RGV’s Remarks On Baahubali, Viswanath Continue To Provoke
Mumbai: Maverick film maker Ram Gopal Verma (RGV) continued his arrows on Baahubali-2 ahead of its slated release on April 28 saying that the sequel will make most film makers feel like amateurs.
“I have a strong feeling Rajamouli’s ‘Baahubali 2’ will make rest of all filmmakers in the country feel like amateur TV serial directors,” Varma tweeted.
RGV earlier posted a pic with the ace director SS Rajamouli with a comment that Rajamouli looks sexier than him (RGV). To this, Rajamouli replied with folded hands saying, “Sir, leave me like this”.
RGV has also taken a dig at the national film awards recently. On conferring Dadasaheb Phalke Award to director K Viswanath, Verma said, “I have seen 95 films of Phalke but none has the standard of Karan Johar or Raju Hirani’s films”. He added in his inimitable style that Phalke should be given an award in the name of Viswanath.
Phalke made 95 films and I din’t see a single film equivalent of K Jo film ..I think it’s just being ancient not recognising value of present.
“Forget public not 1 in film ppl would have evr seen a Phalke film..A really relevant award for today will be a Raju Hirani or a K Jo award.
“Vishwanath gaaru.. nenu Daada saheb cinemaloo choosanu …mee cinemaloo choosanu… ..naa vuddheshamlo Dada saheb ki mee peru meeda award ivvali.”
