Raja Ravi Varma was a part of an Indian royal family hailing from the erstwhile princely state of Travancore.  He was a painter par excellence, with his paintings being recognised as some of the best works in Indian arts.

Tollywood actresses Samantha Akkineni, Khushbu Sundar, Ramya Krishnan, Shruti Haasan and many others recently turned muses for recreating iconic poses from famous Raja Ravi Varma paintings.  This feature is a part of a limited edition calendar which is themed on Raja Ravi Varma’s famous paintings. The photos were recreated and captured by renowned photographer G. Venket Ram.

The actresses did it as a part of a philanthropic endeavour by actress and director Suhasini Maniratnam for her NAAM Charitable Trust.  The calendar celebrates a decade of empowering single women from the underprivileged segments of society.

The paintings were recreated to closely resemble the originals painted by Raja Ravi Varma.  Some of the poses are so similar to the originals, it is difficult to differentiate them from each other.  One of the paintings, which was based on one of Raja Ravi Varma’s work titled Woman Holding A Fruit, has Samantha in the recreated version and the resemblance is uncanny.
