New Delhi, Jul 1: Ram Gopal Varma wants to cast Maria Susairaj in his next film now that the Kannada actress has been absolved of murder charges in the killing of TV executive Neeraj Grover.
Varma has already made a film ‘Not A Love Story', which is inspired by the events that led to the gruesome murder.
“Maria Susairaj wanted to become famous as an actress and she became famous as a murdress... If things went well it could have been a Rangeela for her,” Verma wrote on Twitter. “Now that she has been released I want to sign Maria Susairaj for a film,” the filmmaker, who has a penchant for controversy, said.
Maria's boyfriend and former navy officer Emile Jerome had gone to her residence in suburban Malad on May 7, 2008 where he got into a fight with Grover (26) during which Jerome stabbed the TV executive to death.
Maria and Jerome later cut Grover's body into pieces and disposed it in Manor forest in Thane.
The actress, who has already been in jail for three years, is expected to walk free after she was found guilty of destroying the evidence and not committing the murder. PTI
