Actor Varalaxmi Sarathkumar, who has done a series of films in which she has substantial roles, has launched the first look of her upcoming film Shakti.

With cropped hair and a cool pair of aviators, Varalaxmi looks amazing in the posters. The film will be directed by Priyadhaarshini.

The tagline for the film says, "Some fear fire. Some simply become it."

Produced by Papertale Pictures, the film's first look has won appreciation from Twitterati already. Though she is not in uniform, the poster suggests that Varalaxmi might be playing a cop. Or perhaps an assassin? Whichever it is, fans are delighted.

Actor Sivakarthikeyan released the Tamil poster on Twitter.

Rana Daggubati launched the Telugu poster while Dulquer Salmaan did the honours for the Malayalam one. Both stars congratulated Varalaxmi for the upcoming film.

Varalaxmi is among the few heroines in Tamil films today who feature in mainstream cinema but still manage to get meaningful roles that go beyond the "glam doll" label.

Her last release Nibunan saw her playing an investigating officer who is part of a team hunting down a serial killer.

Varalaxmi has also been vocal about the gender inequality in the film industry and has started the 'Save Shakti' initiative to address sexual harassment within the profession.
