Ram Gopal Varma is a highly noted Indian filmmaker who has done films in multiple languages. The director is known to be a loose cannon when it comes to making his opinions public on Twitter, and he is at it yet again.
This time, the Company director has called ‘time of death’ on Hindi remakes, stating that remaking South Indian movies won’t work anymore for the industry, following the success of multiple dubbed pan-Indian movies from the South.
In his first tweet, he wrote, “If Nani ‘s original JERSEY from Telugu was dubbed and released it would have costed the producers just 10 lakhs whereas the remake in Hindi costed 100 cr resulting in losing enormous money, time, effort and face #DeathOfRemakes (sic).”
The director in the following tweets said that after the success of dubbed versions of South Indian films such as RRR, KGF and Pushpa: The Rise, Hindi audiences have taken a liking to the content and actors that getting the remake rights of these movies will be more difficult now.
RVG, as he is called, also made a bold claim that Bollywood will be in trouble because it cannot make superhits and now cannot make Hindi remakes of South Indian films. The director has attracted a lot of hate towards him on Twitter following his tweets.
An acclaimed Indian director, Ram Gopal Varma has done films in Telugu, Hindi and Kannada. His work in Hindi such as Satya, Company and Sarkar are still rated highly today.
