Actress Lakshmi Menon celebrates her 18th birthday today. In a short span of professional career Lakshmi Menon has become the most sought after actress with back to back hit films. Interestingly the actress is still in her teens and is yet to complete her school education.
Lakshmi Menon was born in Kerala and trained herself in Bharatanatyam dance. One of her classical dance performances drew the attention of director Vinayan who opened her the doors of Malayalam film industry with his directorial venture ‘Raghuvinte Swantham Raziya’ in 2011.
In 2012 she acted in another Malayalam film titled ‘Ideal Couple’ before making her debut in Tamil with Sasikumar in ‘Sundarapandian’. She was also simultaneously acting in ‘Kumki’ directed by Prabhu Solomon. Both the film released in the same year were declared as super hits and gave a ‘luck factor’ tag to Lakshmi Menon in Tamil film industry and also fetched her the fame of an actress who can perform well.
In 2013 she acted in two films ‘Kutti Puli’ in which she was paired up again with Sasikumar and ‘Pandiya Naadu’ with Vishal which was also his maiden production venture. While ‘Kutti Puli’ was a moderate success, ‘Pandiya Naadu’ became a super hit withstanding tough competition from Ajith’s Arrambam.
Lakshmi Menon’s act of striking gold continues in 2014 as well. She got to share screen space with Vishal in his second production venture ‘Naan Sigappu Manithan’ directed by Thiru. The film released with enough pre release buzz did not fail to fulfil the expectation of the audience. It is still running in many screens across the state.
Lakshmi Menon’s upcoming films include ‘Jigarthanda’ with Siddharth, ‘Manjapai’ with Vimal, ‘Sippai’ with Gautham Karthik, and a Malayalam film titled ‘Avatharam’ all waiting to release in the forthcoming months. Apart from these, the young actress is in talks for a few more interesting offers.
