KIRAN, MEET KAREN
Canadian actress Lisa Ray has been cast as the other lead in
Manan Katohora’s romantic lesbian drama When
Kiran Met Karen, about an Indian-American actress in New York who falls
in love with her female co-star while shooting a film in which she plays a lesbian.
The 35-year-old Ray — who is half Indian and half Polish, speaks Hindi fluently
as a second language, and is best known for starring in the comedy Bollywood/Hollywood — will play Karen, the female co-star Kiran falls for. Here are a few
photos of Lisa:
As we reported back in December, the lead role of Kiran will be played by American actress Purva Bedi:
Looks like a great pairing and a great premise — kinda
similar to what happened on the set of Bloodrayne. Allegedly. Sure,
neither actress was technically playing a lesbian in that movie, but have you
seen their swordplay?
Completely unrelated but inspired by the movie’s title, I wanted to highlight this photoshopped creation by AfterEllen.com member trihardest that was posted in our forum recently:
Meg Ryan and Leisha Hailey? I’ll have what she’s having!
