As Bollywood actress Manisha Koirala fights her battle with cancer she has no one by her side from her own working fraternity.

Even though Manisha has received support from her family friends, who ensured she received the best of medical treatment in New York, the actress seemed anguished over the no-show from her Bollywood peers.

"How slowly, shadows of my past friendships are becoming distant dream... did I have bunch of friends with whom there were promises of life time? Disappointed, yes I m...but then life fills you with new hope, new friends...hoping this time round it would be rooted in deep values rather then just crazy, fun times!!" a depressed Manisha wrote on her Facebook page.

None of her colleagues, except Deepti Naval, stayed in touch with her during her illness, laments the actress
The film fraternity has always been infamous for its share if fair-weather friends. And Manisha Koirala is learning it the hard way.

The actress, who is preparing to return to India in July, post her treatment for cancer, poured her heart out on a social networking site on Saturday, on how lonely the journey has been.
No Bollywood stars have visited her or even enquired about her wellbeing while she is going through chemotherapies in New York except, Deepti Naval.
It remains to be seen if the missing friends rally around her once she returns to the city this summer.
