Lakshmi Menon made her debut in the Tamil film Kumki. There was a good response for this film. Her acting was much spoken about. After the success of the film, Lakshmi Menon was flooded with offers.
The films Sundarapandian, Naan Sigappu Manithan, Manja Pai, Jigarthanda and Komban in which she donned the female lead role were great hits. Moreover she donned the role of Ajith’s sister in the film Vedhalam. This film turned to be a super duper hit.
Though Lakshmi Menon is a Malayalee, she was not able to shine in Malayalam films like in Tamil. In fact she made her debut as an actress in Malayalam. She donned the second heroine in her first Malayalam film but this film was a flop. After this she debuted in Kumki.
At a time when she was a successful Tamil actress she had acted in a Malayalam film titled Avataram in the year 2014. She pinned her hopes in this film but this film turned out to be a flop. Because of this she has been refusing Malayalam films.
