Lisa Ray is one of India’s first supermodels. She’s also an acclaimed actor, a philanthropist, writer and entrepreneur, and a woman who has lived many lives.
From her childhood in Canada to her rise as a Bollywood star, trail-blazing a path by choosing unconventional roles and films; from her battle with a rare, form of cancer to becoming a mother of twins born through surrogacy; and through her journey to find identity and belonging, both in the world and in her own body, hers is an exceptional story. Its adventures have taught Lisa that in the brightest and darkest moments, no matter where she travels to, she can always find her way back home – to herself. Come and hear this brave and inspiring story from a woman who has lived her life on her own terms.
Lisa Ray’s memoir, Close to the Bone, is a bestseller in India, and as a poet she explores themes from a nomadic, identity-bending life. Lisa’s writing has been published in Vogue India, Elle India, Mint Lounge, Amazon India, Travel and Leisure, among other publications.
