So, is she now equipped to make a full-length movie? "Not really. I will need to attend a few more classes to learn more about other streams of filmmaking like, say, camerawork," she explained.
Talking about "Khela" that is still being shot, Manisha said, "It is a very sensitive film. It is about a woman whose filmmaker husband gets busy with his work and she feels unwanted."
"I adore the way Ritu gets into a woman's head, portrays her and her complexities."
The actress who made waves in the south with superhits like Mani Ratnam's "Bombay"(1994) and Sankar's "Mudhalvan" (1999) said Ghosh was open to contributions from everybody.
"I don't know whether it is the Bengali film industry or Ritu's movie - everybody, including the clap-boy, tries to be creative. Ritu himself has said that a film is made by everyone involved and not just the director."
"Compared to that, someone like Mani Ratnam is stricter in terms of contributions. Everything goes according to Mani's vision of the movie."
Manisha also has Ram Gopal Varma's "Darwaza Bandh Rakhna" and "Shiv". She will feature in "Tulsi" with Irrfan Khan and a few untitled films.
She has joined the southern Indian production house G.V. Films Ltd as a member of the board of directors.
"As a member of the G.V. Films' board of directors I will be sharing the same responsibility as other directors. I will also be providing inputs from my own experience in the field in the past 20 years," she said.
Manisha herself ventured into production with "Paisa Vasool" (2004) that bombed at the box office.
"I take full responsibility for the film's debacle. I could have perhaps marketed the movie better," she said.
