RAM GOPAL VERMA
Together, Ram Gopal Varma and Amitabh Bachchan have worked in close to half a dozen films. Though Ramu may not question the veteran actor on his intent of working with on multiple films, has he ever gone back and asked him that what really made him sign RAM GOPAL VERMA KI AAG in the first place? Have both of them ever sat down and joked around the entire effort?
'I don't think that 'joke' is the right word', Ramu brings on a rare smile here, 'See, any actor will do what the director has given him or her to do. At the end of it all, it is the question of trust. Making AAG was my fault and Big B knows exactly what went wrong in the making of the film. We are just looking at the cause but the cause is something which is known only to insiders like us.'
Re-emphasizing on the fact that things continue to be quite fine between him and Bachchan, Ramu says, 'Thankfully Bachchan continues to have respect for me as a film maker. He knows that the film didn't falter because of my carelessness.'
Now the duo would be seen in RANN and one looks forward with great hopes that this time around all the talks around the film are for a positive reason. A multi starrer that also features Riteish Deshmukh, Sudeep, Gul Panag, Neetu Chandra, Mohnish Behl, Rajat Kapoor and Paresh Rawal, RANN is said to be a hard hitting affair that promises to expose the functioning of media. With Amitabh Bachchan spear heading the cast while playing the role of the owner of a news channel, RANN is releasing in January 2010.
