Lakshmi Menon made her debut in a homely avatar in Kumki and continued to maintain that image in her following films. However, she broke the homely image after Vishal’s Pandiya Naadu. She also did a lip lock scene in Naan Sigappu Manithan.
She has announced that she is ready to lock lips, if it is essential for the story and she demands a fee of Rs. 10 lakh extra for kissing scenes.
It is rumoured that some of the heroes call her and make fun of her asking her, if her kiss costs 10 lakh rupees. Lakshmi Menon retorts saying that “Yes it is and that is why the producers are booking me paying 10 lakh rupees extra.”
