Filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma now wants to show his upcoming film Not A Love Story, based on the Neeraj Grover murder case to convicted Kannada actress Maria Susairaj. The director had earlier refused to screen the film for her.
Not a Love Story is a crime thriller, directed by RGV. The film is inspired by 2008 murder case of the television executive's Neeraj Grover. "I would like to see Maria's reaction on the film on account of how close her emotional state would have been to that of Mahi Gill's character. I am really keen to show Maria Susairaj the film on the basis of like I always maintained that it has been inspired from her story," Varma said on micro-blogging site Twitter.
The film stars Mahi Gill, Deepak Dobriyal and Ajay Gehi in pivotal roles will releases on August 19. Maria was guilty of disposing the body of Grover along with her fiance Emile Jerome had sent a legal notice to Varma saying that he did not have right to release a film based on her life without her consent and had allegedly demanded a private screening.
However, RGV had refused to show her the film, saying that Not A Love Story is inspired by the incident related to Grover's murder and not completely based on her and that it varies from the real life incident. "I refused to show Not a love story to Maria because she was threatening legal action but now it has been kept aside so I want to voluntarily show her the film," Varma said.
Varma also plans to show the film to the residents of the building in Malad where the gruesome murder took place. The film was also shot in the same building. "Since the original murder happened there I am organising screening of Not a Love Story for Dheeraj Solitaire residents at Fame Inorbit on Wednesday 9pm," Varma said.
