RGV twitted, “By the time I finished Rakta Charitra the reality became a film for me and now this incident jolted me back into reality. Its shocking to see a person with whom I have been inter acting with for over a year for research of RC just lying there still and lifeless."
Suri aka Gangula Suryanarayana Reddy was killed by his own man Bhanu Kiran on Monday (Jan 3) evening. The director, who was in touch with both, said that he knew Bhanu very well and he was the person, who used to talk behalf of the slain-don most of the time.
The gruesome incident has made him insane and has decided not to continue with RC series. However,he rubbished the reports that Suri's portrayal in RC might have led to murder of the gangster.
