Actress Varalaxmi Sarathkumar, known to air views boldly on issues of concern to the society, has once again done a plain-talk which few of her contemporaries would attempt.
“Sex-for-films (expecting sex from the actress in return for film offers) offer still exists in Kollywood; it is indeed disgusting. This is to be rooted out soon,” the 33-year old actress said.
As reported earlier, Varalaxmi is one of the busiest actresses around with close to 10 films in her kitty. She doesn’t mind playing yet significant roles, negative characters, etc. as long as the roles appeared to satisfy her hunger for acting.
“I love challenging scripts and sign along dotted lines to star in a film after I get to know the significance in the script of characters offered to me I took up the offer to star in Pamban as I loved the prospect of starring in a film with my father; this has been my dream for a long time. The film’s shoot commenced some time back. I’m also happy to be starring in Vijay’s upcoming film.
“I’m a director’s actress and I don’t have any issues with my directors,” Varalaxmi said and added that the ‘sex-for-film’ offer should be rooted out at once in the industry.
