From being the ‘Afreen Afreen’ girl to being a cancer survivor, Indo-Canadian actor Lisa Ray has been through a lot and come out a winner. The 40-year-old, who’s been part of Hindi movies such as Kasoor (2001) and Water (2005), says she is ready to bounce back into Bollywood with a bang: “I’m looking forward to more work in Bollywood. I will also be producing two films.” Lisa, who visited the Capital recently as the brand ambassador of watch brand Rado, is excited about her wedding to fiance Jason Dehni, a banking executive and philanthropist, scheduled to take place on October 20 this year in Napa Valley, California. In a freewheeling interview, Lisa talks about her future, her fight with cancer and more.
