Ram Gopal Varma, one of the most maverick filmmakers of Indian Film Industry was present here this morning in Chennai to address media on his upcoming film ‘Raktha Charithram’. The film marks the debut of Surya in Bollywood and is getting dubbed in Tamil and Telugu as well.
The Tamil version has been titled as ‘Raktha Charithram’ with Vivek Oberoi himself dubbing with his own voice as it happened with ‘Prince’. Interacting with media channels on this film, Ram Gopal Varma admitted that it’s a film all about a man’s journey of 15 filled with vehemence and vengeance. On his part Surya added that the film belongs to everyone as even the characters with miniscule prominence will add more depth to this drama based on real incidents.
Bollywood’s heartthrob Vivek Oberoi takes on the role of Parithala Ravi and Surya as his rival Maddelacheruvu Suri. Priyamani, who makes her debut in Bollywood with Manirathnam’s ‘Raavan’, enacts the role of Surya’s wife.
