Filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma’s movie Not A Love Story has a few intimate scenes. The director has now apologised to actress Mahie Gill for making her give those shots many times. “The film required some intimate scenes and I wanted Mahie to do them a couple of times to get the right lighting, sometimes for camera angles and I know it’s not very easy to give such shots in front of the whole unit. So I just sent her a text message in a lighter vain apologising for that,” Varma says.
Mahie on the other hand said she was only too glad to be a part of such a hard hitting movie. “The intimate scenes were no big deal. Once you get into the skin of the character it is all okay. We are actors after all! Ramu was more embarrassed than I was. I remember once he even left the sets. He keeps apologising to me, and I have to keep reassuring him that it’s all okay,” said Mahie.
The movie has just two songs, one of which is a revisited version of the song Rangeela Re from Varma’s 1995 hit film Rangeela. “I have used what this song Rangeela Re represents in terms of its spirit, its joy, its happiness, its attitude and everything positive in life in a completely opposite way and it became the story of a girl who wanted to be an actress but went on to a completely different track,” said the 51-year-old director. Not a Love Story is a crime thriller based on the gruesome murder of Neeraj Grover in 2008 that led to the arrest of Emile Jerome and Maria Susairaj.
The movie is set to release on August 19.
