Actress Lakshmi Menon is said to have started hitting the gym hard so as to reduce oodles of flesh around her waist and hips so as to be back in reckoning to bag new film offers from producers and directors.
Hailing from a suburb in Kochi, Kerala, Lakshmi Menon debuted as heroine in Tamil films with Prabhu Solomon’s Kumki though Sasikumar’s Sundarapandian released first in theatres, making it back-to-back hits for her in 2012. She followed them up with successive hit films, thereby acquiring a typical ‘family girl’ image though she went out of the way and locked lips with Vishal for in Naan Sigappu Manithan.
This year too, she has already had a couple of hit films in Miruthan (opposite ‘Jayam’ Ravi) and Rekka (opposite Vijay Sethupathi). Though she looked okay in Miruthan, her almost obese looks in Rekka made her a point of ridicule in social networking sites as her fans and detractors did everything possible to bring to her attention that she has been putting on weight in a meaningless manner.
Realizing that if she continues in the same mode, she won’t get enough films, Lakshmi is said to be hitting the gym hard twice in a day so as to acquired a slender frame!
