Taking a cue from seniors and established actresses such as Nayantara and Trisha, the lanky Raai Laxmi is said to have decided to play only the lead roles in films from now onwards.
The actress is all set to make her debut in Hindi films as heroine with the upcoming film titled as Julie 2 (sequel to the 2004 hit film Julie) which is to release in theatres across the country in December. Deepak Shivdasani is the director and producer of the film.
Laxmi, who debuted in Tamil films in 2005 with Karka Kasadara, never got to pair up opposite frontline heroes such as Ajith, Suriya, Dhanush or Vijay and has only been spotted in special ‘item number’ songs in her last few Telugu, Hindi and Tamil films.
She holds the view that she has it in her to play the lead roles in heroine-oriented scripts but ironically, not many film-makers seem to share her point of view!
