My next film is about black magic: Ram Gopal Varma

Bangkok, June 7 (IANS) After the underworld, Bollywood director Ram Gopal Varma is set to focus on black magic in his next film.

"'Phoonk' is all about black magic. I am working with a new team. It's a subject I want to experiment with images and with characters. I can do that only with new people," he told IANS in an interview here.

"Stars have certain baggage because of their stardom and their limitations about how far they can push their character," explained Varma.

"Also, I don't give chances to people, I take chances," maintained the director who premiered his much-talked about "Sarkar Raj", starring Amitabh and Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai, at the 9th International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) weekend here.

He also showcased his next release "Contract" Saturday.
