Ram Gopal is far from tense about the release of Ram Gopal Varma Ki Aag. "I've done what I had to do. I'm now looking at the next schedule of Sarkar Raj which starts next week."
All the work with the Bachchans in Sarkar Raj is over. "Now I've to shoot scenes with the rest of the cast." Ramu hopes to complete Sarkar Raj in the next couple of months.
Unfazed by skepticism about the release of two of his directorial undertakings Aag and Darling in a week, Ramu says, "Do you mean to say people look at the director's name in the credits before seeing a film? How does it matter who directed Aag and Darling as long as audiences find the films interesting enough? Darling would do just as well or just as badly even if it was released long after Aag. The two films belong to two different genres and don"t tread into each other territories at all. So I'm not the least apprehensive. Both the films have their own destiny. And it wouldn't have mattered even if they released on the same day."
