Actress Laksha and some crew members of an upcoming film were reportedly held captive at a hotel in South Korea where they had gone to shoot for the film. Daughter of yesteryear’s ‘item girl’ Babitha, Laksha has taken after her mother and has been performing ‘item numbers’ in films as and when she gets the offer(s) to do so.
Laksha was reportedly signed up for an ‘item number’ in an upcoming film ‘Laali’ produced by Rangeela Productions. The crew was planning to shoot the song sequences and some more portions of the film in South Korea and had left from Chennai last week to Korea. A team of 29 ‘extra artistes’ joined the crew in Delhi on their way to Korea.
After shooting for a few days in Korea, the crew members were planning to return to Chennai when the team of ‘extra artistes’ disappeared all of a sudden. Alarmed, the crew informed the Indian Embassy in Korea about it which was then enquired into by the Korean Police. The Police has reportedly told the crew that it can’t leave the country before the missing ‘artistes’ are traced and are ‘forced’ to stay at the hotel.
