Canadian born Bollywood actress Lisa Ray is not a person to forget her roots so easily. Her father being a Bengali, she loves India as much as Indians love her. She is thankful to India for the love she has received.
“It"s 6:30 am and I have not slept. That"s another thing about steroids. They make you really hyper. And I blame you India. You have sent me so much love. And advice. So I went through each and every message. Like the good, dutiful half-Bengali daughter I am. Except I"m not studying for my medical finals, I"m looking at each and every word you have sent," she wrote on her blog.
Lisa Ray said that she is humbled by the response to her article. “Thank you to my friends and colleagues there who have reached out or expressed their support. I send love and hope to connect with each of you in the real world," she wrote.
Lisa announced a couple of days ago that she has been diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma, a cancer of the white blood cells known as plasma cells, which produce antibodies. She has started her first cycle of treatment.
It maybe recalled that Lisa plunged into Bollywood through Kasoor in 2001 opposite Aftab Shivdasani after a successful modelling career. She went on to act in films like Water, Bollywood/Hollywood and many others. Her latest film I Can't Think Straight by Shamim Sharif is releasing today.
