Coming back to the topic, Ram Gopal Varma recently sat for an interview with Film Companion South where he spoke about his life, films, and whatnot. In one of the segments, he was asked about the last film he watched in theatre and the filmmaker answered RRR. Further, when he was asked about the experience, he told, “I felt it was like a circus, you know, I don’t mean it in a bad way because circus immediately gives you feeling of the clown, that’s not the truth.”
Explaining his stance about calling RRR like a circus, Ram Gopal Varma adds, “There are a lot of acrobatics happening. Like when Ram Charan and Taarak (Jr NTR), rescued that kid from the water it felt like it was like a Gemini circus. Last time I saw something like that was in the Gemini circus and then the animals and all that.”
Further in the interview, RGV was also asked about his best memory with Mani Ratnam, to this he replied, “See, he doesn’t like any of my films and I don’t like any of his films. So, my best memory was when we both together went for a script discussion. He didn’t listen to me and I didn’t listen to him, but we put our names in Thiruda Thiruda and Gaayam.”
