During the making of ‘Don’ and ‘Panchakshari,’ the friendship grown up between choreographer-actor-director-music composer Raghava Lawrence and heroine Anushka was sought to be taking the form of a film ‘Kanchana,’ the sequel to scary ‘Muni.’ Later, Lawrence disappeared from the industry and was busy with his philanthropic activities.
After much deliberation, ‘Kanchana’ is known to have gone on the floors in Tamil version. ‘I’ve put in a lot of groundwork and I am happy to have started work on the project finally. Kanchana will be entirely different from Muni and even more entertaining. Anushka is not part of the film. I retained most of the artists from Muni, including Kovai Sarala for Kanchana. Though Raj Kiran will not be in this movie, I have roped in Lakshmi Rai to play the major role,’ said Lawrence.
So, Anushka is all replaced by sex bomb Lakshmi Rai for this thriller movie. Telugu version of this movie will be worked out during the dubbing stages.
