Lakshmi Rai turns female cowboy
She celebrated her birthday a couple of days ago, and is looking forward to her Tamil flick, Irumbukottai Murattu Singam. Lakshmi Rai is eagerly awaiting audiences’ reaction to her character Pakki in this Simbudevan-directed cowboy film. “A cowboy film is being made in Kollywood after a very long time and I’m sure audiences will find it refreshing. Actually, I wasn’t really sure how it would fare at the box office when I first heard the script. But, the research that director Simbudevan had done on the subject assured me that it would turn out to be very interesting and fresh,” says an excited Lakshmi.
She’s also very kicked about her role in the film. “I love my character (Pakki) in this film; she matches my off-screen personality a lot. I don’t talk much in the film as a lot revolves around my looks and style,” she explains. The film is a multi-starrer, something that actresses usually shy away from. “There are a lot of people in the film, but I was sure from the beginning about Pakki and how important she was to the script. In any multi-starrer flick, I pick up roles that offer scope for performance,” says Lakshmi.
