Lisa Ray teams up with Sanjay Dutt

Lisa Ray is not going to give up in spite of illness. She is destined to work harder and move on in life till she is in workable condition. She has signed a film opposite Sanjay Dutt. The film is based on the real life story of Charles Sobhraj and Prawaal Raman will direct the film.

Confirming Lisa’s presence, director Prawaal Raman says, "Lisa is to play the Charles Sobhraj character's love interest. After I heard about her illness I was wondering if bringing up work would be wise. But she assures me she's on." He goes on to say, "I'm in touch with her regularly. I'm sure she'll be able to shoot quite comfortably. We'll make sure of that. I can't even dream of replacing her."

Sanjay Dutt has given his dates in December and the film is expected to roll this year.

In spite of suffering from incurable cancer, Lisa Ray did not lose heart. She even attended the Toronto International Film Festival held recently.
