Kannada actress Ramya has ruled out co-director Suresh Raj's claims that she attempted to commit suicide on the sets of Sudeep starrer movie Just Maath Maathalli (Just Mat Matalli). The actress said that she fainted after consuming tablets for a migraine attack.
Earlier, co-director Suresh Raj had claimed that Ramya attempted suicide as the dance sequence shots were not turning out well. Talking to Bangalore Mirror, Ramya said: "Why should I attempt suicide? I took tablets for migraine. As I had to do several takes, I fainted on the sets."
She added, “On Thursday, evening I had taken prescription for migraine from my doctor Chouti in Mallya Hospital. I told producer Shankre that I will have to take the tablet by 9.30 pm and that would knock me out. I took the tablet in front of him, but he insisted that I participate in the shooting for just five minutes," Ramya said.
The actress has claimed that she was not given he due respect. She was made to stand for 30 minutes without the shot being called for. So the tablet took its effect. She said further to Bangalore Mirror, “I will henceforth work with people, who respect women and who can work as a team. Even if I am paid a million bucks and given a good script I will not work with such people."
Ramya slammed the KFDA and choreographer insisting Harsha has filed a false complaint against her and the Association has taken wrong decision based on his complaint. Neither she has insulted his assistant Mohana nor abused any of her fellow dancers.
“I missed my lyric as my hair obscured my face and I wanted a re-shoot. It was Harsha who said that he would use that shot even if we take a re-shoot. As an actor don"t I have the right to ask for another take? The assistant was being constantly corrected by Harsha so I asked him to pick up the corrections and then teach me," Bangalore Mirror quotes Ramya saying.
“I am here to learn and they are supposed to teach me. I cannot stoop to such a level as to speak rudely with others. My problem was only with Harsha and not with the dancers. And I did not even speak to Harsha about it," she added.
However, Harsha"s complaint against Ramya has been signed by the dancers. The interesting fact about it is that about 60 members of the film crew have also signed on the complained, which also includes the signature of director-actor Sudeep, co-directors and the cameraman of the film. It is said that all other technicians of the film were also upset with Ramya"s behaviour.
