The upcoming film, Julie 2, has been creating quite some buzz off late. It all started when we heard news of ex-CBFC chief Pahlaj Nihalani distributing the film. Known to harass filmmakers for their content breaching the laws, the sanskari chief broke the internet with news of him supporting an adult rated film.
Another aspect about the film that has got people talking is the female lead, played by Raai Laxmi. The south star will mark her Bollywood debut with this film, playing a role that was essayed by Neha Dhupia in part 1.
Raai Laxmi is a popular face in south, wheres she’s done 49 films till date. Something that’s lesser know about her, is the fact that she was romantically involved with Indian cricketer Mahendra Singh Dhoni for a brief period of time. Apparently, the actress is said to have dated the ex-Indian skipper, around 5 years ago.
She had previously confirmed rumours of the duo dating in an interview with Hindustan Times saying, “I was the brand ambassador for the team that he was a part of and we were together for less than a year. We had never committed to each other and never thought of getting married either, so I don’t understand why people would talk about us. It didn’t work for us, so we moved on.”
The actress was reportedly also anxious when the Sushant Singh Rajput starrer, MS Dhoni: The Untold Story released, as she thought her past with Dhoni would resurface through the film. Who would have thought right?
