Although, Ram Gopal Varma (RGV) is known for his outspoken attitude and even recently wrote few nasty tweets against porn-turned actor Sunny Leone, but Ronit Roy is all praises for him.
Ronit said that Sarkar 3 director RGV, who has directed him in the Amitabh Bachchan starrer film, is misunderstood as a person.
The forthcoming political thriller stars Amitabh Bachchan, Jackie Shroff, Manoj Bajpayee, Amit Sadh and Yami Gautam in pivotal roles.
How was it working in a film with so much star power?
"It keeps you alert and aware. You are extra focussed on your work and disciplined... Not that I am anytime not focussed on my work or there is not a bone of indiscipline in me... It is a big film and franchise, and for me, it has been a great ride," Ronit told.
Talking about Varma, Ronit said: "He is an enigma by himself. So it took me two, three days to understand the man that he is. Once I understood him, (I knew) he is great person, director... As a person, he is very misunderstood I must say."
Varma often lands in the midst of controversies for his outspoken ways.
The 51-year-old actor said that not many people can understand the maverick filmmaker.
"To understand him you have to be an artiste yourself, you have to be a little eccentric yourself. He is a man who has the courage to call a spade a spade and he says what's in his heart," added Ronit.
As a director, Varma has amazing clarity, said Ronit.
"He knows exactly what he is doing and what he wants... He is very clear what he wants at the same time he is not rigid. He is very quick on the uptake. If you do or suggest something which is adding to the flavour, he gets it immediately... He is a thinker," he said.
