Ram Gopal Varma announced his next movie ‘Shashikala’ saying it is story of a ‘dearest story of a politician’. While the title suggests that the movie will have some similarity to former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J. Jayalalithaa's close aide V.K. Sasikala the filmmaker said the project is "fictional".
The filmmaker made the announcement on micro-blogging website Twitter.
The filmmaker said that he has immense respect for late AIADMK chief and Tamil Nadu Chief Misniter Jayalalithaa, who breathed her last on December 5.
Now members of AIADMK are requesting Sasikala, her close aide, to become the political party's General Secretary, but she is yet to give her consent.
Here are his tweets:
Just registered my new film title "Shashikala" it's the story of a very dearest closest friend of a politician and completely fictional— Ram Gopal Varma (@RGVzoomin) December 15, 2016
"Shashikala" is going to be a very very sincere from the heart Tamilan love story and absolutely nothing to with fictional non politics— Ram Gopal Varma (@RGVzoomin) December 15, 2016
Fictional non politics of Shashikala have a fundamental contradiction with highly truthful but assumed non truths of Jayalalitha— Ram Gopal Varma (@RGVzoomin) December 15, 2016
I immensely respect Jayalalitha but I honestly respect Shasikalaji a little bit much much much more— Ram Gopal Varma (@RGVzoomin) December 15, 2016
Jayalalitha ji respected Shasikala ji much more than she respected anybody else proves why I should call my film "Shasikala"— Ram Gopal Varma (@RGVzoomin) December 15, 2016
Jayalalitha seen through the eyes of Shasikala is much more poetic and honest thought than seeing Jayalalitha only through Jayalalitha— Ram Gopal Varma (@RGVzoomin) December 15, 2016
Currently he is busy filming the third instalment of the popular crime thriller franchise "Sarkar". The film features megastar Amitabh Bachchan, Yami Gautam and Manoj Bajpayee in pivotal roles.
