For the first time, Varalakshmi is sharing the screen space with her father Sarathkumar and stepmother Radikaa in a film titled ‘Peranthal Parasakthi’. Interestingly, it was Varalakshmi who wanted Sarath and Radikaa on board.
“When director Om Vijay narrated the script to me, he had a different star cast in mind. But I could only picture my dad and Radikaa aunty in it; only they can bring in the kind of local flavour to the roles,” she was quoted as saying by TOI.
Stating that the drirector was initially a little sceptical, Varalakshmi added: “But I told him that I would talk to them. Their roles are extremely powerful and I am grateful my dad and Radikaa ma’am agreed to do the film. I am sure their performances are going to be outstanding.”
Known for making experiments, Varalakshmi, who played a strong negative role opposite Vishal in ‘Sandakozhi 2’, has dubbed on her own for her maiden Telugu flm, ‘Tenali Ramakrishna BABL’.
“Dubbing for #TenaliRamaKrishnaBABL,” she wrote, adding: “@sundeepkishan its hilarious….cant wait for you tweeps to watch it..!!” She also shared four pictures from the recording studio.
