The yet untitled memoir promises to be an unflinching and deeply moving account of Lisa’s nomadic existence: her entry into the Indian entertainment industry; her relationship with her Bengali father and Polish mother; movie sets and the Oscars with her nominated film “Water”; her battle with eating disorder; being diagnosed with multiple myeloma; her spiritual quest; and the heartaches and triumphs of her journey. “I’ve been working on this a long time and, after the birth of my twins, it feels like my third baby… It’s hard to tell your own story authentically without unwavering support. I hope this will be the first of many more stories I have to share,” she added, reports Mid-Day.
In 2009, Lisa was diagnosed with multiple myeloma, a cancer of the white blood cells known as plasma cells, which produce antibodies. A year later, she announced that she was cancer-free, after a stem cell transplant. The actress made a comeback in Hindi filmdom in 2016 with “Ishq Forever”. She was later seen in films like “Veerappan” and “Dobaraa”. Diya Kar from HarperCollins India said: “Lisa’s memoir is candid, brave and inspiring. We are delighted that we will be publishing the story of her remarkable journey.”
