Bollywood actress Manisha Koirala, who was undergoing treatment in New York after being diagnosed with ovarian cancer, says she is now "free" from the disease and calls it her "rebirth". 


In a post on her Facebook page on Wednesday, Manisha, 42, shared her joy when her doctor gave her the good news.  

I burst out crying when I heard 'cancer free'. I still have a long way to go for regaining my health, slowly and steadily. With your prayers and blessings I received during this phase, I am sure that day too will come, she posted. 

The actress also thanked her fans for all the love and blessings.  In gratitude for the compassion I saw, felt in so many... my old and new friends, my family, my cancer club members who inspired me with their spirit, my amma, bhagwan (god) and oneness family and you all my Facebook and Twitter friends, it's your unyielding love that helped me!

I call this as my 'rebirth', she further wrote.  Manisha was initially admitted to Mumbai's Jaslok Hospital on November 28 last year after which she flew down to the US for further treatment. 

The actress, who has worked in critically acclaimed films like Dil Se and 1942: A Love Story, made her debut with Saudagar? in 1991. In recent times, she featured in Ram Gopal Varma's Bhoot Returns.
