She later got a break as a model in a popular Bengali teen magazine. On seeing her photos in the magazine, she got a call from film director Ravi Ojha’s production house for working in TV and was cast in a Bengali TV serial.


Love Is In The Air


While Manali married singer Saptak Bhattacharya in 2012, the couple have separated since then. The actor is now dating director Abhimanyu Mukherjee who she met during the shooting of a film. She often shares photos with him on her social media accounts.

The Big Screen

She returned to TV with Nakshi Kantha where she plays the role of Shabnam, one of the leads. Needless to say, her character has gained immense popularity among the audience.
