Kolkata, June 28, (Washington Bangla Radio): Ram (Girish Kumar) always introduces himself as badmaash, bigda hua and badtameez!

Being the only child of Australia based billionaire couple Siddharth (Randhir Kapoor) and Ashvini (Poonam Dhillon), he’s not that far off the mark!

Sona (Shruti Haasan) is a lovely girl from a small village, who has been lovingly brought up by her brother Raghu (Sonu Sood), who has worked night and day to make sure Sona gets a good life. They are not very rich, but their love for each other is priceless.


Ram and his snobbish mother Ashvini come to India to attend his cousin Riya’s wedding. Here he meets Sona, who is Riya’s childhood friend. It’s literally a clash between Venus and Mars! Ram, the habitual flirt, gets drawn to this lovely but simple girl from the village. Young love blossoms – pure and magical. But Sona’s brother Raghu hates the wealthy, and Ram’s mother has nothing but disdain for the not-so wealthy.

Ram will have to face impossible challenges and Sona will have to witness his hardship and humiliation. Can Ram and Sona face the impossible odds? Can their love overcome all obstacles for a happy ending? Watch Ramaiya Vastavaiya – the colourful and extravagant entertainer replete with music, drama and action, directed by Prabhudheva and produced by Tips Industries Ltd, releasing 19th July, 2013.

Character sketches:

Ram is Girish Kumar. He’s brash and confident and loves a good prank. But he also has a soft
side and will risk everything for those he loves. His mobile face mirrors a thousand emotions,
even as he talks his way out of the most impossible situations. High on energy and talent, this
cute youngster has already made an instant connect with the masses.

Sona is Shruti Haasan. She embodies everything that is soft and feminine and utterly irresistible.
She does not rant and rave in anger or frustration when the two people she loves most in the
world are on a collision course. Because her belief in her love is silent, strong and unyielding.

Raghuveer is Sonu Sood. His mother’s heart was broken by the power of money and she died
leaving her young son to fend for himself and his baby sister. Raghu’s world revolves around
Sona. And he will allow nothing and nobody to come between them. Especially not a spoilt and
wealthy brat from Australia.

Siddharth is Randhir Kapoor. He is counted amongst the Forbes top billionaires from Australia.
He adores his only child Ram and wants his son to enjoy life to the fullest – cost no bar. Father
and son share a great bonding till Ram chooses to leave everything behind to win the hand of
his lady love.

Ashvini is Poonam Dhillon. Although she is married to a billionaire, her passion for wealth
remains unabated. She values a person only by the amount of money he has. Naturally her
hatred for Sona is immediate and obvious. She simply cannot understand how or why her son
likes this simple village girl.
