The Man Who Killed Gandhi
While we all know much about the Father of the Nation, Mahatma Gandhi, thanks to the various writings and biopics made on him, Ram Gopal Varma has come up with the movie on the man who killed Gandhi. With the release of the poster of the movie, the film itself looks much promising and worth watching.
However, the first look as a poster of the movie has also landed up the director in controversy because the idea of merging the faces of Gandhi and Godse in the poster was not liked by the fans. Replying to the same, RGV said, Be patient till you have a look at the movie because the reason behind merging the faces of two will soon be unveiled.
Apart from this, what makes this movie worth giving a watch, is the self-explanatory title in which we would get a chance to closely know about the details of events and about the person who made this brutal mistake.
Kidnapping Of Katrina Kaif
The director has been well known to include the names of various actresses in the titles of the movie.

Arnab -The News Prostitute
The news anchor and editor-in-chief of Republic TV Arnab Goswami, has been a pretty popular face amongst people. While we all know about the controversial statements that Arnab has made after the demise of Sushant Singh Rajput addressing the Bollywood industry, the director Ram Gopal Varma has expressed his anger towards Goswami and explained why he is making a film on him.
Speaking about the same, the filmmaker made a statement, “That guy #ArnabGoswami is banking on the fact that we don’t have the spine and as long as he runs the debate he will anyway make sure no one’s point of view is ever heard and that’s his modus operandi anyway. I for one am feeling very strongly about this and I decided to make a film on #ArnabGoswami in which I will take the clothes off his facade and make him naked exposing the lengths and breadths of all his vital corrupt stats,”.
Apart from this, the director tweeted, “ARNAB” THE NEWS PROSTITUTE. After extensively studying him I mulled on whether the tagline should be The News Pimp or The News Prostitute though both are relevant I finally settled on a prostitute for its sound”. Well, let’s see how far this goes!!
