If there is one filmmaker who is always in the news, it's Ram Gopal Varma. Just three days ago the maverick director announced his next film titled Rann - A News Story, on his blog www.rgvzoomin.com. This created a frenzy in the media as Rann is his only non-gangster-realistic film which is actually based on the backdrop of Media. Yes, Ramu is going to expose the behind the scenes truth of how a truth telling machinery like the news channels and the newspapers, by the very virtue of its positioning has no choice but to corrupt itself to become a money making and power brokering enterprise.
A lot of research has gone into the writing the script as per the sources. Every bit of information about the news channels and the newspapers had to be carefully studied. There are also talks that RGV is trying to seek permission to shoot many of the scenes in Delhi's prime locations.
Not only that, Rann is also going to be RGV's biggest film to date as it boasts of some of the Indian Film Industry's biggest star cast. The grapevine hears that there are more than 15 top actors from Bollywood being roped in for the film which goes on the floors in December this year. All the actors have more or less given their dates to RGV and are excited about the film. While some of them play media tycoons, others will be seen playing the roles of top politicians and industrialists. It won't be a surprise to see the actors with whom RGV has worked with before like Big B, Ajay Devgan, Ravi Kale, Kay Kay Menon etc, making their presence felt in Rann. But having said that, RGV can be quite unpredictable sometimes because it makes one wonder why he went to meet Mallika Sherawat on the sets of Hissss. Make no predictions; Rann might just see some news faces too.
