Lakshmi Menon after acting in Kumki donned the female lead role in the film titled Sundarapandian directed by S R Prabhakaran. This film gave her a good image because she was given a good role.
Because of this Lakshmi Menon has a high respect for S R Prabhakaran. S R Prabhakaran was keenly interested to give her the female lead role in his film Idhu Kathirvelan Kadhal which had Udhayanidhi Stalin in the lead role but unfortunately Nayanthara intervened and got that role.
In spite of this, Lakshmi Menon has mentioned that she will always give her preference to director S R Prabhakaran. S R Prabhakaran will once again direct a film which will have Udhayanidhi Stalin in the lead role. He has decided to cast Lakshmi Menon in the female lead role.
In case, Udhayanidhi backs out of this project, S R Prabhakaran has decided to immediately start the film which is to be produced by some other producer.
