After Lawrence made her look all the more voluptuous in Kanchana, Lakshmi Rai did not need to look back. Adhinayakudu, opposite Balakrishna, may not have given her a fillip in Tollywood, but she is gearing up for the release of Shiva Thandavam, the Vikram-Jagapathi-Anushka-Amy Jackson starrer.
But even Sandalwood is beckoning the Belgaum beauty, if one has to go by what sources say.
"Post the release of Kalpana, the Kannada version of her Tamil-Telugu hit Kanchana, Lakshmi Rai has been getting meaty roles in Kannada, which is her mother tounge as well," sources say.
They add that the actress is happy that she is able to bag such offers in her home industry. "But she is keen to make her presence felt in Kollywood and Tollywood too," they say.
