Speaking to a daily, Lakshmi Rai has clarified the rumours, which claimed that she has already signed the film. The actress says that though she was approached and given the script to read, the Mankatha girl did not give a nod to Bhindi Bazaar because she wants to make it big in Bollywood.
Lakshmi Rai wants her first Bollywood impression to be best. Hence, the actress opted out of the project. Meanwhile, she is busy with the Kannada version of Kanchana (Muni) starring Upendra and a Telugu movie Adhinayakadu featuring Balakrishna.
