Lakshmi Rai in smiles

Lakshmi Rai is having a gala time in Tamil and Telugu cinema.

She awaits the release of Thandavam, in which she plays a meaty role. Basking in the glory of Mankatha’s success, Lakshmi Rai is hoping that Telugu version of Thandavam would do her a lot of good.

Meanwhile, sources say that she is keen to do movies in Telugu too parallely. She has signed on her next venture in Telugu with accalimed filmmaker Kodi Ramakrishna.

She says, ‘It is a privilege for me to work with a director like Kodi Ramakrishna. He has made landmark films like Arundhati and his women characters have authorbacked roles.’
