Actress Lakshmi Menon’s recent statements seemingly appear to be a calculated effort on her part to break the ‘myth’ that she is suitable only for ‘homely roles’.
The lanky actress, who shocked her peers and others in Kollywood by stating that she was ready to don the bikini in films provided the script demanded it, has dropped another low-profile ‘bomb’ by saying she had more boyfriends than girls as friends!
Lakshmi Menon is paired up opposite Vijay Sethupati for the first time in Rekka which releases in theatres this Friday (07th October). As if her statement on ‘bikini’ wasn’t enough, Lakshmi speaks about her choice of boyfriends as well.
“I had a wonderful time while shooting for Rekka. As per the script, Vijay Sethupathi abducts me and I eventually fall in love with him,” she says and adds that she won’t say any further about the film’s script.
“Unlike other actresses, I love reading gossips/rumours about myself; in fact, I feel happy when news items about me are published in print,” she said. “I used to get up as early as at 03:00 a.m. and go for a walk; I can even travel abroad alone but in India, when I venture out, I invariably go out with my boyfriends. In fact, I have more boyfriends than girls as friends!” Lakshmi concludes.
