Lakshmi Manchu, who made her acting debut with Anaganaga O Dheerudu, has played different roles like evil sorceress and a village belle in her earlier films. The actress-turned-producer is now all set to play a highly glamorous role in upcoming Telugu drama Chandamama Kathalu, which features her as a supermodel. Interestingly, her pet dog will also appear with her in this movie.
Talking about Lakshmi Manchu's role in Chandamama Kathalu, director Praveen Sattaru says, "Since Lakshmi has not essayed any glamorous roles before I thought that she would perfectly fit the role of a super model. It's quite contrary to her previous roles and brings forth the side audiences have not seen from her in the past."
The actress, who was last seen in Vishnu Manchu's Doosukeltha, is very excited about her character in Chandamama Kathalu. Praveen Sattaru added, "Lakshmi was upbeat about the role because she hasn't played it before. Lakshmi's own pet dog Anand plays an important role alongside her."
Chandamama Kathalu also features Vijaya Naresh, Alluri Krishnam Raju aka Krishnudu, Aamani, Krishna Chaitanya and Richa Panai in important roles. The film's title is inspired by a children's book of the same name. Currently on the floors, it will come out next year.
