Lakshmi Manchu, the daughter of Telugu star Mohan Babu, who made her mark as a producer and actor, is now playing the female lead in Mani Ratnam’s forthcoming Tamil film Kadal.
According to sources, she plays a powerful negative role and speaks the Tirunelveli dialect in Kadal. Though the story of the film is under wraps, it is being said that Mani Ratnam, after the debacle of Ravan, has created a super story which will again bring the ace film maker back into reckoning. This film will have Telugu and Malayalam versions also.
Lakshmi Manchu has plans for producing two films in Telugu. The details are awaited. She has signed up maestro Ilayaraja for one of her films.
