RAM GOPAL VERMA
Ram Gopal Varma and criticism goes hand in hand. Rarely is there a single month in a year when one doesn't hear any accusation or something negative around him or his films. Recently there was this entire episode around him breaking away with Bachchans though he shrugged it all away by stating that he was breaking away from the SARKAR family, not the Bachchan family.
What is it about him and his films that make people talk negative in spite of the fact that he has been consistently coming up with successful films at the box office and has a good line up of releases in the coming months?
"Well, the fact of the matter is that talking negatively is an intrinsic part of human nature", reflects Ramu, "Every human being wants to hear something negative about the other person or thing. That's what makes it all so much more entertaining than something else which could be positive. In fact people don't talk negative about me, I would be worried!"
There are quite a few of your detractors who are waiting for you to deliver flops in quick succession with multiple films of yours releasing. Any thoughts you want to share with them, especially with AGYAAT round the corner on 7th August?
Laughs Ramu, "Frankly, I am too busy to be even worrying about such things. I don't have time to reflect on someone talking good or bad about me or me thinking positive or negative someone else. I would rather invest that time as well into making films."
