Sowkarpettai is a film which has Srikanth and Lakshmi Rai in the cast. John Peter is composing the music while Srinivasa Reddy is handling the camera. The film which is being produced under the banner Shalom Studios is being directed by V S Vadivudayan.
The film was launched yesterday. Lakshmi Rai while speaking said, “After Aranmanai I am getting lots of ghost films. I am not interested to do stereotyped roles. I am acting in this film because there is scope for acting.
Apart from this the film will help me break my glamour image. Whenever I come to Chennai, people ask me about Trisha. I was very friendly with her. It is true that I am not friendly with her now. I cannot believe this myself. I don’t know the reason for splitting. Let it be within us two.” It is understood that Lakshmi Rai was in love with Varun Manian who is going to marry Trisha now.
