She stated, “And I realised that when everybody leaves me, these are the people who will be with me. My priority is my immediate family, no matter what. They come first in my life, everybody else later.” Despite facing immense challenges, Manisha remains grateful for the steadfast support of her family, acknowledging their pivotal role in her journey towards recovery and healing.
