar's decision to cast Manisha here, is a case of perfect casting,and she never lets him or the audience down. This lady is truly the Meena Kumari of her generation. It is great fun watching Manisha and Aamir Khan'sperfect chemistry opposite one another. The film's climax has bothstars permanently molding a spot for themselves in Bollywood history,and it will have you shedding tears by the bucketful."
In 2001, she starred in the drama Grahan opposite Jackie Shroff.Her portrayal of a rape victim in the film who quests for justice wasappreciated, but the film was a major commercial failure. She nextplayed the main protagonist in Rajkumar Santoshi's drama Lajja along with an ensemble cast that included Rekha, Anil Kapoor and Madhuri Dixit. The film received a positive reception from critics, and Koirala's performance was particularly praised.
In 2002, she starred opposite Ajay Devgan in Ram Gopal Verma's Company. The film was a critical success, as was Koirala's performance in it, and she won her third Filmfare Best Performer Award.Critic Alok Kumar wrote about her performance, "Manisha Koirala has yetanother solid performance to add to her already overflowing portfolioof excellent roles. She has proved herself once again with a powerfuland sensitive performance. She holds her own in every scene she's inand is amazing in her emotional scenes, displaying confidence andmaturity. Her new look suits her well. Here's a girl who can reallyact."

After years of success, in 2003 Koirala left the mainstream cinema. She was seen in several low budget films, yet not less challenging roles. She ventured into strong woman-oriented films in 2003, such as Escape From Taliban which won her the BFJA Best Actress Award. She then played the main protagonist in the movie Market where she enacted a role of a prostitute, portraying a whole life story. After receiving a diploma in filmmaking, she produced the small-budget caper-comedy Paisa Vasool (2004) in which she starred along with Sushmita Sen; this was probably the first ever chick-flick in Indian cinema in that it did not have a male lead nor a love story.

Overall, Koirala starred as the leading role in 6 high-budget, successful Tamil movies: Bombay (1994) co-starring Arvind Swamy, Indian (1996) co-starring Kamal Hassan, Mudhalvan (1999) co-starring Arjun, Aalavandhan (2001) co-starring Kamal Hassan, Baba (2002) co-starring Rajnikanth and Mumbai Express (2005) co-starring Kamal Hassan.
Since then, she has played supporting and leading roles in variousunsuccessful films, some of which being well received by critics, suchas the historical epic drama Taj Mahal: An Eternal Love Story (2005), the thriller Tum - A Dangerous Obsession (2005), and the horror film Anjaane - The Unknown (2006).Koirala's only release of 2007 was Anwar, in which she played a supporting role.

In 2008, she made her comeback to films, with her first leading role since Mumbai Express (2005), in Tulsi, opposite Irrfan Khan. Although pre-release her comeback was described by the media as "shocking", and the film suffered from poor marketing, her performance as Tulsi, a young homemaker diagnosed with blood cancer, was well received. Taran Adarsh from indiaFM wrote, "Manisha Koirala sinks her teeth in this role and delivers a fine performance."She next starred in Sirf(2008), a movie about four couples from different strata of life, whichportrays the lifestyle of people in metro. The film, which was releasedwithout any notice or publicity, was a major critical failure and faceda low box-office opening, with most shows being cancelled out due toits poor critical response.
Her first Bengali film Khela directed by Rituparno Ghosh also released the same year along with long delayed Hindi film Mehbooba, both films released on the same day.In 2009 her releases include actress Deepti Naval's directorial debut titled Do Paise Ki Dhoop, Char Aane Ki Barish, Jahnu Barua's untitled directorial venture where she is all set to play a 80-year-old women, she is also set to star in Mani Ratnam's Raavan.

Social work:

Ek Chotisi Love Story:
In 2002, Manisha accused the director of the film Ek Chotisi Love StoryShashilal Nair of using Koirala's body double to shoot some love scenesin the film and portraying her in bad light by shooting obscenepostures using another actress in her place, without Manisha's approvalto do so. Koirala required from Nair to re-shoot these scenes becausethe double's body did not match her physique and required that thesescenes be deleted from the film. She later claimed that Nair hadstipulated he would re-shoot the scenes only if she agreed to bear halfthe expenses.
I always believed inShashi. I did this film out of sheer goodwill. I had nothing to gainfrom it financially as I did the film for free. I also gave him all thedates immediately. It was his first chance to direct a film in fouryears. He has a family to support and I couldn't bear to see a friendin hardship.
Koirala decided to sue Nair and dragged him to court. She has movedthe court against him, and objected to the alleged nudity and obscenepostures, and pleaded that these scenes be deleted from the film,saying she had not performed in these scenes and that Nair had made useof another actress for this. Finally, the court decided to stay the release of the film.

The pet case:
Another controversy occurred in February 2006, following a media report claiming Koirala had named her pet dog after a revered Muslimfigure, which caused demonstrations against her. Koirala was providedpolice security to prevent problems. The accusations continued,although Koirala denied them and the police said the actress had no petat all.

Personal life:
Manisha has dated several high profile and lesser known menincluding her earliest boyfriend Sameer (who was a working professionalin the US), actors Rahul Roy, Vivek Mushran, Nana Patekar, Aryan Vaid, Australian ambassador Crispin Conroy, UK based Cecil Anthony among others. She is now reportedly marrying an American named Christopher Dorris. Manisha is known for her gregarious and easy going nature.
