Manisha Koirala shares her shades as Nargis Dutt

14th June 2018

Rajkumar Hirani's upcoming film 'Sanju' is in the buzz for every right reason and Ranbir Kapoor as Sanju baba is gaining praises all over. What's more challenging is the role of Nargis Dutt played by Manisha Koirala so eloquently and the 47-year-old shared a glimpse of the shades of her character.

The actress shared a dotting black and white pic of her on-screen character and captioned it, "Many different looks were tried on.. through various photographs and books and documentary.. here are few for you guys.. peep in to what goes on to create a look..amongst other things we tried many hairstyles." The actress is a  cancer survivor and bagging this prestigious role has lifted her strongly when it comes to professional life.

Manisha revealed that more than the way Nargis looked, she has tried to imbibe her soul. "This is new to me. I’ve always been a spontaneous actor. But for Sanju, I did a lot of research on Nargisji. The film focuses on Nargis the doting mother who wanted to protect her son from the truth about her health until his first film was released. Unfortunately, she passed away before her son debut film 'Rocky' released. This really broke him."

Speaking about how inspiring is this role for her she further said, "To live through the pain, trauma and suffering again... It required a lot of inner strength to play Nargisji."
