Maitreyi Ramakrishnan doesn't want any of her Never Have I Ever co-stars to be in her 'dream project'

She has just the part in mind for her two onscreen love interests, should she make an exception.

Never Have I Ever's Maitreyi Ramakrishnan has a clear vision of how she wants her next dream project to look like.

The actor recently starred in the fourth and final season of the Netflix coming-of-age series, saying goodbye to the role of chaotic teen Devi Vishwakumar.

Speaking to UNILAD, Ramakrishnan revealed she would love to create her own live-action Rapunzel.

On one condition, though: none of her Never Have I Ever co-stars are allowed to take part.

"Absolutely not. Stay in your lane," she replied when asked whether she'd want any of her Netflix pals in her own film.

She then proceeded to think of the roles she'd need to cast should this dream project become a reality.

"You need a Flynn, you need someone who doesn't know how handsome they are," she said. "You know, [his] overconfidence makes up for a lot of insecurities."

The Rapunzel story was given a modern update in 2010's Tangled, with golden-haired princess Rapunzel voiced by This Is Us's Mandy Moore.

Ramakrishnan is open to change the story if needs be, turning the film's villain Mother Gothel into a more layered character.

"You might even want to change up the storyline a little bit, make Mother Gothel not so bad of a person," she suggested.

Envisioning her very own Rapunzel story, the actress had one role in mind for Never Have I Ever co-creator Mindy Kaling.

"She could play my mum," she offered, before realising the age gap between them won't make it fully believable (much like that between the protagonist and the actor playing Paxton, but that's for another time).

"Oh my god no, she's gonna get mad at me for saying that, her actual kids are much younger than me. No way," she said.

Darren and Jaren better forget about being Maitreyi's Flynn in her own Tangled.

And speaking of her two onscreen love interests, actors Jaren Lewison (who plays Ben Gross) and Darren Barnet (Paxton Hall-Yoshida), Ramakrishnan softened up, leaving a small role for each of them.

"You know what? Jaren and Darren could be the guys in the bar dancing around about their dreams," she said.

She's referring to the pub patrons dancing passionately to 'I've Got a Dream' in Disney's animated movie.

She concluded: "I can see them doing that... yeah, neither of them are my Flynn though. Absolutely not."
