Raai Laxmi has done something which not many Tamil actresses would be daring enough to do: she has gone ‘topless’, albeit not from the front-side’!
Raai Laxmi’s bold photograph was released in a promotional still in connection with the upcoming Bollywood film Julie 2, sequel to the 2004 film Julie which had actress Neha Dhupia sizzling in a sex-worker’s role. Raai Laxmi is debuting in Bollywood with Julie 2.
This would be a contrasting role for Laxmi, whose Sowkarpettai, a horror film, is to release in theatres next Friday. The promotional photographs of Julie 2, released as part of the ‘first look’, have set temperatures soaring as Raai Laxmi has just covered her assets by a book while lying on the sand in a beach in one photo while the other shows her topless (from the backside, of course!) with a saree covering her back.
Though Sonakshi Sinha (remember superstar Rajinikanth’s Lingaa heroine?) is also essaying a prominent role in Julie 2, she wasn’t spotted in yesterday’s ‘first look’.
Laxmi’s still gives ample hint as to what to expect from the film directed by Deepak Shivdasani. The film is scheduled to release in theatres in August.
