After her successful recovery or rather victory from the dreaded cancer (Multiple Myeloma, to be precise), the Canada-born Indian actress Lisa Ray is now planning to open her own research institute for cancer in India. She is now planning to join hands with Shiladitya Sengupta (the winner of 2009's 'DoD Breast Cancer Research Program Collaborative Innovators Award') in order to open an institute, that's pencilled on the lines of Boston's Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
After a sabbatical, Lisa also recently expressed her wish to star in Bollywood films once again. The actress is known for her performance in films like Kasoor, Hollywood Bollywood and Water. She is married to management consultant Jason Dehni.
