Ram Gopal Varma has announced his next movie titled ‘Shashikala’.
Varma says that the story is based on ‘a dearest closest friend of a politician’.
It seems that the film has a lot to do with former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J. Jayalalithaa’s close advisor V.K. Sasikala. However, according to the filmmaker, the project is ‘fictional’.
Varma on Thursday night announced the title of the film. He tweeted:
Just registered my new film title ‘Shashikala’. It’s the story of a very dearest closest friend of a politician and completely fictional.
‘Shashikala’ is going to be a very very sincere from the heart Tamilian love story and absolutely nothing to with fictional non-politics.
Fictional non-politics of Shashikala have a fundamental contradiction with highly truthful but assumed non-truths of Jayalalithaa.
There is news of members of AIADMK requesting Sasikala to become the political party’s General Secretary. She is yet to accept the proposal, though. He tweeted:
I immensely respect Jayalalithaa, but I honestly respect Shasikalaji a little bit much much much more. Jayalalithaaji respected Shasikalaji much more than she respected anybody else proves why I should call my film ‘Shashikala’.
Jayalalithaa seen through the eyes of Sasikala is much more poetic and honest thought than seeing Jayalalithaa only through Jayalalitha.
Currently he is filming the third instalment of ‘Sarkar’. Stars like Amitabh Bachchan, Yami Gautam and Manoj Bajpayeeare very much part of the film.
