Actor Raai Laxmi—who is one of the most talented names in Southern cinema—is currently shooting for her next big Tamil film Neeya 2. And, needless to say, the star is quite excited about being a part of the film. During a recent chat with a leading daily, she opened up about Neeya 2 and said that is not a sequel to the 1979 release Neeya but belongs to the same genre. She also confirmed that she has some scenes with the other heroines—Varalaxmi and Catherine Tresa.
“Neeya 2 has elements of fantasy, thriller, love, etc. This, too, is a ‘snake film’ like the yesteryear flick. I will be seen in three appearances in the movie; one among them will have a ‘naagin’ look. All the three heroines in the movie appear in different time periods — present, past and future. However, I have combination scenes with the other two,” she added.
Well, we wish her good luck for Neeya 2 and hope that it turns out to be a success. Interestingly, 2017 was a pretty eventful year for Raai Laxmi. She made her Bollywood debut with the Pahlaj Nihalani –produced Julie 2 and added a new dimension to her career. The film featured her in a bold avatar and also had Ravi Kishan in a key role. Unfortunately, it did not quite live upto expectations and failed at the box office. Talking about it, she had said that its bold scenes were an integral part of the narrative.
“Basically, it is a story of an actress and her life. It required certain kinds of glam scenes, which are justified in the film. I knew about it even before the film started. The film’s message is loud — if a girl has to achieve in life, she has to meet and confront a lot of men,” she had said.
At present, besides Neeya 2, she also has a film with megastar Mammootty in her kitty.
