    Tashan even worse than Ramu's Aag

    By By: Upala KBR, Mid-Day
    Ram Gopal Varma may well be one of the few filmmakers who know how to laugh at themselves.

    When Yash Raj Films' Tashan released on Friday, RGV was shocked on being flooded with a barrage of responses from the industry saying Tashan was worse than/as bad as his Sholay remake — Ram Gopal Varma Ki Aag!

    An amused Ramu texted Amitabh Bachchan about it who was even more amused by Ramu"s casual manner and reproduced his SMS on his blog. Bachchan posted this on his blog yesterday, “Ram Gopal Varma amuses me with his self-deprecatory remark on the SMS. This morning his text reads: 'Sarkar (we address each other thus), people are saying Tashan is as bad as Aag!

    If Sholay has set the benchmark for the ultimate hit then the least I achieved with Aag, is that I made it a benchmark for the ultimate flop. Ha...ha." Says Ramu, "You mean he has put it on his blog? Yes, I have heard people are comparing Aag to Tashan.

    On Saturday, I got a lot of calls from people saying Tashan should be called Aditya Chopra Ki Aag. They thought it was as bad as Aag." Was Anurag Kashyap one of those who messaged him? "Anurag hasn't messaged me for a year now." Does the comparision make him feel bad? "All these criticisms don"t make me feel bad but yes it keeps me motivated enough to make Sholay again," says.
