Raai Laxmi: ‘Akira’ Opened doors in Bollywood for me

Raai Laxmi might be a new name to Hindi film viewers but the actress is a household name down south. The actress, who will soon be making her Bollywood debut with ‘Julie 2’, says her small role in the recently-released ‘Akira’ paved the way for her entry into Bollywood.

She was also recently seen playing a cameo in A. R. Murugadoss’ Akira. “That is how the doors opened for me in Bollywood, paving way for Julie 2. Julie 2 is also very different from the original that had Neha Dhupia in the titular role. She added that the film is not just about skin show, but has plenty of scope for acting as well.

The actress also indicated her desire to work in other regional languages apart from Tamil. She said that she was looking at scripts in Punjabi, Bhojpuri and Bengali.  Is that a sign that she’s not getting a lot of offers in Tamil cinema? “Far from it. I keep getting horror films though. I’ve done an item number in Lawrence’s Motta Shiva Ketta Shiva should win me more friends in the industry which gave me my first break in Karka Kasadara. That should bring me in the reckoning again.”
