Threats can’t scare me, says RGV
After creating ripples with his trailers, RGV said there is no need for him to seek permission to make a film on what happened in public domain. He said dethroning of NTR and coup against him at Viceroy hotel had taken place in public. RGV said he is not scared of any threats. Admitting that he has been receiving "threats" from many over ‘Lakshmi's NTR’ that the film's release would be stopped and screening would be held back, RGV said he is not scared of any sort of threats.
RGV had also announced that he will be making NTR biopic with Balayya and subsequently made a voice over and released it publicly. However, things had changed quickly then and due to some reasons Ram Gopal Varma was shown the door. Later, Ram Gopal Varma announced ‘Lakshmi's NTR’ and that has been courting controversy after controversy and creating a lot of heat ahead of the film's release on March 22.
Amidst speculations that Ram Gopal Varma has made ‘Lakshmi's NTR’ as revenge on Balakrishna for denying doing NTR biopic with him, RGV has finally responded and clarified to those rumours. RGV said, "I did meet Balakrishna and discussed about NTR biopic longtime ago. But things didn’t materialised between us.
My idea is different from his one. I have always wanted to tell the story of Lakshmi Parvathy and NTR. I've been interested in narrating in that view point. But Balayya wasn't interested in that. We fell apart on that and we have moved on."
Ram Gopal Varma said this was the reason for not directing NTR biopic. He said he has not made `Lakshmi's NTR’ due to any ego issues or sort. Ramu said `Lakshmi's NTR’ will bring out the facts to the fore. He said NTR would bless him from heaven for showing true incidents of his life. RGV also denied ‘political objectives’ behind his biopic on Lakshmi Parvathy.
