South Indian actress Raai Laxmi aka Lakshmi Raibagi will appear in a sizzling avatar in the upcoming movie, "Julie 2." Raai, who plays the female lead in "Julie 2," will be seen donning a bikini in her Bollywood debut. She has been spending a lot of time in the gym to get the perfect body.

The actress is currently preparing for the film's next schedule in Dubai. Although Raai will reportedly have a number of bold scenes in the movie, the actress said that "Julie 2" involves much more than just skin show.

"The film is not mere skin show, but there is lots of drama and emotion to showcase my acting skills. It is a great opportunity to play such a role in Julie's sequel," Mid-Day quoted Raai as saying.

Raai has posted a number of photos that reveal her look in "Julie 2." The actress has shared some pictures from the movie that show her clad in a bikini, which are sure to leave the fans asking for more. Raai had said earlier that she had to work very hard to get a bikini-perfect body.

"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," Raai had told Behindwoods.com.

Directed by Deepak Shivdasani, "Julie 2" is reportedly a story about a simple girl, who wants to reach the top in the glamour industry. It is a sequel to the Neha Dhupia-starrer erotic thriller "Julie" that also had a lot of skin show and steamy scenes.
