Southern actress Raai Laxmi to make her Bollywood debut
Southern actress Raai Laxmi is all set to make her entry into the Hindi Film Industry. The beauty just got the golden ticket to Bollywood and is not able to contain her excitement regarding the same.
Laxmi is said to make a special appearance in A.R. Murugadoss’s upcoming film ‘Akira’ which also stars the Dabbangg actress, Sonakshi Sinha in the lead role and cult film director Anurag Kashyap as the antagonist. The film is also said to be a remake of Tamil hit film ‘Mounaguru’.
Raai Laxmi, who couldn’t control her excitement of entering into Bollywood, tweeted, “Happy 2 announce my first debut in Bollywood as a guest appearance fr @ARMurugadoss sirs movie #Akira a great start”. In a series of tweets, Laxmi said,” it’s lovely to work wit a great humbled director like @ARMurugadoss sir having superb fun on the sets with the entire team kudos#Akira.”
“It was great experience 2 share my screen space with @anuragkashyap72Aa versatile actor director n multi talented,” she posted on a social media site.
Talking about how she got the offer, she adds, “One of the casting directors had suggested my name, and Murugadoss had called me. It is been a dream to work with him. He was convinced the role would suit me and I had no reason to refuse.” But since she is planning to venture into Bollywood, will a cameo make an impact? “Bollywood is different from the south film industries. A lot of big names are part of the project, including Anurag Kashyap,” says Laxmi.
‘Akira’ will also feature Sonakshi’s father and veteran actor Shatrughan Sinha in an important role. The film, a thriller, is currently on floors and is produced by Fox Star Studios.
