Raghav Loki met and briefed him a story written by him which had impressed Ramesh. "I think Shivaraj Kumar would be the best choice for the hero’s role in the film. If Shivaraj Kumar agrees to the main role, then I would produce the film." Ramesh assured Loki. Loki got the approval of Shivaraj Kumar and Sathya In Love became a reality.
To make Sathya in Love a memorable film, Ramesh provided all the necessary support to Raghava Loki.
