Varalakshmi, daughter of Sarath Kumar, is awaiting the release of her maiden venture Poda Podi, to hit the screens on Deepavali day. She plays STR’s ladylove in the movie, directed by debutant Vignesh Shiva.
Currently busy acting with Vishal in Madha Gaja Raja, Varalakshmi says, ‘I agreed to do Poda Podi because the story was fantabulous’. She plays Tamil girl brought up in London. STR visits London and falls for her. She says, ‘I don the role of a salsa dancer. All credit should go to my whole unit and STR and Vignesh were co-operative and encouraged me a lot’.
