Varalaxmi Sarathkumar to play Karakattam dancer
Chennai: Varalaxmi Sarathkumar will be seen playing the role of a Karakattam dancer in Bala Pazhanisaamy's upcoming film. The actress will undergo special dance training for her role.
Karakattam is an ancient folk dance in which the dancer performs with a pot on the head.
"Varalaxmi has been signed for the film. She is a trained dancer and I thought someone with the dance skills only can even attempt this role. She will undergo training in Karakattam soon. I'm sure her passion for dance will help her to play this role with ease," Bala told US.
Varalaxmi, who is a trained Salsa dancer, made her cinematic debut with 2012 Tamil romantic-drama 'Poda Podi'. She also starred in 'Madha Gaja Raja', which is yet to release.
Sasikumar will play the male lead in the film, which will have music by maestro Illayaraja, who has already composed twelve songs.
"He composed twelve songs in less than a week. The music will be the highlight of the film. It will take back audience to a long forgotten era of folk music in Tamil Nadu," he said.
