Raai Laxmi, who was earlier known as Laxmi Rai when she started her career in movies down South, is all set to make her debut as the leading lady in Bollywood with the long delayed Julie 2. But this is not her first movie in Bollywood, though. Earlier she has a supporting role in Sonakshi Sinha’s Akira, which was more of an extended cameo.
However, Julie 2 would be her fully fledged role, and she is going bold to make sure maximum eye-balls are attracted. Julie 2 is the sequel to 2004 movie, Julie that starred Neha Dhupia in the lead role along with Sanjay Kapoor, Yash Tonk and Priyanshu Chatterjee. The first movie made headlined for its bold kissing and lovemaking scenes (it was while promoting this movie, that Neha Dhupia had once said ‘Only s*x and Shah Rukh Khan sells!’).
Julie was directed by Deepak Shivdasani, who is now making the sequel. And going by the first teaser, he is carrying the tradition of ‘s*x sells’ with the sequel. The teaser doesn’t give a proper glimpse of Raai Laxmi or her co-stars, but shows enough skin to let even the ignorant know what the movie is all about.
Julie 2 marks Raai Laxmi’s 50th film as well. Earlier speaking to media, she has said this about her role in the movie, ” I will be seen in 96 different outfits. Also, I was asked to lose and then put on weight for this film. For the first look of the film, I had to lose 10-11 kilos and soon after, I had to gain more than what I had to lose.”
Julie 2 also stars Rati Agnihotri, Sahil Salathia, Aditya Srivastava, Ravi Kishen, Pankaj Tripathi and Nishikant Kamant in key roles. The film unfolds dark secrets of Bollywood and exposes the naked truth of Underworld and Politics.
