Actress Preity Zinta praised her Dil Se co-star Manisha Koirala for her performance in the Netflix series Heeramandi and hailed her as a ‘powerhouse of talent’.

Manisha posted a long post on her Heeramandi experience on Instagram on Sunday and Preity was quick in appreciating her in the comment section.

“I love you Manisha.  I saw the show for you & you killed it. You are such a powerhouse of talent & an even better human being,” she said.

Preity recalled her Dil Se days and wrote on Instagram: “I will never forget how lovely, welcoming & generous you were to me in Dil Se Thanks to you I started my film journey on such a positive note. You never made me feel I was working with a superstar & nurtured me on the shoot – always smiling, accommodating & ready for rehearsal & suggestions.”

Preity commenced her Bollywood journey with Manisha and Shah Rukh Khan’s Dil Se.

The movie, which released in 1998, was directed by Mani Ratnam and is considered as a part of his trilogy, alongside Roja (1992) and Bombay (1995).

Meanwhile, Koirala made a strong comeback in Bollywood with Heeramandi.

Heeramandi: The Diamond Bazaar is an Indian Urdu-language period drama series created and directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali.

The series is about the lives of tawaifs (courtesans) in the red-light district of Heera Mandi in Lahore during the Indian independence movement against the British Raj.
