"They both spoke for a long time. Manisha was extremely happy to see one of her close friends in New York," Subroto Ghosh, Manisha's manager, told IANS.
"Whenever Manisha used to go to (Kolkata), she used to meet Rituparna. They share a cordial relationship."
Rituparna was in New York with her family for some personal work.
"She is extremely brave and is very positive. She will be in the US for six months. Her parents and brother are with her. She is responding well," said Ghosh.
