Does Ram Gopal Varma care for Box Office?
You will not be wrong, if you conclude that Ram Gopal Varma is immune to Box Office results of a movie.
Everyone lambasted Ramu after Ram Gopal Varma Ki Aag bombed at the box office inspite of having a huge star cast.. He was suddenly off the list of the best directors in the industry.
His movies were seen as an example of what not to do. Overnight people had forgotten that the same man had made movies like Satya, Company and Sarkar .Many considered that Ram Gopal Varma had been finished as a director.
Sarkar Raj has been Ram Gopal Varma’s answer to all his critics who have written him off. But, there are rumours that this film is sagging away. Ramu however is not very bothered about all this and says its a norm in the industry. He cites this to be the frustration among other filmmakers who had predicted another Box Office doom for the movie. The ace director rather likes to focus on upcoming movies Contract and Phoonk. There are already plans to make Sarkar III.
One of the reasons why Ram Gopal Varma is isolated in the industry may be because he tries to excel in the art of movie making and not in movie promotion.
