Manisha Koirala, who recently recovered from ovarian cancer, has a heartfelt desire to adopt a baby girl soon. The actress has courageously fought her battle against cancer and longs to start her own family. She is not the only Bollywood star that took the noble step of adopting children and giving them unconditional support by making them a part of their family. Let's take a look at some of the Bollywood stars that have done the same in the past:
Accomplished screen writer, who also happens to be the father of super star Salman Khan, adopted a baby girl who we know as Arpita Khan. She was adopted long before adoption was popular among celebrities. Arpita is now happily a part of their family and is much loved by siblings Salman, Arbaaz and Sohail.
The gorgeous actress adopted daughters Renee and Alisah, who seemed to have changed her life for the better. Sushmita is often seen with them and it looks like they're always having a good time bonding as family. They are often seen at fashion shows as this former miss universe passes on her learning of stage presence onto them.
Bollywood director-producer Subhash Ghai chooses to keep his personal life private and doesn't disclose much about his relationship with adopted daughter Meghna. However, we are sure that he is proud of this decision as Meghna now stands as the president of 'Whistling Woods' international and lends him a helping hand in fulfilling his dream of running a complete film school.
Bollywood actress Raveena Tandon adopted daughters Pooja and Chayya in the year 1995, long before her marriage to businessman Anil Thadani. The couple now has two children of their own (Rasha & Ranbir) post marriage.
Filmmaker Dibaker Banerjee of 'Oye Lucky! Lucky Oye!' and 'Khosla Ka Ghosla' fame, adopted a baby girl along with wife Richa and name her Ira. He seems to have made a deep connection with Ira as he openly expressed in an interview. He said, â€œTo a daughter, a father can do no wrong. They want you to be the best thing in their life. Everyone judges you except that child. I could have had a miserable flop, but when I would come back to my child, I would be the heroâ€
