Never heard of Goddess Laxmi dancing, says Raghavendar Rao to Vimala


Actress Vimala Raman will be seen in the role of Goddess ‘Laxmi’ in veteran director Raghavendar Rao’s ‘Om Namo Venkatesaya’. Expressing her happiness she says that she is lucky to have got an opportunity to work with Nagarjuna and Raghavendar Rao.
Vimala Raman is a trained Bhartanatyam dancer. She reportedly expressed her desire to her filmmaker Raghavendar rao to utilise her dancing abilities in the movie. The director cleared to her that it was not possible since there was no record of Goddess Laxmi dancing in any of the Hindu scriptures.
