Raai Laxmi has confirmed the news and said that she is working really hard to get into the shape.

"There is a bikini scene in the movie, and given my broad frame, it takes a lot of work to get into that bikini mode. On screen, you just can't look even a wee bit fat while sporting a bikini. It is something that I haven't done before and am really looking forward to it," Behindwoods quoted the actress as saying.

"Julie 2" is a performance-oriented movie directed by Deepak Shivdasani. The story is about an innocent girl making it big in the film industry and reports have it that the movie will have lots of glamorous and bold scenes.
