Ram Gopal Varma is one filmmaker who always makes the kind of film
he believes in. The flamboyant director does exactly what he
pleases without caring about the consequences. Be it the hype
surrounding his controversial flicks like Nishabd or
Ram Gopal Varma ki Aag or his alleged closeness to
starlets like Nisha kothari, the man is undeterred. He also speaks
his mind and doesn"t mince words.
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!
