Now it has become a fad to copy other language films. But if you ask the concerned directors they will refute this. They will simply say it is an inspiration. Director Vijay has earned the name of the copy cat while he completed his film Deiva Thirumagal. Now again he is copied a film in what he is directing now.
After Jayam Ravi’s Vanamagan, A L Vijay had directed the film titled Karu which has Sai Pallavi in the lead role. This film is ready for release. After this A L Vijay is directing a film titled Lakshmi which has Prabhu Deva in the lead role. Both of them had earlier joined hands in the film Devi which was a great hit. Aishwarya Rajesh is pairing with Prabhu Deva. This film is based on dance like the film ABCD. There are 12 songs in the film. Ditya of Super Dancer 2016 reality show is donning an important role in the film.
Sam CS is composing the music while Nirav Shah is handling the camera. Anthony is editing the film. This film which is being made in Tamil and Telugu is being produced under the banner Trident Arts in association with Pramod Films.
Prabhu Deva and Ditya are donning important roles in Lakshmi. This film is about a girl who participates in a dancing competition and wins the title.
In the year 2010, a film titled Karate Kid was released. In order to participate in a karate competition Jackie Chan trains a small kid Jaden Smith. Similarly Prabhu Deva trains Ditya to participate in the dance competition. The only difference is that in Karate Kid it deals with Karate and in Lakshmi it deals with dance.
