Might make a movie on the SSR case: Ram Gopal
Ram Gopal Varma, who is known for his edgy movies, recently said that a movie on the life of late actor Sushant Singh Rajput might be on the cards. In an interview with TOI, when asked if he plans to explore the controversial demise, which is also related to a drug nexus, he said, "I think I might even take it up."
To recall, RGV had extended support to SSR's girlfriend, Rhea Chakraborty, who was at the center of a rather public media trial, after being accused of abetting his alleged suicide. Slamming it, he had said, "Rhea Chakraborty is being hunted like a witch." In this light, the filmmaker, who often stirs up social media storms, said, "I think social media has become a circus."
The Satya director also expressed his desire to helm a film on journalist Arnab Goswami. "After studying him I mulled on whether the tagline should be The News Pimp or The News Prostitute," he had tweeted in August last year. In an interview this year, RGV said, "For me Arnab is an example of what the future of the news media is going to be."
The 59-year-old, who was missing in action from Bollywood for quite sometime, was awaiting the release of his latest venture D-Company, which was halted due to the rise in COVID-19 cases. In a detailed chat, he said, "Apart from D-Company...I have another martial arts film and I am working on another one called Demons that will also release in the next few months."
Coming back to the SSR case, it has remained a point of discussion, even after months of his untimely demise. A hashtag called SSR Wrong Height Recorded was trending on Twitter recently, where fans speculated his height was changed on Wikipedia and IMDb right after his death. Another trend that picked up today was Injury marks on SSR's body, with fans speculating foul play.
