Chennai: Actress Ramya Krishnan, who played Queen Sivagami in SS Rajamouli's Baahubali, is all set to play a ghost in upcoming Telugu film Rudraksha, which will be directed by her husband, filmmaker Krishna Vamsi.
Ramya has collaborated with her husband after a decade.
"Ramya plays a ghost, a wandering soul in the film. Though, she has played goddesses on several occasions, this is the first time she will be playing the role of a ghost," a source from the film's unit told IANS.
"However, she won't be portrayed like how usually ghosts are showcased in southern cinema. This will be a much refined character which was originally offered to Prakash Raj, who couldn't take it up due to prior commitments," the source added.
Rudraksha, which also features Samantha Ruth Prabhu, is expected to start filming from June. The project is tipped to be the most expensive film in the career of the director.
According to sources in the industry, Rudraksha will be high on visual effects. Ramya Krishnan will next collaborate with Kamal Haasan for a project, also starring Shruti Haasan. (Also Read: Baahubali's First Song Has Been Released and It's in Hindi)
