Lakshmi Menon, who is the fastest rising star in Tamil cinema has decided to do a Malayalam film.
She will play the heroine opposite Dileep in his forthcoming film to be directed by top commercial director Joshiy.
Lakshmi had made her entry into films in Vinayan`s Raghuvinte Swantham Rasiya but shot to fame in Tamil with super-hit films like Sundarapandian, Kumki, Kuttipuli and Pandiyanadu. She had also acted in a Malayalam film, Ideal Couple, but the film failed to get noticed.
Dileep, who is currently wrapping up Rafi`s Ring Master, will join the Joshiy film by early March. The film has been scripted by Vyasan Edavanakkad, who has earlier scripted The Metro.
Lakshmi has Manja Pai, Sippai, Jigarthanda, Naan Sigappu Manithan and Vasantha Kumaran on floors in Tamil and is one of the busiest actors.
