Seems desperation has taken its toll on Lakshmi Rai, who has not been able to making the front-line actress list despite having starred in all the South Indian languages (Tamil, Telugu, Kannad and Malayalam).
Attitude problem seems to be Rai’s impediment on her way to the top, critics feel. A few days back, she had gone on record that she was in love with an industrialist and that she would reveal his name in a few days’ time. As if it’s wrong for the print media to write about her, she has been going on a case-filing spree against some magazines including a regional weekly and a popular English daily.
Lakshmi Rai first filed a defamation suit against popular weekly Kumudam for publishing the news that she was close to a lanky hero(Vinay Rai), had demanded Rs 30 lakhs as compensation citing is caused ‘huge damage’ to her reputation of a ‘clean’ actress. The current status lawsuit is yet to be known, but both the magazine and the actress did get attention in the specific case for few days.
Last week, a leading English daily published some intimate pictures of Lakshmi Rai and our Controversial cricketer Sreesanth, exposing the links the cricketer had with models and actress . Claiming that those photos were taken a few years back and that publishing them now has dent her reputation, Rai has filed a case against the daily for ‘selective publication’.
Those photos were published by almost all dailies and why should she single out one particular magazine?
