Golden girl Ramya a.k.a. Divya Spandana had earlier acted with Real Star Upendra in the movie Bhimoos Bang Bang Kids, but it did not hit the screens. Now, the Kannada actress is once again joining hands with the Sandalwood superstar in the film Gandhinagarada Mahatme, which also features director-cum-actor Prem in the lead.
Gandhinagarada Mahatme is a remake of the Malayalam film Udayananu Tharam, but Ramya says that it is not a frame-to-frame because Upendra has made lots of changes in the original script. Meanwhile, she also reveals why she accepted the role. She adds that the film is partially mythological and her role is modelled on Draupadi. She always wanted to act in a period film. So she accepted the role.
However, Ramya is currently busy with the shooting of movies like Yogish starrer Siddlingu and Radhika Kumaraswamy"s debut production Lucky. She is expected to take up Uppi's next project Gandhinagarada Mahatme, which will go on floors on September 18, Upendra"s birthday.
