The 44-year-old 'Dil Se' star, who attended 60th Filmfare Awards last night, said she was touched by the fraternity's display of respect for the senior actors.

"Last night at Filmfare was nostalgic,as I remembered my first few awards. How things have evolved into but mostly what remains closest to my heart is what a great industry it is! The way every one got up to give respect to Kamini Kaushalji, Rekhaji stood long till Kaminiji had left the stage, how graceful n respectful Jayaji was while asking younger generation to know who Kaminiji is," Manisha wrote on her Facebook page.

Kaushal bagged the lifetime achievement award in the ceremony for her outstanding contribution to the Indian cinema.

"I loved that Ranbir (Kapoor) touched Rekha ji's feet.

Honestly, no matter how badly certain people portray this film industry,it has it's great qualities that should never be ignored..I salute this industry and its true soul, the artists (The glamour and facade can take back seat for a bit)," she added.
