MUMBAI: Ram Gopal Varma may be going through a rough patch professionally. But there’s no dearth of fans and supporters among the technicians of Bollywood.
Choreographer Ahmed Khan is all set to pay Ramu a homage by making a heist caper called ‘Khallas’. Ironically the film is to feature Sanjay Dutt in the lead. The title of Ahmed Khan’s film is the title of the popular item song in Ram Gopal Varma’ s ‘Company’.
The film which will star Sanjay Dutt as a retired security officer who is recruited back into the agency by his boss (Nana Patekar) is directly inspired by the song on the Ram Gopal Varma film.
Ahmed says he has not yet formally asked Ramu for the title. Ramu on his part said he’d gladly part with the title. Says Ahmed, “I am the biggest Ram Gopal Varma fan. I got my first big break with Ramu in ‘Rangeela’. Then I did a song in ‘Satya’ for him. After that we didn’t work together until ‘Department’ where I choreographed a song that was banned by the censorboard. I keep telling Ramu that he , A R Rahman and I should get together again to do another ‘Rangeela’.”
