Ram Gopal VarmaThere's a new and absolutely irreversible mutual admiration club brewing between director Ram Gopal Varma and actress Sushmita Sen on the sets of "Sholay".

So taken up is the prolific director with Sushmita's performance as the widow Devi (played by Jaya Bachchan in the original 'Sholay'), that he intends to cast her again as soon as he finds the right vehicle for her.

"The problem is she can't be cast in any ordinary role. I always knew Sushmita was a superb actress. She has immense intelligence and she understands the medium fully. Now while directing her I feel she has brought to the widow's role the kind of quiet wisdom and sensitivity which I've never seen before," Varma told IANS.

"Sushmita's scenes with her screen brother-in-law Mohanlal are among the highlights of 'Sholay'. So far, she has mostly played talkative characters. But 'Sholay' proves that silences are Sushmita's forte," added Varma.

Sushmita is equally enthused by Varma's work-modalities.

Even when I was doing 'Vastu Shastra' for his production house, I told him that's not what I wanted. I wanted to be directed by him.

"Now I finally have a chance to be directed by him in 'Sholay'. I could write a book on the way he deals with actors. It's amazing ... he has a unit of hundreds of people and he knows only one guy's name on the set. That's how focused he is. That one guy has to know exactly what he wants from all the others on the set," said Sushmita.

And now Varma is looking for the first opportunity to cast Sushmita again.
