Director Jay Prakash is keen to sign Manisha Koirala for "Market 2" after she returns from New York, where she is undergoing treatment for ovarian cancer.

"Manisha is my lucky charm. She was in my film 'Market' and I had discussed the script of 'Market 2' with her. She liked the script. Once she is back after her treatment, I will again narrate the script to her," he said.

"Market", released in 2003, was about a woman sold to a brothel by her husband.

Manisha, 42, was operated upon in December last year in a hospital in New York. She is currently undergoing chemotherapy sessions there. Her manager Subroto Ghosh says she may return in July.

Prakash said: "Manisha is recovering well and I am in touch with her manager. I think she should be back in three to four months. I share a very good rapport with her. I have worked with her in 'Market' and 'Chaahat - Ek Nasha' and can't see 'Market 2' without her."

Manisha, who has also worked in critically acclaimed films like "Dil Se", "1942: A Love Story" and "Lajja", made her Bollywood debut with "Saudagar" in 1991.

She was last seen in Ram Gopal Varma's "Bhoot Returns".
