If rumours are to be believed, Ramya, after signing the film, was supposed to attend Kalaripayattu, a traditional form of martial art, classes, as the role of princess demanded her to perform stunts. The makers of the film reportedly registered her name and paid for the classes, which the actress could not attend for reasons best known to her.
It is also said that Ramya was not happy to pair up with Prem Kumar, with whom she worked in two films. It may be because of his poor track record in the recent years. But director Roopa Iyer has refused to talk about the issue claiming that due to some misunderstanding their wish of working together could not be materialised.
On the other end, Ramya's spokesperson has clarified to a leading daily that the makers of Chandru should stop talking about the Golden Girl to gain publicity, rather talk about the film and the story.
