'May be someday I will be free of fear of relapse and adopt a baby girl... Till then having a family of my own is a distant dream!! Hope and more,' Manish posted on Twitter.

Hailing from Nepal, the actress who stepped into Bollywood with her 1991 debut film 'Saudagar', went on to work with directors like Mani Ratnam, Ram Gopal Varma, Vidhu Vinod Chopra and Raj Kumar Santoshi.
