If everything goes well, Lakshmi Rai will step into the shoes of
Balan. Yes, she is likely to star in the remake of Bollywood
hit movie Ishqiya, which also starred Naseeruddin
Shah, Arshad Warsi and Salman Shahid in the lead roles.
Lakshmi Rai has confirmed the news that the offer to do Vidya
Balan's character in Tamil and Malayalam has come her way. She has
seen the film and all three characters have impressed her.
According to her, Vidya is brilliant in her role and it would be a
challenging character for any actress to enact.
The Mankatha girl admits that she has not done such
role till date and such offers come very rarely for an actress.
Lakshmi Rai claims that if she does the film, it will benefit her
career and the glam doll loves to enact the role famously made by
Lakshmi Rai adds that the forthcoming flick will not be a
scene-to-scene copy of Ishqiya and the story will be
tweaked to suit the local sensibilities. However, the actress has
said that it is too early to talk about the film. Sources say that
she has not signed on the dotted lines yet.
Her forthcoming films are Aranmanai and Irumbu
Kuthirai in Tamil.
