Grapevine has it that Ramya had issues over the remuneration and that made her walk out of the project. But the director, who wanted her for the role, convinced her and settled all the issues.
Recently, she twitted, "I have opted out of Neer Dose, heard the script, it's a good one but honestly I don't think I can do justice to it." Her decision to walk out of the Kannada film came as a shocker to many, and more importantly, the reason that she gave for opting out of the project is surprising as the actress always craved for challenging roles.
On the other end, the makers of the film are not happy with Ramya's decision to opt out at the last minute. It has left them fuming but they have decided to go ahead with a proper replacement. However, the Golden Girl had reportedly taken an advance of Rs 15 lakhs.
Neer Dose is directed by Vijaya Prasad, who had earlier directed her in superhit Sidlingu, and produced by Sudhi. The film also features Jaggesh and Bhavana in the key roles.
