KATHMANDU: While the website of The Times of India has reported that Bollywood actress Manisha Koirala has been diagnosed with cancer, Thapathali-based Norvic Hospital in Kathmandu has rebutted the report as' false'.

“She left for Mumbai today,” said Rawat’s assistant seeking anonymity
"Manisha was suffering from food poisoning when she was in Kathmandu. But she has returned to her home in Mumbai today,” said Baishali, who is Koirala’s domestic help, to our New-Delhi based correspondent Rupesh Acharya.
