Samantha shared a stunning picture of herself recreating Varma's painting of a woman holding a fruit. “Always the best working with you @venketramg... recreating Ravi varmas work for NAAM. So glad I could be a part of this meaningful project .. Thankyou,” she wrote in the caption.


Ramya recreated Varma's painting of Damayanti, dressed in a red sari, talking to the swan who told her about King Nala's love for her. "Recreating Ravi Varmas work for NAAM ...feeling blessed thank you @suhasinihasan for this wonderful opportunity and @venketramg your the best.....glad to have been a part of this project," she wrote.


Shruti recreated two paintings of Raja Ravi Varma - one of a lady by a river while the other is of Rani of Kurupam. She is dressed in a purple saree for one and in a blue saree for another, the colours matching the exact originals. "Such an incredible experience shooting for this and such an honour to be associated with this cause !! Thankyou @suhasinihasan Akka for making me a part of something so memorable," she shared.


Aishwarya Rajessh also posed for a picture in which is seen sitting in a chair draped in a red saree with heavy jewellery. “It was a fantastic experience working with G Venket Ram (@venketramg) and suhasini (@suhasinihasan) for recreating Ravi varma project for NAAM. So glad I could participate in such a meaningful project,” she wrote.


The calendar has been launched for Naam Charitable Trust, which completed a decade of work in women empowerment.
