Lakshmi Manchu is the daughter of the famous Telugu hero Mohan Babu and close friend of Super Star Rajnikanth. She apart from being an actress is also a producer. She is currently producing Maranthen Mannithen and Thalaivan Varugiran in Tamil and Telugu.
Director Manirathnam had approached her and asked her that whether she is willing to act in an important role. She also agreed. She dons the role of commercial sex worker as well as a pet of Arjun. She has to accuse Aravind Swamy who is the enemy of Arjun.
Actress Lakshmi felt that her role is big and by acting in it, she can earn a good name among the Tamil audience. Manirathnam has shot ten sequences and a song sequence featuring Lakshmi Manchu.
This film was released on 1st February in Telugu and Tamil. Lakshmi eagerly saw the film. Her song sequence with Arjun was missing. Apart from this, most of the sequences in which she had acted with Arjun were also deleted. There were only four scenes in this film featuring her. Lakshmi was shocked. She was also shocked earlier because she was boycotted in the promotions.
Lakshmi Manchu had tweeted, “I was shocked and offended after seeing Kadal. My sequences were trimmed very much. My song sequence was also deleted. There will always be a good reason whatever Mani sir does. I hope there will also be a good reason for this also. I have still great respect for him. Best of luck next time.”
