Varalaxmi had earlier opened up about the casting couch situation she earlier faced and how objectifying women is very much existing. In her open letter to the casting couch, she said, “Stop disrespecting women or get out!”
Varalaxmi was last seen in the movie ‘Tharai Thappattai’ alongside Sasikumar and directed by ‘Pithamagan’ fame Bala.
