Varalaxmi Sarath Kumar has been on a signing spree. 2017 was a good year for Varalaxmi with notable performances in films such as Vikram Vedha, Nibunan and Sathya. In Sathya, the Tamil remake of Telugu thriller Kshanam, she played a negative character and her performance impressed audiences and critics alike. In 2018, she impressed with four releases including two big ticket projects such as Sandakozhi 2 and Sarkar. Incidentally, she had a character with shades of gray in Sandakozhi 2 which fetched her positive reviews.She also made her television debut with a show called Unnai Arindhaal on Jaya TV, which discuses problems in the society and also help people introspect themselves. Proving herself by going against the grain and picking unique roles, Varalaxmi has made a mark for herself.

The actor, who recently began shooting for Danny and announced her Telugu debut, Thenali Rama Krishna BA BL, has already started working on another Tamil project. Titled Kannitheevu, the multi-starrer project also stars an all-female lead cast featuring Aishwarya Dutta of Bigg Boss fame, Ashna Zaveri and Subiksha in the lead roles. Talking about the film, director Sundar Balu told Cinema Express: “Kannitheevu is a crime thriller. It has no connection to the classic tale, and the story does not take place on an island either. The script gives equal importance to all the four female leads. We are in talks with a major male star to play the antagonist in the film."

The film has cinematography by Chitti Babu, music by Arrol Corelli and editing by Lawrence Kishore. This year, Varalaxmi has nearly half a dozen projects in her kitty. Her next release will be Velvet Nagaram, in which she has played a journalist. She also has Neeya 2 with Raai Laxmi, Kanni Raasi and Kaatteri in the offing.
