RGV Receives Threatening Calls

Callers have threatened him with dire consequences if he goes ahead with his political drama 'Rakta Charitra'.
Hyderabad | 29th August 2010
Well-known film director Ram Gopal Varma, on Sunday, received telephone calls threatening him with dire consequences if he goes ahead with his political drama 'Rakta Charitra'.

According to sources, the calls allegedly came from the Obul Reddy group of Anantapur. Obul Reddy is the brother of Maddelacheruvu Suryanarayana Reddy, better known as Suri, who is alleged to have plotted the murder of Anantapur TDP MLA Paritala Ravi.

Rakta Charitra is supposed to be based on the life of Telugu Desam Party (TDP) MLA late Paritala Ravi. Vivek Oberoi is essaying the role of Paritala Ravi in the movie.

Varma received threatening calls for depicting Obul Reddy's character 'maliciously' in the film. The callers sent letters to Ram Gopal Varma's Mumbai office, stating that they would obstruct the film shooting for projecting Obul Reddy in a unsavoury manner.

The film director said that he would lodge a complaint soon with the Mumbai police in this regard.

"Rakta Charitra is the story of a man's rise to power, and a story of an intense and blood-curdling conflict between two individuals. Moreover, the story is also the ultimate statement on the often heard disastrous consequences of a fatal mixture of caste, crime, family feuds and politics," Varma had said when talking about the film.
