Lakshmi Manchu wants to be a villain again

Actress-producer Lakshmi Manchu is working furiously on the pre-production of her Tamil-Telugu bilingual, Maranthein Mannithen (MM). Shes also busy preparing for the big launch of the audio of the film, which will be graced by Ilaiyaraaja and his family. I cant wait to see the kind of response the songs will have here. Five of the tracks are same in both the languages and Raaja uncle has reworked on one of his old tracks from Tamil and Telugu, which will be the highlight, added Lakshmi, veteran actor Mohan Babus daughter.

The actress started her career in Hollywood, working on prime time TV shows like Las Vegas and Desperate Housewives. After acting in short films like Perfect Lives, she began her stint in Tollywood as producer. Now, her TV shows, like Prematho Mee Lakshmi and Luck Unte Lakshmi, have made her a household name.

Producer, actor and TV host ask her which role she prefers the most, and the popular socialite of Hyderabad shoots back, Acting! Your job is over by the end of the day. Producing films is a big gamble, and the odds dont favour you. But I will keep going until I fall flat on my face. Lakshmi is happy that she recently received the prestigious Nandi for Best Villain for her role in Anaganaga O Dheerudu. Im the only woman to receive an award in this category till date. Many asked me to reconsider playing the evil queen in my debut film, but how many would get an opportunity to be part of Walt Disneys first production in south India? If I am asked to play a villain again, I would do it gladly! she winded up
