With Call Me Bae, Lisa showcases her versatility and talent beyond the music realm. Her portrayal in the series promises to add depth and charm to the storyline, drawing viewers into a world of romance, drama, and humour. Expressing her excitement about taking on this noteworthy project, Lisa Mishra exudes, “‘Call Me Bae’ marks my first project as an actor, and I am so grateful it is with a director as welcoming and hardworking as Collin. He really supported me throughout as a newcomer acting opposite so many well-trained artists. In many ways I feel close to my character in the show, especially the grit and humanity she brings to the story. After a point, I couldn’t tell where she ended and I began - and that is clearly a credit to the excellent writing and storytelling of Ishita Moitra.”

“Ananya really shines in her role as Bae, and once people see what she’s added to the role I am sure the series will become a favourite among all ages. Additionally, the scenes I shared with Vir truly pushed me as a performer and I think audiences will really enjoy our arc.”, she adds.

The logline reads, "Downsized from heiress to hustler, Bae discovers that her most valuable assets aren’t her diamonds, but her street smarts and style. Broke but refusing to be broken, she navigates the newsrooms of Mumbai, finding beaus, behens, and her better self." Directed by Collin D'Cunha, the series is written by Ishita Moitra, Samina Motlekar, and Rohit Nair and created by Ishita Moitra.

Along with taking on her first acting project, Mishra simultaneously continues to mesmerize her audiences with the release of her debut music album this year titled Sorry I’m Late. The album is a reflection of her own life experiences, and truly captures the myriad emotions of the female experience, delving into themes of loss, heartbreak, loneliness, anger, and redemption. With two very distinct songs from the album already captivating her listeners – ‘Aadat’ and ‘Saza’, Mishra sets the stage for a musical experience filled with emotion and creativity with the rest of her album soon to be unveiled.
