Character actor Lakshmi Ramakrishnan who played mom to Karthi in Naan Mahaan Alle and even shaved her head for a strong role in Yuddham Sei, has now turned director.
The lady started her career in Tamil with Pirivom Sandippom and later did a role in Poi Solla Porom from when the cinematic journey started full swing in Kodambakkam. Now she is thirty three movies old here.
The actor has now turned director with the film Arokanam. Says Lakshmi about her new venture and turn in career, “Aarokanam which is being produced by AVA Production and Monkey Creative Lab, is nearing completion now. At first we started it only for film festivals. But later on it grew like a commercial movie. Now Arokanam can compete in film festivals and in the commercial race as well. We see many movies, most of them repeat the same old stories. We are doing Arokanam differently and honestly. Tamil audiences never fail to recognize good movies for example Mounaguru. In the same way they will surely accept and celebrate Aarokanam too.”
