Lisa Ray accuses newspaper of ‘casual sexism’ for sharing her glamourous picture with article about her memoir

Published

on

Actor-model Lisa Ray, who turned author recently with her debut book and memoir Close To The Bone, was furious Friday morning when she saw her glamourous image used in a recent interview with a newspaper. In an interview about her book, a Kolkata newspaper used a racy picture of Lisa.

Sharing a clip of the newspaper article, Lisa wrote on Instagram, “Does anyone else see the irony in using THIS image – instead of an author image provided by my publisher – for an article about my memoir @CloseToTheBone_ where I talk about struggling as a women with overcoming sexist stereotypes? Just landed in #Kolkata and I must say I’m disappointed With #TheTelegraph unless I’m missing the punchline? I’ve written in depth on this manner of casual sexism during the 90s in India in @closetothebone.book but it seems it still persists. We NEED to change the narrative. What say?”

Talking about being called a “sex symbol”, Lisa had earlier told PTI, “I hate to be labelled and put into boxes but I had to deal with it since a young age because I was a sex symbol at the age of 16. It was completely unanticipated. To suddenly become this figure for an entire nation and on top of that, to look much older, that has haunted me my entire life up until now.”

“So, I chose to appear on the red carpet even when I was 41-pound overweight because of the steroid use for my cancer treatment…That was a breaking moment for me to talk about something that is deeply personal,” she said.

The late Sushant Singh Rajputs last film Dil Bechara will premiere on the OTT platform Disney+ Hotstar, on July 24.

“Sushant was not just the hero of my debut film as a director, but he was a dear friend who stood by me through thick and thin. We had been close right from Kai Po Che to Dil Bechara,” said the film’s director Mukesh Chhabra.

Dil Bechara is the official remake of 2014 Hollywood romantic drama The Fault in our Stars, based on John Green’s popular novel of the same name. Budding actress Sanjana Sanghi stars opposite Sushant in the film.

“He had promised me that he would be in my first film. So many plans were made together, so many dreams were dreamt together but never once did I ever imagine that I would be left alone to release this film. He always showered immense love on me while I was making it and his love will guide us as we release it,” Chhabra added.

The film will see Saif Ali Khan in a cameo. Composer AR Rahman and lyricist Amitabh Bhattacharya have collaborated to create music for the project.

Sanjana shared the news on her social media, writing: “A story of love, of hope, and of endless memories. Celebrating our dearest, and the late #SushantSinghRajput ‘s legacy that will be etched in the minds of all and cherished forever.”

Talking about the decision to release it digitally, Uday Shankar, president, The Walt Disney Company APAC and Chairman, Star and Disney India, said: “We are humbled to be able to play a small part in sustaining the legacy of a fine actor like Sushant Singh Rajput.

Lauren Gottlieb shares old chat with Sushant Singh Rajput

Published

on

Actress and dancer Lauren Gottlieb has shared screenshots of a conversation with late actor Sushant Singh Rajput, in which he opened up on making his place in Bollywood with his “average look and average talent”.

“Today, I finally brought myself to look at my WhatsApp messages with Sushant over the years. I came across one conversation that broke my heart all over again, as it was filled with so much love, kindness, and true support for one another’s dreams!” Lauren wrote along with screenshots of her conversation with the actor.

The conversation happened between the two before the release of Sushant’s hit film “M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story”.

In the conversation, Lauren shared her aspirations with him where she informs him that she is ready to take big leaps in her career.

As a response, Sushant explained to her that his switch from TV to films was difficult, and credited his survival to his choices. Sushant even goes on to call himself an average looking boy with average talent who made it big only because of his strong prejudice, but Lauren doesn’t agree with him.

Sushant later agrees that he is good and others around him are mediocre, but says he has a long long way to go. He then praises her and calls her talented and passionate.

“If an average looking boy with average talent and strong prejudice can make it, trust me anything is possible,” he told her in 2016.

In her emotional post, Lauren said that she felt a “deep connection” with Sushant.

She wrote: “I felt a deep connection with Sushant as we were both ‘outsiders’ and I looked up to him tremendously! I wanted to share this chat we had to remind everyone to walk, talk, and treat EVERYONE with this great amount of LOVE and SUPPORT as HE shared!!! I’m seeing so much hate going around. I do not want to tell anyone how to grieve, my process this week looked pretty ugly, BUT I think one of the BEST ways to honour his legacy is to BE THE BRIGHT, BEAUTIFUL, LOVING LIGHT that he exuded each and every day. The world is a better place because of Sushant’s humble heart. Let’s keep sharing his magic and be kind to one another.”
