Filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma has come up with a crime thriller titled Not A Love Story, based on Neeraj Grover murder case. The incident shocked the whole nation a few years ago. Now, the filmmaker is keeping his fingers crossed, as he is not sure how the audience will react to the cinematic version of the incident.
“I have no idea how the film will be accepted by the audience. My job is to make the film with the best of my ability and then it is up to the audience to decide," RGV told PTI after launching a promotional song of the film. “Crime existed ever since man was born that is 60,000 years back and films are invented 100 years back. I don't believe films can inspire anybody," he added.
RGV said during the launch of the remix version of Rangeela title track that the song talks about the feelings of somebody wanting to become famous.
“I have used the song ''Rangeela Re'' as it represents spirit, joy, happiness and attitude. The song is very thematic to the film. In the film (Not A Love Story), the girl comes to Mumbai to become famous as an actress but how unfortunately becomes famous as a murderess," he said, adding, “If the unfortunate incident had not taken place, her life would have been different. The Rangeela song exactly talks about those feelings of somebody wanting to be famous. Hence, I thought it would be a good idea to use the song in the background score of the film."
Not A Love Story is said to be inspired by Neeraj Grover murder case. Grover was allegedly killed by naval officer Emile Jerome Matthew, fiance of actress Maria Susairaj. Ths film features Mahie Gill, Deepak Dobriyal and Ajay Gehi in lead roles.
