Ten years after she last romanced a woman on screen, Lisa Ray is set to play a lesbian again in Amazon Prime Video's Four More Shots Please. Hopping aboard the project to play a pivotal role in the show — featuring Sayani Gupta, Kirti Kulhari, Bani J and Maanvi Gagroo in lead roles — Ray marks her digital debut with the offering.

A source close to the production tells mid-day, "Lisa has never shied away from portraying bold characters on screen. She plays a superstar; a closet lesbian, in the show. Her last act as a gay character was appreciated."

The series will also feature Sapna Pabbi, Milind Soman, Neil Bhoopalam and Prateik Babbar and is scheduled to hit the web on January 25.
