Ramya Krishnan’s role as a porn star in Thiagarajan Kumararaja’s upcoming film Super Deluxe could be another career-defining project after superstar Rajinikanth’s Padayappa (1999) and SS Rajamouli’s Baahubali (2015, 2017) franchise. Ahead of the film’s release on 29 March, Ramya has opened up about her role in an interview to daily The Hindu.

Talking about her character, she said it’s easily the most challenging one in her career which spans over three decades. She went on to reveal that she has never given so many takes for a shot in her career.

One particular shot in Super Deluxe took around 37 takes and it went up to two days. Ramya didn’t mind all the hard work. “I pick roles for different reasons – some for money, some for popularity and name, some for passion. This was passion.”

Super Deluxe, which also stars Vijay Sethupathi, Fahadh Faasil and Samantha Akkineni, has been co-written by Thiagarajan along with Mysskin, Nalan Kumarasamy, and Neelan K Sekar. Yuvan Shankar Raja has composed the music.

For the first time in Tamil cinema, four directors have joined hands for a project and it’ll be really interesting to see what will come out of this collaboration.

Not long ago, Samantha described her character as shockingly different.

“I remember asking you ‘where and who can I possibly draw from, for this character’. Thank you for writing a character so shockingly different and helping me make it mine,” she had tweeted, referring to director Thiagarajan.

Vijay Sethupathi plays a transwoman whose character is going to be the film’s biggest surprise, according to reports.
