Wijayadasa was born in Sri Lanka and brought up in Singapore and Australia. She aspired to become a Miss World when she saw Aishwarya Rai Bachchan win the crown in 1994.

Ghamya is aware that she may be branded as an item girl after this project.

She says, "I had to take that risk. It was the first offer I got. I had to start somewhere and this was the much needed break. I might get more dancing roles or acting ones but I am happy that I did it as I got into the industry."
