A few days ago we came to know that James Cameron walked into the sets of Priyadarshan’s Malayalam film ‘Arabiyum, Ottakavum, P Madhavan Nairum’ when the shooting was taking place in Dubai.

Now the latest is that the Hollywood big gun has expressed his desire to work with Lakshmi Rai, the heroine of the Priyadarshan’s project. “He was thoroughly impressed with the actress,” say sources

Confirming this Lakshmi Rai says, “After meeting me on the sets, he read up on me and my films on the world wide web. I will be leaving for California soon to work with him. Cameron said that I had a good body of work and it is a huge compliment for me,”

The Hollywood director was in Dubai for the 2011 Abu Dhabi Media Summit. Priyan, who came to know about this, sought a dinner appointment with the man behind ‘Avatar’. However, Cameron said he would come to the sets to observe Priyan’s work style.
