Varalaxmi had acted in the Tamil films Poda Podi and Thara Thappattai for which she gained incredible laurels for her excellent performances. She made her debut in Malayalam through the film Kasaba which had Mammootty in the lead role. After this, she was expecting offers from Kerala. Accordingly she got an opportunity to act in the Malayalam remake of the Tamil film Appa directed by Samuthirakani but she quit the film few days after the poojai was performed. At this juncture, she has been signed for the female lead role in a film which has Mammootty in the lead role.
Ajay Vasudev who had directed Mammootty in Raajathi Raja is directing the film. This director has also written the story of the super hit Malayalam film Puli Murugan. Initially Rai Lakshmi was approached for the female lead role. Since she did not give her nod, this opportunity went to Varalaxmi.
When it comes to Kollywood Varalaxmi Sarathkumar has now completed shooting for Nibunan opposite Action King Arjun and Prasanna in lead roles. She is currently shooting for Sibiraj’s Sathya, a remake of blockbuster hit movie ‘Kshanam’, where she will be playing a police officer and Remya Nambeesan plays the other heroine.
