Filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma is a veteran of Indian cinema who has not only delivered a few gems to Bollywood, but also to the South. Having films like Rangeela, Sarkar and Kaun to his credit, the filmmaker has experienced a difficult phase between the two. The debate that RGV has lost its charm has taken center stage and criticism has come in abundance.
Most recently, Ram Gopal Varma has joined Koimoi exclusively as he prepares for his film D. Company. Speaking of which, he also opened up about the criticisms that were leveled at him, and also how Satya took shape, and no one on the team took credit for that. Below you’ll find everything you need to know about the same thing, plus exactly what the filmmaker has to say.
Ram Gopal Varma was asked about criticism that RGV’s charm has faded. He remembered the time when Anurag Kashyap on Karan Johar’s chat show said “RGV was”. Responding to that, he said, “See, everyone has a mouth and everyone has an opinion. I don’t have time for people who have time to talk about me. Because I’m so busy doing what I love and what motivates me, I don’t comment on others. It’s okay, I won’t say they shouldn’t be saying that. It is their prerogative, and it is their right in a country free of speech. “
In addition, he was questioned if all the reviews he received made him make films like the one of yesteryear. To this, Ram Gopal Varma said: “Not seeing any filmmaker on Earth make a movie thinking he’s doing something bad, it’s not like that. Many times I have said this, all of my hits are accidental and all bad ones are intentional. Because no one takes credit for a movie. If ever me or Anurag (Kashyap) or Manoj Bajpayee can take Satya credit for ourselves, then why couldn’t any of us three repeat that for the past 25 years? “
Ram Gopal Varma continued, “The simple answer is we also didn’t know how we did it, the movie just took shape. Great movies are made, you can’t make them. If I take Satya’s credit and know how to make a good movie, then why am I going to make a bad movie.
