Lakshmi Manchu, known for her role in the American TV series, Las Vegas, is in Alleppey shooting for a Hollywood film titled Basmati Blues.
“It is a cross cultural film and has both Hollywood and Indian actors but I’m afraid I can’t reveal more about it now,” says Lakshmi Manchu.
A musical and the debut of director Dan Baron, Basmati Blues is being shot in Los Angeles, Mumbai and Kerala. Apart from Lakshmi, the film features Brie Larson, Donald Sutherland and Utkarsh Ambudkar and has been described as “a comedy about love, adventure, and a grain of rice that could change the world.”
Apart from the Hollywood film, Lakshmi Manchu is busy with a Tamil and Telugu project as well.
Lakshmi Manchu nightmarish experience
Looks like it was a scene that was directly lifted from a Tamil film. Lakshmi Manchu had a nightmarish experience when she had gone to Kerala to shoot for her upcoming Hollywood flick Basmati Blues.
The actress/producer was in Kerala at the famous backwaters of Alappuzha. She was on a canoe ride at the Alapuzzha Lake along with another actor, when all of a sudden, the canoe flipped over and she was thrown off the boat. Since she couldn’t get on the boat, she had to swim almost a kilometer and she was rescued by a fishing boat later.
Apparently, the actress who has come out of this shocking stint wrote in her microblogging site -“Was quite scary not knowing what was in the water. Snakes are a common sight there. Was saved by a fishing boat! It was very intense.
Thank God for my swimming lessons! It was dark and creepy being in the water. All the scary `Water’ movies came to my mind. Ahhhhh. Glad we are safe and alive to tell the story! Bruises and scratches but all well.“
She has also posted a picture of her in a boat too.
