Ram Gopal Varma

Ram Gopal Varma has always maintained that he does not believe in the institution of marriage and the only thing that keeps him going is churning out film after film.

Although there is news about him having a family in Hyderabad, the filmmaker has always been tight-lipped about it.

We stumbled upon pictures of his daughter, Revathy, and were surprised to know that Ramu has a daughter who is in her early 20s and studying medicine.

She dreams of becoming a surgeon and is in touch with her father. We present pictures clicked during the wedding of Ramu’s sister, Jyoti’s son, Suman.

Ramu who is shooting in Hyderabad for Rakta Charitra met with his family last week at the wedding.

Also present in the wedding were Ramu’s ex-wife Ratnashree and mother Suryavati.


Show me the money

Rupa Ganguly turned down the role of Vivek Oberoi’s mother in Rakta Charitra as she was offered a low remuneration

It is a well-known fact that Ram Gopal Varma doesn’t pay his actors well, but not everyone is willing to work for peanuts. Last week, Varma approached Rupa Ganguly to play the role of Vivek Oberoi’s mother in Rakta Charitra, but she turned it down as she was offered only Rs 2.5 lakh.

The story goes that an official from Varma’s office called up Rupa and offered her the role of Vivek’s mother in the Hindi version of the bilingual, Rakta Charitra. Rupa was thrilled to bits. However, her hopes were dashed when she heard that she will be paid only Rs 2.5 lakh.

A source says, “The 16-day schedule in Hyderabad was broken into three trips. Rupa felt that she deserved more than just Rs 2.5 lakh.”

Confirming the story, Rupa says, “I am honoured that Varma thought of casting me. I have seen quite a few of his films and think very highly of him as a filmmaker. But I would have preferred some decent money for the same. It was simply not a viable proposition.”
