Ramya Krishnan: The Sivagami Of Indian Cinema (Sandalwood)
She has been in the industry for a very long time and she has never shied away in playing negative roles in most of her films. Ramya Krishnan has come a very long way from being a teenage girl to a full-fledged actress now.
Here is a short ode to the actress who has impressed people with the versatility of the roles:
1. She was born on 15th September 1970 to her parents Krishnan and Maya in a Tamil household based in Chennai. She happens to be the niece of the legendary comedian in Tamil Cinema Cho Ramaswamy.
2. She has been given rigorous training in various dance forms ranging from Kuchipudi to Bharatanatyam to western. She has also given stage performances at various formal events. Her dancing skills were shown in various songs in every Kannada film you can think of. You can see her skills in the item numbers of the films she has done and has done a great job in doing them to perfection. I think this is the reason we see her frequently in negative roles.
3. She was quite popular in Kannada films as well, she made her debut with a silent film called Pushpaka Vimana and then went on making films in the sandalwood industry. In 2013, she was nominated at the SIIMA awards for best actor in a negative role for Sweety Nanna Jodi.
4. After achieving popularity with her films all over India in various languages, her popularity crossed borders when she was offered the role of Maharani Sivagami in the biggest film of Indian Cinema and that is none other than the Baahubali duology. She immortalized the character of Sivagami with conviction and hard work that it not only impressed the Indians but even the Japanese started applauding the film. The first part of the Baahubali duology was the first Indian film to be nominated at the Saturn Awards in 2016. Her character of Sivagami was one of the iconic characters to be remembered.
We just feel like saluting this woman for her immense dedication to the world of Indian Cinema.
