Did a fun-n-informative interview with Ram Gopal Varma today. He spoke about Nathalia Kaur, the Indo-Brazilian girl who features in 'Dan Dan', the item song in RGV's next film 'Department'. Varma says the producers are very excited with the song and it seems the song is more of a talking point than the film itself. So, is Nathalia his latest muse? Since he has openly admitted the love for the physicality of women, does he get close to actresses he works with? Interesting stuff for you guys to watch.
What about Madhu Shalini, the South actress (he was linked to her recently)? "Madhu is doing an important role in the film and we have also picturised a song on her," says RGV. The theatrical trailer of Department will be launched at an event on March 12 in Bombay. The film is releasing on May 18. Dan Dan promo will start on TV in mid April.
I spoke to RGV about his ambitious film on the 26/11 attack on Bombay. The film starts on March 10. He has cast new actors for the roles of various terrorists. He didn't reveal names of any actors to me. He considers 26/11 as one of the most significant events in the recent world history, next only to 9/11. He will be using multiple forms of Cameras for the film depending on the situation.
RGV had tweeted a few days ago about how much he loved the songs sung by Sunidhi Chauhan in his film Mast and that he alongwith music composer Sandeep Chowtha were dancing to it. I told Mr Varma, there must be millions of people who would love to see him dance in real. He said, "my heart was dancing and chances of people seeing me dance is not there at all".
