From the beginning you have been lucky and getting very good offers?
That's true. My Zodiac sign is like that. From a heroine in 'Abhi' debut opposite Puneeth Rajkumar I am now with different kind of roles. Now I play a mother of teen age in 'Julie'. The films I am getting all of them from the Gowda community because I also belong to that community.
After a nose surgery is this the first film for you?
You are right. I had a small operation for my nose after the shooting of 'Amritha Dhare' was complete. 'Julie' is the first film with a nose surgery.
What is that you liked very much in 'Julie'?
Abortion is bad and the need of sense of responsibility is the two focal issues in the film touched me a lot. In a teen age everyone is bound to commit mistakes. But that harms their own life with a kid at the college going age. The message is very clearly told in the film.
What is your mind set for bedroom song bhool gaya sab kuch in 'Julie'?
That is the turning point song in the film. That song has to be romantic. In Hindi 'Julie' it is not that sensuous. We are making it very sensuous to look on the screen. With a handsome looking guy like Dino Moreo it has to be romantic and sensuous. Otherwise what is the use?
How did a Bombay guy accept this offer?
Dino Morea is born and brought up in Bangalore. He is famous in Mumbai today because of films like Raaz, Saturday night fever, Plan, December 9 etc. First he did not give nod thinking that he has to play a role with Ramyakrishna who is mother in her real life. Then my identification was disclosed and said it is not Ramyakrishna but Ramya. He took sometime and gave his consent.
How is your queue of films?
I have 'Datta' opposite Darshan, 'Julie', in 'Sevanthi Sevanthi' of reputed director S.Narayan I am playing opposite Vijaya Raghavendra, and then for director Kavitha Lankesh I am playing lead in 'Thananam Thananam'. For Yogesh son of Dwarakish veteran producer I have given consent. That is based on a Russian film that will be shot entirely in London.
Did you ever thought you would become such a prominent actress?
My background is strong. Obviously limelight came to me quickly. I had filmy and political connection. I played a dance program from which Raghavendra Rajkumar selected me. It is for 'APPU' the debut of Puneeth. I had a bitter experience because I was not finally selected. Then again he called me for Abhi, I was planning to turn down the offer. That did not happen.
Are you getting what you want in this field?
Even in my school days at Ooty I was getting what I wanted. I wanted to prove that I am beautiful and be cynosure of all eyes. Then after schooling my parents thought of sending me to business school in London investing lakhs of rupees. I said no to it. Instead of investing lakhs there if a career is carved here how it would be I thought. I am not repenting now.
Ramyaji you spend a lot of money with aristocracy always behind you?
That's true. We have to spend what we earn. But so far what I have earned it has not come from my expenses. I am not able to save it. My parents have given me aristocratic life. Now I have thought I should earn and give a wonderful house to my mother as gift.
What are the other ambitions on the cards?
After I do some more films I want to get married. I would like to have two children and settle down in life.
Can you give an account of your films so far?
