Actress Lakshmi Gopalsamy, the Bangalore based dancer turned
actress, has refused to act as Trisha's mother in her forthcoming
film. The Malayalam ex-heroine initially agreed to play Trisha's
mom in Radha Mohan directed film 'Abhiyum Naanum', produced by
Prakash Raj. However in a last minute withdrawal on the day she was
to report on the sets at Munnar, Lakshmi backed out!
She did not want to play mother to Trisha. The actress says:
"I'm still young and only two years older to Trisha. In fact now
I'm playing lead roles against superstars Mohanlal and Mammootty in
Malayalam film. For me, it is not a right decision to accept mother
or sister roles." Aishwarya (former actress Lakshmi's daughter)
another ex- heroine has stepped in to play the role Lakshmi
Gopalsamy was to play.
