In 2001, Manisha Koria was engaged to Crispin Conroy, the then ambassador of Australia in Nepal. However, Manisha called off the ceremony saying that she was not ready for marriage.

Last year, Manisha, on her Facebook account said that she would get married to Christopher Dorris, an American author, speaker and mental toughness trainer. It was Dorris who first proposed Koirala and she agreed but then the marriage did not happen for some reason.
