Actress Raai Laxmi, who has a very special relationship with Raghava Lawrence, has been signed on by the filmmaker for his next directorial in Tamil. This film will go on floors after he completes shooting for ‘Muni 3’. Apparently, Laxmi is doing something really strange in preparation for her role in the film. She’s doing it because she was challenged by Lawrence before she was signed on for the project.

Laxmi is expected to look extremely thin for her role and for the same she required to literally starve. The actor who is known for her fair complexion and healthy build will have to go for a complete image makeover. “I have not only got to tan myself extensively, I’ll also have to lose weight and look like a skeleton, completely emaciated and hungry.

But she’s over the moon, despite it all. “I don’t mind doing any of this! For the first time I’ll be having a full-fledged performing role. No-one would have seen me this way before, so I just love the challenge! I’m so touched that Lawrence saw my potential in this way.”
