Lakshmi Menon Of ‘Kumki’ Says No To Intimate Scenes
Lakshmi Menon has made a quick mark for herself in Tamil filmdom thanks to successful movies like Sundarapandian and Kumki. She has emerged as a capable actress who is more suited for village belle roles and even her future films like Kuttipuli and Manja Pai would show her in the same light.
When asked, if she would be interested in doing movies with the reigning stars like Vijay, Ajith and Suriya, she says that she isn’t interested in spite of nurturing such thoughts. She reasons that she would be required to be the typical commercial heroine in movies opposite big stars and glamour. She reasons that some intimate scenes and revealing costumes would be a part and parcel of such roles and she says she would not be comfortable doing them.
She is a very practical actress and realizes that she cannot change the industry and feels that she isn’t made for such roles. All she hopes to be is known as a good actress even if that means a limited shelf life in the industry. Very few actresses are able to draw such a clear line and having drawn the line are able to live within those lines.
