"If a good script on cancer comes, I will definitely work on it," she added.

Clad in a red dress and sporting a short hair style, Manisha, 43, shared how she battled cancer and how it can be dealt with.

"Many people often said that I am a cancer survivor, but I am a cancer crusader. I successfully battled against cancer. Cancer does not bring death and this should be told to every one," said the actress of films like "Bombay" and "Dil Se".

She plans to actively involve herself in cancer awareness program.

"Health is ultimately a big thing, which I realised when I was in bed during the treatment," she said.
