The actress shared her feelings on reuniting with the co-actor and said, "I am super-thrilled that I got the opportunity to work with him again. It's his home production and the remake of a South Indian film. Original film's director is directing Hindi version of it as well. It's a political action-packed family drama so, I am very excited and looking forward to work in that film."

When asked what's her first impression of Sanjay Dutt, she said, "I have been a fan of Sanjay Dutt. I was in school when Rocky was released and after few years, I got an opportunity to work with him... I was always in awe of him.

"Basically Baba (Sanjay Dutt) is all heart. He is a person who has heart of gold. The most endearing quality about him is that from a spot boy, light man to the director and his co-actors, he treats everyone on the set equally and he is full of love and affection."

When asked about her role in Sanjuu, Manisha Koirala said, "I was actually more apprehensive to play the character of Nargis Dutt... as I didn't want to relive those memories... I also had no idea whether I will be able to relive that or not."

Manisha Koirala and Nargis, both suffered from cancer. But only Manisha Koirala survived through.
