Actress Manisha Koirala says it is okay to be a bit selfish and look after oneself.

“I have redefined the term ‘selfish’. Looking after oneself is important and this includes both the physical and emotional aspects,” Manisha wrote along with an image of herself on Instagram on Saturday.

“It is okay to be sad. We are multidimensional beings. The emotional aspect matters a great deal to me. It pulls me down and manifests itself in my body. So, I now emphasise that it is perfectly fine to prioritise yourself,” added the actress.

On the work front, she had mesmerised audiences with her performances in films like “Saudagar”, “Khamoshi: The Musical”, “Mann”, “Dil Se..” and “1942: A Love Story”.
