Manisha Koirala's cancer journey has been an inspiring one, and now, the actress has chronicled the story of her survival in a book. On Tuesday, her friends and colleagues from the film industry, including Shekhar Kapur, Anupam Kher, Jackie Shroff, Rekha, Bhagyashree, Mahesh Bhatt and Gulshan Grover gathered together to launch her book, titled Healed: How Cancer Gave Me a New Life.

The 48-year-old actress, who's known for films like Bombay and Khamoshi, took to her Twitter handle to share photos from the event and thanked the celebs for attending her book launch event.

Speaking at the book launch, Anupam Kher, who is gearing up for the release of his film The Accidental Prime Minister, talked about his brother Raju Kher, who is also a cancer survivor.

Rekha spoke at the event too, lauding Manisha's spirit for carrying on with life even after being hit so hard.

Manisha was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 2012. Her memoir gives an insight into how the Dil Se actress fought the battle against cancer and how she rebuilt her life once she returned home. She had earlier said that the life threatening disease had "changed" her life forever. Manisha was last seen in Sanju, playing the role of Sanjay Dutt's mother Nargis.
