Bollywood actress Lisa Ray has revealed on her blog that she has been diagnosed with an incurable form of cancer called multiple myeloma.

The plasma cells in my bone marrow were rampaging, multiplying, squeezing out the red blood cells and it was time to begin doing something about it. You just know when something is kosher with your body. When I got the news, I didn't react and didn't cry. I am an actress, believe me, I can be dramatic."
