Indo-Canadian actor Lisa Ray is ready for her first acting assignment after being treated for multiple myeloma, an incurable cancer of white blood cells that affects the bone marrow.
She will be acting in a play called Taj, alongside Kabir Bedi, in which she will be playing Jahan Ara, the daughter of Mughal emperor Shah Jahan and the latter will be essaying the role of Shah Jahan.
Kabir Bedi had earlier played the role of Shah Jahan in Akbar Khan’s Taj Mahal.
Ray, who was announced cancer free in April last year, after following radical stem cell therapy treatment, expressed her happiness about returning to acting.
Taj will be staged in Toronto on 10 June, 2011.
