Though for his last film RAKHT CHARITRA which was based on real killings, Ram Gopal Varma did meet various associates of Paritala Ravi (who was killed), their family members as well as Suri (who was accused for killing Ravi), he has no such plans for his next film A LOVE STORY which is again based on a real life incidents.
"Despite his A LOVE STORY finding it's inspiration from the infamous murder involving actress Maria Susairaj who along with her boyfriend Emile Jerome Mathew has been accused of killing her former lover Neeraj Grover, Ramu won't be meeting any of the accused", confirms a source close to Ramu.

Known for picking up hard hitting subjects dripped in reality, Ramu goes on to argue that when he could make COMPANY without meeting either Dawood Ibrahim or Chhota Rajan, why should he be meeting Maria and Jerome.
"For RAKHT CHARITRA I needed to meet the real people as it was a biopic and had so many characters involved. On the other hand for COMPANY I didn't feel any need to meet either Dawood Ibrahim or Chhota Rajan as I was coming up with a fictional account. Ditto for SARKAR which had references to Bal Thackeray but since the film wasn't entirely about him, I didn't meet him before completing it", says Ramu.
Extending his reasoning, Ramu says, "For A LOVE STORY, I am just here to examine what can go in the mind of a regular career oriented person who suddenly becomes a murderer. I am not making a biopic here. Period."
