South actor Lakshmi Rai was part of the two biggest Tamil hits of the year 2011 – Mankatha and Kanchana. So, you would expect film offers to pour in. But the south babe hasn’t signed any Tamil films this year
And its definitely not for want of offers,according to Lakshmi Rai . “I didn’t want to do just any film that came my way. I was approached for Karthi’s next film, but the role just wasn’t good enough,” said Lakshmi says.
But she’s busy enough in other languages, with two films in Kannada, one in Telugu and three in Malayalam. She is, in fact, having a great run in Mollywood, starring opposite the heavyweights like Mammootty and Mohanlal. So it was no surprise when she was roped in as brand ambassador for the Kerala Strikers during the Celebrity Cricket series. Lakshmi Rai has quite a connection with the game, if you know what we mean. But we doubt ignoring Kollywood projects is a good idea after all the star actor made her debut into films with Tamil film Karka Kasadara in 2005. Tch Tch!
