Things weren't looking too good for Lakshmi Rai in Kollywood before Kanchana happened and then Mankatha came along.
Though she doesn't have too many big offers to show, she has managed to hold her own and is part of the star-studded Thandavam featuring Vikram and Anushka in the lead roles.
Lakshmi Rai, who was with the crew that completed shoot in London, said (shooting there) was a dream.
The actress, who wasn't initially pencilled in for a role but was added to the film just prior to the London schedule, returned with the other members of the cast after shooting extensively in the UK and said it was great fun while they shot there. Lakshmi said she had a great time with the fun team and enjoyed the company of Vikram, whom she described as a gentleman.
Lakshmi said that the role that she had in this film, which also stars Anushka and Amy Jackson, was a satisfying one.
