'Sridevi' the upcoming movie of director Ram Gopal Varma (RGV), has already created a lot of buzz in both Tollywood and Bollywood. Earlier this week, actress Sridevi had given a legal notice (cease and desist notice) to filmmaker RGV for using her name as the title of his film, and also demanded the filmmaker to issue an apology within three days' time.
The ace director reacting to the big controversy took to his facebook page and wrote, "In the legal notice sent to me, there seems to be an apprehension that the film Sridevi is based on a crush I personally had for Sridevi in my college years."
RGV further told that, "There's a huge age gap between the boy and woman in the film Sridevi which is not the case with me and the real Sridevi". Thus, he clarifies that the movie is not about his crush on Sridevi, but the story of a teenager's infatuation with a 25-year-old woman. He confirmed that he will not change the title of the movie 'Sridevi'.
He also clarified that the movie or the movie name was not intended to demean her and it was misconstrued.
