Here is Lakshmi Menon's latest interview to The Times of India

The Tamil experience

Too good! I absolutely love it in Kollywood. It is a well-known fact that cinema is a major part of Tamil audiences' life. They are quite upfront when it comes to positive or negative feedback. I remember an instance where a guy came to see me while I was shooting for Pandiya Nadu. We were inside a temple in Kumbakonam. I was bewildered to see this person being super ecstatic upon seeing me. He jumped, galloped and did quite a few crazy things and was sweating profusely as I offered him a hand shake! Similarly, once a marine engineer came to meet me at the hotel I stayed in Chennai. Apparently, his mobile phone and room are full of my pictures! It is great to have such fans and I'm more than glad.

Being a bold, mature actress

I feel that unlike in the past, children these days are a lot more mature to handle their life. It's not just me, but even my friends are like that. Especially since I am part of such an industry, maturity and boldness to understand situations and stand by your decisions come over naturally.

The lip-lock with Vishal in Naan Sigappu Manithan

When the film's director Thiru Sir narrated the script, I understood it is an important sequence. I took it very professionally and had no problem shooting it. I am someone who is addicted to acting, and to do justice to a role of substance, I do not mind acting such scenes.

Your much-talked about cheek scar

It is on my left cheek and appeared after a schoolmate pushed me down. I am happy that the Tamil industry considers it a sign of luck! I am generally in favour of actors taking extra steps to augment their looks for films, but personally I am a lazy teenager who does nothing of that sort.

The parallel student life

I am doing my Plus One in Kochi. I was an extremely studious kid until Class VIII. Once films happened, studies took a backseat. However, I have no plans to give up studies completely for films. My dream is to pursue a bachelor's degree in English literature in Maharaja's College, Kochi. If time permits, I also want to try a hand at Civil Services.

Actor Siddharth's comment on your quick grasping power

My plus point is that I can connect with what the director wants, quite fast. I am happy for that comment from Siddharth Sir. I also like singing; my grandmother is a music teacher. I might try a hand at playback singing as well soon, though the details cannot be divulged now.

Will you do an item number?

As a viewer, I definitely enjoy item numbers. However, I am not comfortable wearing revealing clothes, as I feel they don't suit my body type. I make clear specifications about my dress code before signing any film.
