It’s now confirmed that the young Lakshmi Menon is doing a lip lock with Vishal in Naan Sigappu Manithan.
We got it straight from the horse's mouth, when producer G Dhananjayan of UTV Motion Pictures confessed this at the JFW Women’s Summit in Chennai. He was one of the panel members long with others from film industry, when a debate on the subject- Objectification of Women in the Media was on.
Said Dhananjayan: “Today girls are willing to do a kissing scene if the script demands, like our heroine Lakshmi Menon, without any reservations went ahead and agreed to do a lip lock with hero Vishal in Naan Sigappu Manithan as it is an integral part of the story”
Lakshmi (16) who is writing her 11th standard exams doing a lip-lock is sure to rake in some media attention. Earlier, Gautham Karthik- Thulasi lip-lock scene which was shot by Mani Ratnam in Kadal and used for promos was missing in the film when it released!!
So we will have to wait and watch if Vishal-Lakshmi lip-lock is just a publicity gimmick or not?
