Once actress Lakshmi Menon was labelled as the "the fastest rising star in Tamil cinema" by Sify. She starred in critically-acclaimed and hit films on after another. The actress even received Tamil Nadu State Film Award for Best Actress two times for Kumki and Sundarapandian.

But, her stride towards success as an actress didn't last long. She was typecasted as a girl-next-door. Tired of acting in similar roles, Lakshmi Menon took a break from her film career to focus on her Class XII board exams and classical dance training.

In 2017, the actress revealed that she was planning on leaving Tamil cinema as she was 'extremely bored essaying the same kind of role in all her films and it was getting too repetitive'. Lakshmi was filming a movie with Prabhu Deva 'Yung Mung Chung', but there hasn't been any news about its release so far.

Fast forward to 2019, Lakshmi Menon recently released a song she sang in the Jasari language from the movie 'Sinjar'. This will be her third song and it was composed by Satheesh Ramachandran. The film is based on the 2014 massacre of Sinjar in Iraq. Watch the video song here:

Apart from singing songs, Lakshmi Menon has also been busy performing classical dances like Bharathanatyam and Kuchipudi. Her performances have been making waves in the performing arts fraternity. It seems like we might not stand a chance to see her on-screen for a while.
