Ram Gopal Varma opens up on supporting Rhea Chakraborty and planning a film on Sushant Singh Rajput

Filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma had slammed the media trail of Rhea Chakraborty after her boyfriend Sushant Singh Rajput‘s tragic death. The actor’s family had accused Rhea of abetment to suicide and money laundering. He had tweeted in support of Rhea and had said that the actress is being hunted like a witch. His tweets had stirred a storm on social media. RGV has now called the social media platforms a circus that make a lot of noise and then forget.

“As far as social media is concerned, I don’t know what happened to the Sushant Singh Rajput case, I think people have forgotten. I don’t know what happened to Rhea Chakraborty too. I think social media has become a circus. They make a lot of noise and then forget,” RGV told TOI in an interview.

Be it tweeting in Rhea’s support or talking about Kangana Ranaut, RGV’s tweets often upset a certain women’s groups. When the filmmaker was asked about the opinions of others on his tweets, he said that ‘everyone has a problem with everyone and everything going on in the world’ which people eventually let it out on social media.

“I feel that a platform like Twitter is just a platform for barking dogs. I don’t think anything comes out of it. I have no idea what social media finally amounts to, like, for example, what happened to the follow-up on the Sushant case? As far as I am concerned, I just upload whatever I have to say and never read the comments. I just want to express my opinion; I don’t care what people have to say, because I am an expert in my opinion which is based on what I think. I don’t have time to think about people, who have time to think about me,” he added.

During the investigation into Sushant’s death which was followed by an alleged drug trail, filmmaker Sanoj Mishra had announced a film titled Sushant. He had clarified that the movie is not a biopic but a story about a struggler who comes to Mumbai to fulfill his dreams. Another film titled Suicide or Murder, inspired by Sushant’s death case, was announced starring Shwetta Parasher as the troublemaker.

And since RGV is known for making films on real-life incidents, he was asked if he was planning to make a film on Sushant’s life. To which, he replied, “It might, or it might not. There are so many things to choose from, on a relative level, for me, at least. I think I might even take it up.”

Last month, RGV had announced that his upcoming film D Company will be postponed owing to rise in Covid cases. The film, which is said to be based on the life of underworld don Dawood Ibrahim, stars Ashwat Kanth in the lead role, while the actor’s younger brother Rudr Kanth will essay the role of Dawood’s late elder brother Shabir Ibrahim Kaskar.

The group of fans smashed window panes of Varma’s office by pelting stones, reports India Today.

Ram Gopal Varma booked in Murder movie row

Telangana police on Saturday booked controversial filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma as per a court directive in connection with his proposed movie Murder based on an alleged incident of honour killing. A case against Varma and producer Natti Karuna was booked at Miryalaguda Town- I police station in Nalgonda district. The court issued the direction on a petition filed by P.Balaswamy, whose son Pranay Kumar was murdered in 2018 by his father-in-law Maruthi Rao who had refused to accept his marriage with his daughter.

Varma and the producer were booked under Indian Penal Code (IPC) section 153A (Promoting enmity between different groups on grounds of religion, race, place of birth, residence, language, etc and doing acts prejudicial to maintenance of harmony) and other sections of SC/ST (Prevention of Atrocities) Amendment Act.

Balaswamy, who had approached the court last month, sought a ban on the film. He also said that photos of Pranay and his daughter-in-law Amrutha were being used without their consent. Also Read – Corona Virus trailer: Ram Gopal Varma’s movie depicts horrors of the pandemic

Pranay, a 24-year-old Dalit, was hacked to death by hired killer in full public view when he along with his wife and mother were coming out of a private hospital in Miryalaguda on September 14, 2018. The sensational murder was caught on CCTV camera.

Maruthi Rao, who belonged to an upper caste, and seven others were arrested.

Rao, who had struck the deal to kill Pranay for Rs one crore, allegedly committed suicide in March this year in Hyderabad.

Varma announced last month that he was making a film on the story of Maruthi Rao and his daughter.

“On the occasion of Father’s Day I am launching the first look poster of a film based on the tragic story of Amrutha and her over loving father Maruthi Rao,” the director had tweeted on June 21.

“This is going to be a heart wrenching story based on the Amrutha and Maruthi Rao saga of the dangers of a father loving a daughter too much.”

Amrutha, who still lives with her in-law, had reacted strongly to Varma’s plans and vowed to fight a legal battle to stop the film.

“Its foolish to assume that I am going to show someone involved in a negative light because I strongly believe that nobody is bad and only bad circumstances make people look bad or make them behave bad and that’s what I intend to explore in ‘Murder’,” Varma had said in one of the series of tweets on the issue.
