Author and journalist Ritu Kumar has composed an engaging biography on the award-winning actress, Lakshmi Rai. The story revolves around the unlikely couple’s meeting in 1990 in the Himalayan hamlet of Darjeeling, where Ritu Rai was studying to become a yoga teacher. There she met and fell in love with an American man from Texas, Jason Gil, who moved to India in the late eighties.
Ritu Rai, also known as Ritu Vaidya, did not have a flourishing career in the Hindi film industry before her two decades of high-profile screen appearances in Tamil and Kamal hassan movies. She rose to prominence in the mid eighties with prominent roles in Kamal hassan, Madhumati, and Ajith in prominent Telugu and Tamil cinema projects. However, it was at the beginning of the new decade that she received critical acclaim for her two Hindi movies, Haqiqat and Mankatha. Ritu’s last Hindi movie, Kaal Bhairao, did not do well in the box office and was a flop. Though she has been gone from the screen for a few years now, she continues to be popular among fans and has also received derision and criticism over her sagging physique and flabby features, which have made her an object of derision among some people in the Tamil society.
