Varalakshmi is the daughter of actor Sarath Kumar, born to him and his first wife Chaaya. The lovely-looking Varalakshmi is presently starring in her debut film titled Poda Podi opposite Simbu. The shooting of the film is progressing briskly and is likely to hit the screens in the first quarter of the year 2012.
In order to remain in the reckoning, Varalakshmi has decided to star in commercials as and when she finds time. She has recently starred in a commercial along with Sarath Kumar. Talking about the commercial, Varalakshmi says “I shot for a commercial recently with my father Sarath Kumar. I can never forget this as acting along my dad had been my dream right from my childhood.
“I have watched my dad many times on the sets during the making of his films. I have always admired him for his commitment and acting credentials. Yet, acting with him in the commercial was an emotional affair for me. At first, I couldn’t concentrate properly but dad asked me to take it easy and concentrate on the job. After he lightened up the atmosphere with his witty one-liners, I went ahead and completed the shooting of the commercial.
“I’m waiting for the day when I and Sarath are cast in the roles of daughter and father in a film. Playing the real-life role in reel would be a bit of a challenge, I presume. My Poda Podi opposite Simbu is likely to be released in February next year. I’m getting to listen to many scripts each day and shall soon decide about my next project and would be making a formal announcement in this regard,” concludes Varalakshmi.
