This green-eyed beauty entered the modelling world at the age of sixteen when Lisa Ray was discovered by Maureen Wadia, through her Glad Rags magazine with a daring pose wearing nothing more than a red Baywatch - style swimsuit. Born to a Bengali father and a Polish mother, this Toronto beauty shot to limelight with her first campaign for Bombay Dyeing. And since then, she hasnīt looked back.

Then suddenly when she was in the peak of her success she vanished and then reappeared again after quite some time looking more charming and lovely. Explaining her sudden disappearance, Lisa says, "It was very important to take a break as it gave me a fresh perspective to my work." Her electrifying presence was felt in Nusrat Fateh Ali Khanīs music video Aaafreen aafreen and Daler Mehendiīs Har taraf tera jalwa, which almost set the small screen on fire. Even after a decade on the modelling scene, her freshness is displayed in her current ads like Lakme and Matiz. Lisa has also anchored a TV shows on Star Movies.


Of her own beauty, she says, "People don't realise how much other people work at making you look good. A lot of magic happens behind the scenes..." And Lisa believes her USP as a model comes from being a great canvas for the magic to work on. "I think I'm completely flexible. I can be made to look very different every time - that's my special contribution to any project. I can look young and innocent, or do a great vamp look; very, very foreign or absolutely Indian." Lisa's charm worked in the film 'Kasoor' where she looked absolutely ravishing. However Lisa dealers that Hindi film is not her cup of tea. "Hindi films are a completely different world unto themselves - of untapped talent and too much politicising. Our films need to improve in quality and production values, to speak the international language of cinema," she declares.

Of her exit from the late Mukul Anand's Dus, she says, "I realised that that world was not for me. It demands dedication; it sucks your life - I was not willing to give it that. My logic to quit when I did was that it was better to leave than do a half-hearted job or leave half way through - it seemed to me the most decent thing to do. A lot of models are going into films," she muses, "Hats off to them. It's a difficult life and unfortunately people expect too much from them. They probably work their butts off. I'm just much lazier, I guess."
