After 16 years of success of the chart-buster film Rangeela, filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma is planning ti work on the sequel of the film with Rahman. This idea struck RGV during the launch of Rahman's biography. At the launch, the Mozart of Madras thanked filmmakers like Mani Ratnam, Subhash Ghai, Ashutosh Gowariker, and Ram Gopal Varma, for their individual contributions to his successful career.
He even mentioned the name of only one film Rangeela which was a turning point in his career. RGV told to Mid Day, “When Rahman mentioned Rangeela, I was deeply moved. The fact that he feels it was a significant film in his career is something I agree with. I was flooded with memories of the music of Rangeela."
He went on to add, "I was terrified of the music Rahman had created for Rangeela. The songs were so awesome, I felt I wouldn't be able to do visual justice. If we work together again, it has to be on something that would do justice to Rahman's music. Of course I want to work with him again, but I have to come up with a script that won't let him down."
Ram Gopal Varma recalled the old memories of the days when Rahman was working on the musical scores of the film. He said that Rahman has no arrogance and his music always comes from his heart. Reportedly, Varma has already started working on the script for the sequel of Rangeela, however he restricted from revealing anything further.
In this Bollywood's era of remakes and sequels there is one more film that will add to the list soon. Filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma is very keen on recreating the Rangeela magic on-screen with music composer AR Rahman.
