Manisha Koirala on fountain scene in Heeramandi

Manisha Koirala took to her official instagram handle to talk about some of the challenges faced during the shoot of 'Heeramandi'. She wrote about a scene in which she had to stay in a water fountain for almost 12 hours. "Today, when I am receiving so many accolades, I can’t help but remember the doubts and anxiety that plagued me when I was about to start shooting. Still recovering from the dreaded C, would my body be strong enough to deal with the intense shooting schedules, heavy costumes, and jewelry, and perform a role requiring so much nuance and effortless effort?”


“The fountain sequence proved the most physically challenging. It required me to be immersed in a water fountain for over 12 hours. That tested my resilience! Even though Sanjay had thoughtfully ensured that the water was warm and clean, over the hours, the water turned muddy, (because my team members, the Cinematographer, and the art director’s team were getting into the water to work around the scene.) Every single pore in my body was soaked in that muddy water. Even though I was beyond exhaustion by the end of the shoot, I felt a deep happiness within my heart. My body had taken the stress and remained resilient. I knew I had passed a critical physical test. To you, who think your time has come and gone, whether it’s due to age, illness, or any setback, never give up! You never know what could be waiting for you around the bend!” Koirala added.
