Ram Gopal Varma

Like every director has his own forte, Ram Gopal Varma likes to make films on real life figures with lasting impressions. However, his next is going to based on a fictional character. He would attempt to discover former Tamilnadu CM Jayalalitha who recently passed away, through a close friend’s eyes.

Varma took to Twitter and wrote, “Just registered my new film title “Shashikala” it’s the story of a very dearest closest friend of a politician and completely fictional”.

For those uninitiated, Sasikala Natarajan is a politician based out of Tamil Nadu and associated to All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK), the same political party Jayalalalitha belonged to.

” ‘Shashikala’ is going to be a very very sincere, from the heart Tamilan love story and absolutely nothing to with fictional non politics. Fictional non politics of Shashikala have a fundamental contradiction with highly truthful but assumed non truths of Jayalalitha. I immensely respect Jayalalitha but I honestly respect Shasikalaji a little bit much much much more. Jayalalitha ji respected Shasikala ji much more than she respected anybody else proves why I should call my film ‘Shasikala’. Jayalalitha seen through the eyes of Shasikala is much more poetic and honest thought than seeing Jayalalitha only through Jayalalitha, “ the filmmaker wrote, in a series of Tweets.

Varma is presently working on ‘Sarkar 3’ which stars Amitabh Bachchan in lead.
