02 February,2015:Â Actress Manisha Koirala says though Bollywood is often projected as a harsh industry, she salutes its artistes for having great respect and affection towards each other.
The 44-year-old â€˜Dil Seâ€™ star, who attended 60th Filmfare Awards last night, said she was touched by the fraternityâ€™s display of respect for the senior actors.
â€œLast night at Filmfare was nostalgic,as I remembered my first few awards. How things have evolved into but mostly what remains closest to my heart is what a great industry it is! The way every one got up to give respect to Kamini Kaushalji, Rekhaji stood long till Kaminiji had left the stage, how graceful n respectful Jayaji was while asking younger generation to know who Kaminiji is,â€ Manisha wrote on her Facebook page.
Kaushal bagged the lifetime achievement award in the ceremony for her outstanding contribution to the Indian cinema.
â€œI loved that Ranbir (Kapoor) touched Rekha jiâ€™s feet. Honestly, no matter how badly certain people portray this film
industry,it has itâ€™s great qualities that should never be ignored..I salute this industry and its true soul, the artists (The glamour and facade can take back seat for a bit),â€ she added.
