SURYA IN GHAJINI (TAMIL)
Ramu's forthcoming film RAKTA CHARITRA is just getting bigger & better by the day. Well how? First the maverick filmmaker Ramu chose an intricate subject (based on a real life story of Paritala Ravi from Andhra Pradesh who got assassinated in January 2005) for his film and roped in actor Vivek Oberoi, who had struck gold in his very first film with RGV, to play the lead character of Paritala Ravi.
Now Ramu has gone one step ahead and signed on Tamil film industry's superstar Surya for RAKTA CHARITRA. Surya who was the main lead in the original version of GHAJINI will make his Bollywood debut with Ramu's RAKTA CHARITRA.
Discloses Ramu, 'I decided to cast Surya in (another important character) Suri's role primarily because of the extraordinary intensity he has in his eyes and in his demeanor which I noticed in the original version of GHAJINI. The dynamism of his body language and the fiery strength of his personality almost threatens to burn up the screen.'
The Tamil actor will star opposite Vivek Oberoi in this two-part film, which tells the story of politician and alleged murderer Paritala Ravi. 'Suri is going to appear in the last scene of RAKTA CHARITRA- Part I, after the Ramanaidu studio blast scene as its only then when anyone ever heard of him,' Ramu reveals about Surya's part.
And Ramu is highly confident about his new film. Says Ramu in an energized tone 'I believe that RAKTA CHARITRA is going to be the most defining film of my career not because of how well I will make it but sheerly because of the material I have at hand.'
Even we believe you Ramu and are eagerly waiting for the movie which is scheduled for release in January next year.
