She hasn't done very many films, but she has managed to be in news for a while. Latest buzz is that actress Lakshmi Rai who is more popular in Tollywood as an item bomb is dating a male model. She is said to be romancing Hanif Hilal, a Mumbai-based model-turned-actor.
Lakshmi Rai earlier dated cricketer Mahendra Singh Dhoni. That was when she caught public attention both here and in Bollywood. However, despite ample skin show, she hasn't made it big either in Tollywood or in Tamil industry, leaving aside Bollywood.
The controversial actress was also linked with a business magnet for some time. But Bollywood media says she is now head over heels with this hunk.
Lakshmi Rai will soon be seen in 'Julie 2' that is releasing in Telugu, Tamil and Hindi languages. She did item songs in 'Sardaar Gabbar Singh' and 'Khaidi No 150' recently. Of late, her hot stills from Julie 2 have been all over media.
