When you enter the entertainment industry, the one thing that keeps you going is image and reputation. It creates the much needed aura for people to seek your services and give you opportunities. But then there are also those rare men who don’t really care about their image but their well-wishers do.
We are talking about the eccentric genius Ram Gopal Varma and you are well aware how he has been in the last few years. But recently, one of his protege, the Bollywood actor Manoj Bajpayee was approached to do the remake of the movie A Shyam Gopal Varma Film. Incidentally, this was meant to be a psycho-analysis of RGV’s mindset.
However, it was projected as the life story of RGV. Speaking about it, Manoj reportedly revealed he declined the role because he is well aware of the genius that RGV is and was not comfortable with the idea of doing a film which studies about his mindset. The Telugu version bombed big time and now Manoj’s gesture has safeguarded RGV’s image from declining further.
