Ramya is probably one woman who’d single-handedly have about eight out of 10 men go weak-kneed.
Diva, Queen Bee, Superstar… there are many titles that have been attributed to her but she believes that she’s just a simple, yet special girl, who does have her share of weaknesses. Here’s Ramya unplugged…
01 I was born in Bangalore in 1982. People never get it right!
02 I won the Best Supporting Actress for three consecutive years in school (St Hilda’s, Ooty)
03 I won the super senior championship in my sixth grade in athletics
04 My first film offer was Ninagagi, which eventually starred Radhika
05 I had my first crush when I was in Class 3
06 I had my first boyfriend only when I was in Class 12. We just held hands then
07 I used to be in the school choir. I was an alto
08 I even wrote poems in school. The first one to be published was something I wrote in Class 5. It was about Jesus Christ
09 I love to travel. I like travelling alone too. This year, I’ve gifted myself a solo vacation in Istanbul
10 I have a fetish for shoes and bags
11 I own over a 100 perfumes
12 I can stitch and knit. In fact, I used to make my own friendship bands in school, which people liked
13 I am a good skater
14 I cook occasionally. I make good chitranna
15 I have a weakness for sweets. My vice is Lindt Sprungli. Any guy can woo me with that! Once, I had as many as 18 gulab jamuns in one go. They were from Bhagatram and I didn’t feel guilty
16 I am allergic to grapes
17 I have a bad memory. Once, I forgot my friend and drove off
18 I am yet to watch India’s biggest blockbuster — Sholay
19 I hate rumours about me. The one rumour that affected me most was that I killed myself. I love my life way too much
20 To set the record straight, I am not married, neither am I SM Krishna’s daughter, granddaughter, niece, mother or sister!
21 The most embarrassing moment was when I asked New Zealand cricketer Ross Taylor, which part of Australia he’s from!
22 I do not have a best friend. My 2am friend would be my dog Brandy, she was gifted to me by Ambareesh uncle
23 I do regret taking up certain projects. Thoondil is one such film
24 Likewise, certain films are close to my heart. Varanam Aayiram and Sanju Weds Geetha have been very memorable
25 Suriya is my favourite co-star
26 Oh! Aamir Khan has beaten me at both badminton and scrabble
27 The highlight of 2010 was meeting Rahul Gandhi
28 And finally, I accept that I am dating someone right now; he isn’t connected to the film industry in any way whatsoever.
