It's official! Dr Veeralakshmi, a Ph D scholar from Edinburg and daughter of actor Sarath Kumar, is going to make her film debut in a Simbu starrer movie Thiru Poda Thirumathi Podi – Dandanakka Jodi. Jointly Produced by Gemini Film Circuit and Shanaya Tele films, the film has another hot heroine Shreya. What factors forced a Ph D Scholar to choose Tamil films as her career?
The reason Varalakshmi revealed is very simple. Her passion towards the profession and the sleek and stylish script narrated by new director Vignesh Siva. After listening the script, Sarath Kumar also convinced and decided that Poda Podi is the perfect launch pad for his daughter.
