Ram Gopal Varma, who has often preferred to work with newcomers, has opened up on why he does not like to work with established actors. The Bollywood filmmaker, who has roped in fresh faces for his film Satya 2, says that it is easy to work with newcomers as established actors often come with baggage. His next directorial ventures features newcomers like Puneet Singh, Anaika Soti and Aradhna in the lead roles. The film is slated to hit the screens on October 25.
In a statement to IANS, Ram Gopal Varma said, "It's easy to work with newcomers because it's their debut film, so they work harder and give their 100 percent. By the time they come to the set, they are well prepared. Established actors...they come with some baggage and they take it for granted...so to take them out of their image, and get them to fit in the character is much more difficult."
When asked if his comment is based on his personal experience, Ram Gopal Varma said, "Nothing as such. Any actor who has worked before has an image. Suddenly if you put him in a realistic situation, it becomes difficult to make it believable for him or her. I am saying so in that context."
