Ramu, as he is fondly called, is in the public eye lately post his recent release Phoonk 2. The film was a debacle to say the least and received brickbats galore. Not only does RGV remain unfazed, but also stoutly defends his film. This has brought his next Rakta Charitra, under the scanner. The film stars his protege Vivek Oberoi. The two will work together for the first time since Ramu launched Vivek in Company in 2002.
This is prompted certain sections of the media to report that Vivek is also being considered for Ramu"s Sarkar 3. Sarkar and its sequel Sarkar Raj have been among Varma"s most successful films so far. He recently spoke about the uproar created about this. He reported said that he wouldn"t dare to cast Vivek in Sarkar 3 for fear of the Bachchan"s reaction. He even remarked that they would kill him if he were to do such a thing! It was in jest but it sure looked like the fearless Ramu was afraid of certain repercussions regarding casting Vivek!
