Shivagami of Baahubali turns porn star for Tamil movie Super Deluxe
One actor in Baahubali who has created the most powerful impact on its audience is the character of Shivagami Devi played by Ramya Krishnan.
For her upcoming Tamil film, Ramya is playing the role of a adult moviestar. A couple of days ago, director Thiagarajan Kumararaja unveiled his film Super Deluxe's gripping trailer which took the social media by storm.
Ramya plays the role of a adult movie star in the film 'Mallu Uncut' within the film Super Deluxe. In an interview to a leading English daily, she called her character 'the most challenging in her career.' She said, "This one (Super Deluxe) is more about the content than the actors. It’s mostly Kumararaja [the director]."
Even before the first round of shooting began, the actor realised that Kumararaja would be a very exacting and demanding director.
Revealing deatils about her character and working experience with Kumararaja, the actress said the director made her do a particular scene 37 times over two days. "More than me, my assistants were the ones who were shocked. Some roles are for money, some for popularity and name, some for passion. This (Super Deluxe) was passion."
In a video interview, Thiagarajan and Mysskin (screenplay writer) revealed that many scenes went easily up to 100 and 150 takes. Speaking about Ramya Krishnan's role and her replacing Nadiya, Thiagarajan exclaimed, "Ramya Krishnan was an odd person to play the role of the adult movie star in the film within the film, Mallu Uncut. We had initially approached Nadiya for the role, Ramya was very cool, and she probably felt that she was pushing herself out of her comfort zone."
Super Deluxe, which stars Vijay Sethupathi, Fahadh Faasil, Ramya Krishnan and Mysskin, will release worldwide on March 29.
