Ram Gopal Varma

It is perhaps a chalk and cheese equation but the latest buzz suggests that Ekta Kapoor’s Balaji Motion Pictures will be producing a film which will see Ram Gopal Varma adorn the director’s hat.

It has been obvious for some time that the charm that Varma brought to the box office has been lost in his recent films. Talking to Deccan Chronicle, a source from the industry revealed, “The script of the film has been ready for a while. Unfortunately, Ramu had some trouble finding a producer for it. With Ekta۪s backing, there۪s nothing to stop Ramu۪s film from being seen as the project to watch out for۪ in B۪wood”.

Tanuj Garg, CEO, Balaji, gave confirmation and stated, “the project is in the pipeline, but it۪s too premature to talk about at this stage”.

A formal announcement is expected sometime soon but it has been a fast-moving project so far.
