Lakshmi Menon had entered cinema when she was still in school. As a result, the actress was reportedly losing out on offers, due to her academic schedule.
She is said to have taken correspondence and filmed for movies like ‘Vedhalam’ and ‘Miruthan’. However, the ‘Kumki’ star has now decided to concentrate entirely on cinema.
According to sources, “In what she considers as her second innings, the actress has declared that she is open to all kinds of roles”.
“She wants to shed her homely tag and opt for glamour roles too. The latest being ‘Rekka’, in which she will be seen as an urban lass”, added sources.
It may be noted that it was the traditional look that had won her several fans and successive films like ‘Kumki’ and ‘Sundarapandian’.
It remains to be seen how she succeeds in her new avatar.
