After NT Rama Rao, Jayalalithaa, YS Rajasekhar Reddy, Savitri and the likes, we now have a biopic on Ram Gopal Varma. The three-part biopic will be supervised by RGV himself, who has written it. Director Dorasai Teja is planning to tell in each of the parts three different stages of the controversial director's life. If you thought they are short films, the answer is a big no. Each of them will be a 120-minute, full-length feature film!
"In PART 1, a young new actor is going to play RGV when he was 20 years old. A different actor will be playing the director in the second part. RGV himself will be playing the protagonist in the third part," the makers said on Tuesday.
What all is the biopic going to cover? From his college days as a student to his first love and his involvement in Vijayawada's famed gang fights, the films will cover them all.
"The first part will say how Varma cunningly manipulated to get a break and made 'Shiva'," the makers add.
The second part will be about his "love affair with the police and the underworld." This will be set in Mumbai and will have characters ranging from cops to superstars like Amitabh Bachchan. The third part will be called 'The Intelligent Idiot' and it is going to be about RGV's failures, the various controversies involving him and his views on God, sex and society.
