Golden Girl Ramya is set to face yet another challenge. The actress, who has made it to top in Kannada films, is now taking a plunge into politics. She has filed her nomination for the Mandya Lok Sabha bypoll from the Congress ticket. But the 29-year old is reportedly not happy to contest and it is the pressure from the party that made her to file the nomination.
Reports say that the Congress did not find a suitable candidate to contest from Mandya Lok Sabha constituency. The responsibility of choosing the perfect candidate was on the shoulders of actor-turned-politician Ambareesh. He approached many leaders, who set conditions to contest. Hence, he convinced Ramya to contest at the eleventh hour. Soon after that tragedy struck her in the form of her foster father RT Narayan's death.
