MumbaiSouth Superstar Vijay Deverakonda and Bollywood actress Ananya Pandey starrer ‘Liger’ has finally been released worldwide. As soon as the film was released, the film is seen falling face-to-face at the box office. People liked the acting of well-known actress Ramya Krishnan. Ramya Krishnan plays the character of Vijay Deverakonda’s mother in the film.
Ramya, who has been garnering accolades on social media for her role and acting in the film, recently made a statement about her inclination like the South Film Industry. Ramya says that she is a hit in South Indian films but her coin could not be settled in Bollywood, which is why she returned back there.
Recently, while talking to a web portal, Ramya said- ‘A short Bollywood career gave me a chance to understand the right things as a star. No film in the Hindi industry did well in theatres. In the South, I was already a star in the Telugu film industry. I didn’t have the guts to fight my battles in Hindi cinema except in the South industry. You need a successful film to establish your place in any industry and do more and more films in it. But unfortunately that didn’t happen in Hindi and I was comfortable doing Telugu films. That’s why I went there.’
he adds-‘I will always be grateful to the South filmmakers for offering me different roles. I am glad that I got a chance to work in a film like Kamal Haasan’s ‘Panchantram’ in which I played a call girl Maggie.
Krishnan said-Then with Rajini sir I did Padayappa in which I played the antagonist, and then did a film like Super Deluxe so such roles have opened doors of more opportunities for me. Maybe that’s why I’m not typecast.’
Significantly, Ramya made her acting debut in 1983 with the Tamil film “Vellai Manasu” and in her career spanning four decades, she acted in films in Telugu, Kannada, Malayalam and Hindi languages. In Bollywood, Ramya acted in films like Khalnayak, Banarasi Babu, Bade Miyan Chote Miyan, Swearth but regret that none of the actress’ films proved to be a hit on the big screen although Ramya is a hit in Telugu, Tamil and Malayalam films.
Talking about her upcoming films, Ramya Krishnan will be seen in superstar Rajinikanth’s film ‘Jailor’ and the second season of her Netflix series ‘Queen’.
