Actress Raai Laxmi will be seen playing the lead role in Julie 2 which is said to be based on the life of an actress who made it big in South Indian cinema in mid 90s and later moved to a different language industry. Julie 2 is directed by Deepak Shivdasani and will mark Raai Laxmi’s debut in Bollywood and also happens to be her 50th film, which she is quite kicked about. In an exclusive chat with Pinkvilla, Raai Laxmi speaks about her bucket list in terms of acting in Bollywood, her experience of working on the film and more.
Speaking about the story of Julei 2, Raai Laxmi says, “Yes, it is a real life story. When Deepak Shivdasani narrated the story, he didn’t mention that it was a real story but a lot of situations from the film, I myself could connect to them. And when we sat down to discuss the story, that’s when I could figure out that it was inspired from the life of an actress, which I think everybody will find out after watching the film.”
Speaking about her wish to work in Bollywood, Laxmi says, “Who wouldn’t have a wish list in Bollywood? Everybody wants to act with the ‘Khans’. I have grown up watching their films. I’m looking forward to get a chance to work with the ‘Khans’ and all the respected actors in Bollywood.”
