Lakshmi Rai, the Karnataka girl is the latest flick of South
Indian cinema. Before starting her acting career, she worked as a model. Lakshmi
modeled for Bru coffee, Saravana’s stores and Fair and Lovely.
She made her debut in the 2005 Tamil film Karka Kasadara, but it
can't able to create any ripples at the box office. In 2005, several of her
films were released in other south Indian languages, though most did not do well
at the box office. Her debut films in South Indian languages are Kanchanamala
Cable TV (Telegu -2005), Shivaraj Kumar starrer Kannada movie Valmiki
(2005), Mohanlal starrer Malayalam movie 'Rock N Roll' (2007). And all these films can't give her a break through in
cinema. But her breakthrough in films came with 'Dhaam Dhoom' a Tamil Movie. Despite of being the
second heroine in the film her character Aarthi was widely appreciated by the
audience. Her other movies after 2007 are Malayalam films like Annan Thampi
(2008), Parunthu (2008), 2 Harihar Nagar (2009) etc.
This charming beauty, today, is one of the most sought-after
actresses in the Southern Cinema Industry.
