The hot an happening Lakshmi Rai, who sizzled in the recent hit Balupu is not keen to take up any item song that comes her way. Revealing her intentions about such songs Lakshmi said “Money is not the criteria for me. I am very selective about my work and if I do good roles money will come by itself. I have refused similar item song offers as they were getting repetitive and only did Balupu because I was playing myself in the film”. Lakshmi Rai is a prominent face in Tamil cinema and has some interesting films lined up this year.
