Lakshmi Menon is one of the fastest rising stars in Kollywood, with back to back hits and her girl next door looks. The starlet who recently raised her pay grade and joined the prestigious 1 crore club for female actors, has now passed another milestone or rather opened an entirely new chapter in her career – she is singing in a movie!
So far, it has only been another Malayali actress who made it work with her captivating vocal abilities in Kollywood and that’s Ramya Nambeesan in Pandyanadu. Her song Fy Fy went on to become quite the chart topper, while Lakshmi had to be content with just being in the video of the song, dancing to the music.
Now Lakshmi has the mic or had it, as she sings in the movie Oru Oorla Rendu Raaja starring Vimal, Soori and Priya Anand. It will have to be seen if the actress’s voice is as mesmerizing as her acting skills.
In any case, her chosen full time career is going spectacularly well with her latest flick Manja Pai also getting a tremendously warm reception at the box office.
Now about Oru Oorla Rendu Raaja – interestingly, the music of the film is being composed by D Imman, and it was he who gave Ramya a chance to sing in Pandyanadu as well.
The movie, apart from Lakshmi’s vocals, has another attraction – if the sources are true, it is this movie that will feature the next item number from the Bollywood glamour queen Sunny Leone. In fact, it is for this movie that she was paid almost Rs 35 lacs for just performing in one song!
The film is being directed by Kannan.
