Ram Gopal Varma to make a web series on gangsters

Thursday, May 04, 2017

Ram Gopal Varma has made a career out of gangster movies and now that he is venturing into the digital space, the filmmaker wants to focus on some of the biggest underworld rivalries.

The 'Satya' director says he is attracted to gangster dramas because 'normal families' are boring.

"I am working on a web-series that is based on the underworld and crime. It is going to be more real than what I have done so far in my films," Varma told PTI.

The 'Satya' helmer says his web series 'Guns and Thighs', which is named after his memoir, will chronicle the fights that finished the underworld in Mumbai.

"I am concentrating mainly on the time when Chota Rajan and Dawood Ibrahim broke up in 1996. So, between Daya Nayak, Praful Bhosale, Pradeep Sharma and Sachin Vale and others, 300 people (gangsters) were killed in the period of four years which technically finished the underworld.

"My series will focus mainly on that but it will have a lot of flashbacks in the '80s with Karim Lala, Haji Mastan and others," he adds.

Varma says he is always on the look out for interesting stories of gangsters and most of them come through his sources in the police department.

"I am a writer so I look for the emotional and psychological aspects of every incident. The stories of the underworld and crime never tire me because I feel normal families are boring. I am intrigued by this world," he says.

The filmmaker is looking forward to the release of his next directorial venture 'Sarkar 3', starring Amitabh Bachchan in the lead role.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)You may find it difficult to concentrate on work the spontaneity you seek is missing from your life. You seem to lack interest in anything.. There is a tendency for you to read meanings into what people say to you. Stop being on the defensive and hypersensitive unnecessarily. There are problems in a relationship. Accept the changing situation and flow with the tide and you will find it a lot easier to get by.
