Lisa Ray, who has played lesbian characters in two films, I Can’t Think Straight and A World Unseen, will not attend the Gay Pride Parade in Delhi November 28. And, the actor has a justification at hand. “My choices as an actor are very different from my personal choices.”
The actor, who successfully won her 10-month-long battle with cancer, says she has her priorities set. “Work is only one aspect of life now. It’s not at the top of my list. But, when I do work, it now has to be in line with who I am and what I want,” she says, as she adjusts her resplendent white Wendell Rodricks dress.
So, what is at the top of her list of priorities now? “The F word is my top priority,” she quips, but quickly adds, “Family, friends and fun. We have a legitimate right to be happy and anything you can do to support that, including spending time with friends and family and having fun in life, automatically should be at the top of any list.”
Ray, who’s dating Canadian millionaire Brett Wilson, was in the Capital to unveil a new collection of watches by Rado. “I’m keeping my focus on what’s to come ahead. I’m writing my autobiography and I have some other projects in the pipeline. Life has changed, but the change has been for the good,” the 38-year old signs off.
