Ramya Krishnan: The Sivagami Of Indian Cinema (Tollywood)
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 which are quite popular in Telugu. 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 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. She has also given stage performances at formal events. Her dancing skills came to limelight when she was displaying her skills in a song from a Telugu film Sankeerthana. The song was surely a treat to watch for most of us.
3. She made her debut in a Telugu film ‘Bhale Mitrulu’ in the year 1986. She became popular in the Tollywood industry alongside actresses like Soundarya, Meena, Roja and Nagma who were the A-listers back in those days with multiple films faring well in the box office.
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 immortalised 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. The character became one of the iconic characters in the Indian Cinema.
We just feel like saluting this woman for her immense dedication to the world of Indian Cinema.
