Ram Gopal Varma, Bachchans patch up
On April 26, 2011, Mumbai Mirror broke the story about the fallout between Ram Gopal Varma and the Bachchans.
Thanks to his continuous updates on a social networking site, we know the filmmaker has been disturbed since then. His car parked outside the Bachchan residence Jalsa, yesterday evening was all the proof we needed. Looks like, the director went out of his way to mend bridges with Bollywood’s first family.
Our source told us, “The recent reports about Ramu ruining the suspense of Dum Maaro Dum, which features Abhishek in the lead, and his statements about replacing Abhishek with Rana Duggabati in his forthcoming film Department has not gone down too well with the Bachchans.
Ramu has been insisting that he is yet to see Dum Maaro Dum and he was not the one who sent the text messages.
Also, Rana’s inclusion in the film had been purely due to date problems.
However, the Bachchans are far from convinced. Ramu, who has always shared a warm relationship with them and worked in numerous films, realised that he had to make amends.
Although, he did not feel that he was anywhere wrong. He decided to go and meet Amitabh and explain his side of the story.”
Though no one knows what exactly happened in the Bachchans’ living room, speculations are that the Big B might just be back with Ramu on the project. As for Abhishek being a part of Department, we just have to wait and watch. Both Ramu and Amitabh remained unavailable for comment.
