Looks like Raai Laxmi is celebrating Ganesha habba much ahead of the festival. The Jhansi heroine, currently shooting in Bengaluru, participated in sequences that have already got her into the festive mood. 

We caught up with Laxmi, who plays an investigative police officer in the film directed by PVS Guruprasad. “People always think I breeze in and out of Kannada films. But, I want to mention that I would not want to do films just for the sake of it. So even if there is a long gap between my films in Kannada, I am sure to leave my stamp behind,” she says.

In Jhansi, Laxmi will be in action mode, which she says is the first such attempt from her end. “I have been offered a lot of action-oriented scripts, but none impressed me, until director Guruprasad’s script came by. Just hearing the one line of the story, I fell for it. The director then followed it with an excellent narration that impressed me,” says Laxmi, adding “Jhansi represents strength and bravery, and that’s what got me interested in the project.”

Laxmi, who is known for her dancing abilities, will now try her hand at some stunts. “I am an actor for the masses, across south Indian industries. They have seen my jatak mataks. But in this film they will see me in a different role, which is sure to make a style statement of its own,” says the actor, who adds that the character will also have a glamorous side.
