“Manisha’s condition is stable now. Post the surgery, she has been discharged and is back to the hotel. She got discharged on Dec 18,” Subroto Ghosh, Manisha’s manager, told IANS.
“She is very brave and extremely strong. She has taken things very positively,” he added.
Manisha, 42, underwent surgery Dec 10.
Asked him how long will she stay in New York, Ghosh said: “She will be there for at least three more months. Now her treatment is going on and she is responding well. Her parents are with her.”

Later, it was reported that she flew to the US for cancer treatment.
She debuted in Bollywood with 1991 hit movie Saudagar and later featured in films like 1942 A Love Story, Bombay, Dil Se and Lajja.
