2004 saw a rage when Neha Dhupia starrer Julie took the box office with a smash. Probably, one of the few movies of that time which featured an actress going topless and doing ‘bold scenes’. Well, apart from the fame, Neha was also targeted for her bold acting and this is one of the reasons why she didn’t want to take up the sequel when it was offered to her.
The sequel of this movie has South Indian actress Raai Laxmi as the lead. Now here comes the breaking news that the much Sansakari Pahlaj Nihalani is one of the distributors of this film, which portrays the actress in a super hot avatar. We wonder how would he manage keeping his eyes and ear close!
Raai Laxmi is also being famous for her alleged affair with skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni and here we have all you need to know about it!
A leading national daily had quoted Raai saying, “I was the brand ambassador for the team that he was a part of and we were together for less than a year. We had never committed to each other and never thought of getting married either, so I don’t understand why people would talk about us. It didn’t work for us, so we moved on.
I’ve begun to believe that my relationship with Dhoni is like a stain or a scar which won’t go away for a long time.” She also mentioned that it was a sad moment when M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story did not have her bit in the movie.
Talking about Raai’s journey in the film industry, her first film was Karka Kasadara in 2005, when she was 15 years old.
Along with Tamil movies, she has also done Telugu and Malayalam films. Her performance in Tamil romantic thriller Dhaam Dhoom, got her nominated for the Filmfare Award for Best Supporting Actress.
Raai Laxmi also had a well-praised negative role in Mankatha, which has a story behind it. Earlier, she was offered the lead role for it which was later offered to Trisha. However, the rumor has it that due to the switching and replacements, Trisha and Raai had an ugly spat, which both the actresses have been denying ever since.
Julie 2 remains her first Bollywood movie, playing a lead role but prior to this, Raai Laxmi has also been spotted in Sonakshi Sinha starrer Akira in which she played the role of Maya.
