Shimla, Apr 19: Bollywood actress Manisha Koirala on Monday admired the "understanding" people of Shimla for ensuring hassle-free shooting and showered praises on its natural beauty and serene surrounding.
Koirala, who is in the city for the shoot of her upcoming movie "Dear Maya" said, "Shimla is a fantastic city, I am fascinated by the natural beauty of the city and its serene environment and also thankful to the authorities for ensuring hassle-free shooting".
"It will be fantastic if necessary infrastructure is developed in Shimla for film industry for promoting budding actors and other professionals," she said.
The actress said she enjoyed a neat and clean place like Shimla and had a good time hiking at various spots around the capital city.
