BOLLYWOOD: Lisa Ray may have charmed many with her acting skills in Bollywood, but few know that this actor is a self-confessed bookworm who keeps huge stacks of books by her side. And fuelled by the desire for the written word, she has decided to pen a book on poetry, which will be out by next year.
“I think, I’m a writer, who accidentally became an actor. Writing has always been my parallel passion.
My father is Bengali, so reading has been part of my upbringing. In fact, as a child, I was an introvert and tried to figure out a profession that would have the least possible human contact. Thus, I wanted to be a writer. But my life got diverted,” says the actor popular for her roles in films such as Kasoor (2001), Water (2005).
