Ram Gopal Varma continues to be popular amongst his leading ladies. One of his earlier admirers was Urmila Matondkar and now it's the turn of Gul Panag to be truly in awe of the man who has directed her in RANN.
"I feel that there is this mental connect that I have with Ramu", says Gul who has worked with the film maker for the first time, "He is such an intelligent director and every time I meet him, my respect and awe increases for him."
Detailing the reasons behind her respect for the man, Gul says, "For starters, he is not a frivolous guy. He isn't someone with whom you can have a small talk, discuss weather or get into anything which is rubbish. Every conversation that I have him is so intellectually stimulating. He is someone who can discuss politics, foreign policies and so many other topics under the sun. He is so well spoken and worldly wise."
Recounting some of her intense conversations with the man who has made many a beautiful lady look ultra glamorous in his films, Gul says, "There have been instances when we have scheduled a conversation for 30-45 minutes and eventually it ends up lasting for three hours. If you end up being on the same wavelength with him, it can't get better than that for someone who is looking for a real conversation."
