Laxmi’s Dreams Got Washed Away

Raai Laxmi, who started her career in 2005 with Karka Kasadara, pinned lot of hopes on her latest Bollywood erotic thriller, “Julie 2”. Popular in Tollywood with her sensuous item songs, Raai Laxmi hoped to change her fortunes by making a debut in Bollywood as lead heroine. However, Julie 2 could neither change her fortune nor could bring her any recognition in Bollywood.

After completing its first weekend the box office ticket windows, Julie 2 could only collect Rs 1.5 crore from all over India. Directed by Deepak Shivdasani and produced by Pahlaj Nihalani, Julie 2 could not match the expectations set by its earlier film, Julie. The result of this movie had completely washed away Laxmi’s heroine aspirations.

In fact, to get the offer in this film, Raai Laxmi had even went ahead and accepted the role that required a lot of skin show. Even though the actress reasoned it many times saying that the role is not sleazy but is shot aesthetically, audience could not connect to her versioning. People who watched the movie remarked that there is neither any erotic moments nor any thrilling moments in this erotic thriller.
