Manisha was undergoing treatment in New York but last month she announced that she is cancer free.

"I do love shopping on street fairs, have a lemonade, fresh corn, bargain a bit for antique jewellery. Felt great to walk on street," Koirala posted on twitter from New York.

Koirala also found time to watch Baz Luhrmann's recently released film 'The Great Gatsby', which also stars Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan in a special role.

"Loved 'The Great Gatsby'. Amit Ji is fabulous, camera loves him so does the viewers and of course Leonardo DiCaprio. The film matched with the book," she tweeted.

Born in Nepal, Koirala made her Bollywood debut with 'Saudagar' in 1991 and went on to star in successful films like '1942: A Love Story', 'Agni Sakshi', 'Bombay', 'Khamoshi: The Musical' and 'Company'.

Her last release was Ram Gopal Varma's 'Bhoot Returns'.
