Lakshmi Manchu played a vital role in ace director Mani Ratnam's latest release, Kadal! We hear that the song 'Nenjukulla', which became a major hit, was originally picturised on her, but in the final output, she was cut out of the song, and a few other scenes! In Kadal, the song comes in the background, with the lead pair of Gautham and Thulasi on screen! However, Lakshmi seems to know better, and is not deterred by this! She appears to have said that the director would have had some important reason for chopping her portions, and also that she was very grateful to have been a part of the movie! She has also said that she would do better in her next venture! Sweet of you Lakshmi!
