Lisa Ray’s ‘only complaint’ in India

Mumbai, Dec 20 (IANS) Indo-Canadian actress Lisa Ray, known for films like “Water” and “Bollywood/Hollywood”, says that in India, she didn’t get the credit for being a trained actress.

“My only complaint is that in India, I never got enough credit for being a trained actress because most of my acting career has been outside of India for the last few years. And I’ve actually done very serious roles,” Lisa, an alumna of the Academy of Live and Recorded Arts, said at the trailer launch of “Ishq Forever” on Saturday.

“I’m very frank about the fact. I’m 43 and I started my career very young and I have gone through many different transitions and taken very individualist choices,” added the actress, who had even put up a brave fight against cancer a few years back.

She believes the film industry is going through “such an interesting period right now”.

“The stories and roles have dramatically shifted since the 1990s. So, I’m just grateful to maybe play a small role in that and I love India so, I’m between here and Hong Kong. I consider myself very Indian because I moved to India when I was 16,” she added.

Asked if after “Ishq Forever”, she intends to do more Hindi films, she said: “I never plan anything. What I learned from my recent experiences is to take life as it comes. Post-cancer, I’m just full of gratitude for everything that life has to offer.”

“I was a little nervous, it’s been a long time since I have been in a Hindi film. Every actor gets nervous. You wonder if you can still do it,” she added.
