Apart from politics and elections, Ramya also has an upcoming movie with actor Shivarajkumar. The film is titled as "Aryan." The actress recently mentioned that this may be her last film for now as politics is keeping her away. "Right now, I have no time to commit to any new film. I am currently completing "Aryan" and have some patchwork left for the film "Dil Ka Raja". "Aryan" may be my last film," she told The Times Of India.
