Manisha Koirala says working in Rajinikanth’s Tamil film Baba ended her south career – Times of India

Manisha Koirala has worked across languages such as Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam and more. She has received several accolades for her stellar performances in her acting career. She made a mark in south film industry with films such as Bombay (1995), Indian (1996) and Mudhalvan (1999). She recently revealed that the brutal failure of Rajinikanth‘s Tamil film Baba ended her career in the south.
In a new interview, Manisha opened up about her south career and how the 2002 film Baba impacted her career. “Baba was probably my last big Tamil film. It flopped so badly in those days. It was such a huge disaster. Lot of expectations were on the film and when it flopped, I thought my career in south films was gone completely and it did in a way. Before Baba, I was getting multiple south films. After Baba flopped, I stopped getting offers,” she said in a video clip.

Interestingly, Baba, which was directed by Suresh Krissna, was re-released in theatres last year on Rajinikanth’s birthday and it managed to register decent numbers at the box office. Manisha said that she was glad that Baba turned out to be a hit after 20 years.
“Strangely, the film turned out to be a hit when it was re-released which is unheard of. Rajini sir can never give a flop. He is such a kind man to work with,” she said.

On the work front, Manisha was last seen in Kartik Aaryan’s Shehzada. She will be next seen in Sanjay Leela Bhansali‘s web series Heeramandi.
