Ram Gopal Varma To Make Film On Nayeem
Hyderabad: Ram Gopal Varma, famous Bollywood director, has announced through Twitter on Tuesday, 23 August 2916, that he would be making a three-part film on the life of Nayeemuddin, a gangster who was killed recently by the Telangana police in an alleged encounter in Mahaboobnagar district. He tweeted thus: ‘ Just gathered entire information on Nayeemuddin from multiple sources. His crimes over the years are truly hair raising details. Nayeemuddin’s transformation from a Naxalite to a police informant to an underworld gangster to become an all time Criminal no. 1 is scary. Nayeemuddin’s story is so complex and has so much of content that it’s impossible to justify it by telling it in only one feature film. Am going to make a 3-part film in Nayeemuddin story. Rakta Charitra had only two parts. Nayeem will have three parts.
Ram Gopal Varma (RG) concedes that the life of Moist turned police informer turned Mafia don has more angles and twists than the story of Moist turned factionist turned politician Paritala Ravindra of Anantapur district in Andhra Pradesh. Rakta Charitra was based on the life of Parital Ravindra who was gunned down by Moddu Seenu in Anantapur town on 25 January 2005. Ravindra was the leader of a dominant faction which killed a number of persons belonging to rival faction. He became a minister in the TDP dispensation. Paritala Ravi who was underground as a Naxalite activist retuned to avenge the brutal murder of his father and brother. Later he became a mainstream politician. Another Gangster-politician Suryanarayana Reddy alias Maddelacheruvu Suri, a key accused in Ravi’s murder case, was shot dead on 4 January 2011. The factional rivalry between families of Ravi and Suri became the basis for RG’s movie ‘Rakta Charitra’. The multilingual film starring Vivek Oberoi and Surya as Ravi and Suri respectively created a flutter and angered the peace loving people. The first part of Rakta Charitra was released in October in 2011. For the second part RG visited Anantapur jail in 2009 to meet Suri who in turn traveled to Banguluru to see the rushes of Rakta Charitra-II just a month before he was killed in Hyderabad by one of his close associates.
We have to wait and see who the ace director would pick up to play the leading role in the film on Nayeemuddin. It is bound to create a lot of heat and controversy. That is exactly why the wily director selects such stories.
