A few days back we had informed about Ram Gopal Varma's next film after RANN titled RAKTA CHARITRA. It's inspired by the story of Paritala Ravi from Andhra Pradesh who got assassinated in January 2005. So, like any other movie, the hunt for the right actor for the character was on. It has come to knowledge from reliable sources that RGV has found his actor in Vivek Oberoi to play Paritala Ravi.
''After thinking hard on every actor both known and unknown I have finally zeroed in on Vivek Oberoi as the most ideal choice to play Paritala Ravi. He has remarkable intensity in his eyes which I noticed in the making of COMPANY, a voice which commands attention, an arrogance in his demeanour, an enormous power in his stance, and also a certain vulnerability which makes one instantly warm up to him, which is what is needed to fit in a role of Paritala Ravi's profile'', quoted RGV.
''After a rough look-test done and when I saw the approximation of how Vivek could look like in different phases of Ravi's life, from being a rebel in the jungles to a political strong-arm man, I was absolutely convinced that my search ended'', he concluded. Here we present a few looks of the phases from Ravi's life used for the look-test.
