    Patna (UNI): Producer and director Ramgopal Varma has ruled out his joining into politics and said the subject -politics- inspired him much to make movie than any other contemporary subject in society. Speculation rifed among his fans here following his meeting with Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar here yesterday. But he told UNI that he has no plan to join in politics. His immediate reaction after emerging from the chief minister's official residence was that Mr Nitish Kumar " is extremely friendly person I had ever Met." He said "My all perceptions about Bihar and its negative image in my mind has changed after meeting the Chief Minister." The movie maker also said that he never got an oportunity to meet the Bollywood favourite politician and Railway Minister Lalu Prasad.

    Ramgopal Varma said he was here for promotion of his new film "Shiva" to be released on September 15. He said his visit here had fulfilled his long cherished dream. "Bihar is a sensitive state with all burning issues prevailing here and it is important to personally tell the people about -Shiva- as it is a unique film", the director opined. Issues like corruption, violence, lawlessness and other ills in the society provoked him to direct and produce Shiva. This time a cop has been shown in the film fighting against ills while his earlier movie with the same title released fifteen years back had picturised the issues on students in college campus. To a query, regarding Shiva's violence scene, which might adversely affect the minds of people, the director while justifying the sequence said that the worst kind of violence was prevailing in the society that beyond imagination even for a film maker.
