It is reported that the lanky and the not so-young-looking Lakshmi Menon might soon be paired up opposite actor-producer-director Sasikumar in his upcoming untitled film to be directed by Muthaiah of Komban and Kutti Puli fame.
Lakshmi Menon’s debut film was to be the Prabhu Solomon-directed Kumki but it wasn’t to be as Sundarapandian opposite Sasikumar released first, making it her debut film in Tamil. She later did Kutti Puli with Sasikumar. Both the films achieved decent success at the box-office. Muthaiah also cast Lakshmi Menon as the heroine opposite Karthi in his yet another hit film Komban.
Apparently viewing Lakshmi as his ‘lucky mascot’, it is reported that Muthaiah has decided to repeat (the now plump-looking) Lakshmi as the heroine in his upcoming film titled tentatively as Kodiveeran. Though Sasikumar hasn’t yet okayed the project, Muthaiah is hopeful of getting his need.
The script of the film is said to be laced heavily with brother-sister sentiment and the director is said to be looking for an appropriate actress to play Sasikumar’s sister.
