In her latest release ‘Liger’, she plays Balamani, the mother of protagonist Vijay Deverakonda.
Renowned actress Ramya Krishnan of the South film industry is in discussion these days. Ramya’s film ‘Liger’ has recently been released in theaters, and seems to be flopping at the box office. The film was heavily promoted by Vijay Deverakonda and Ananya Pandey, but looking at the collection of the film, it seems all the money went away. Meanwhile, Ramya, who plays Vijay’s mother in ‘Liger’, says she is a hit in South Indian films, but couldn’t get her currency in Bollywood, which is why she returned there.
Ramya made his acting debut in 1983 with the Tamil film ‘Vellai Manasu’ and in his career spanning four decades, he acted in Telugu, Kannada, Malayalam, and Hindi films. In Bollywood, Ramya acted in films like Khalnayak, Banarasi Babu, Bade Miyan Chote Miyan, and Swarth, but unfortunately, none of the actress’ films turned out to be a hit on the big screen, though Ramya is a hit in Telugu, Tamil and Malayalam movies. Recently, in a conversation with PTI, the actress says that her brief stint in Bollywood gave her the opportunity to understand the right things as an artist. It was only after this that the actress left Bollywood and turned to Telugu cinema.
“One film did well and I…”
Ramya said, “No film did well here and I was already a well-known actress in the Telugu film industry. That’s why I didn’t have the courage to leave that industry and fight my battles in Hindi cinema. To do a maximum number of films in a particular film industry, you need a successful film. Unfortunately, this did not happen in Hindi and I am comfortable making Telugu films.
Let us tell you that some of Krishnan’s famous southern films are “Allari Priyadu” (Telugu), “Padyappa” (Tamil), “Sweetie Nanna Jodi” (Kannada), “Baahubali” and “Baahubali 2″ (Telugu) and ” Super Deluxe” (Tamil). Krishnan says he is grateful to filmmakers in the South for giving him work in different films. He said, “I am glad I got the opportunity to work in films like Kamal Haasan’s ‘Panchantram’.
