Varma postpones ‘Department’ shooting by a monthApril 5th, 2011 - 9:31 pm ICT by IANS
Mumbai, April 5 (IANS) Director Ram Gopal Varma, who wathced “Game” and “F.A.L.T.U.” instead of cricket World Cup final, says it was eye-opening experience and that he will postpone the shooting of multi-starrer “Department” by a month as he wants to revise basic economics of filmmaking.
The director, who gave hits like “Satya”, “Company” and “Sarkar”, quizzed the audience about the two films and took his decision after that.
“Why are big production houses suffering serious setbacks? Are they not in touch with reality? We were supposed to start ‘Department’ in April. Now we begin at the end of the May. I’ve already understood how the basic economics of filmmaking needs to be revised,” said Varma.
“Now I need to explore what audiences want. Not that I’ll change anything in my script. But what is that encourages audiences to warm up to ‘F.A.L.T.U’? Is it about making films with youngsters for youngsters?”
To avoid all cricket Saturday, Varma trotted off to a multiplex and saw one-half of each film.
“I can’t stand it. I can’t bear to be anywhere near a television set or anywhere any person who talks cricket. I went for the evening show, saw the first-half of ‘Game’, then I hopped over the adjoining screen to watch the second-half of ‘F.A.L.T.U’. Believe me, it was an eye-opening experience.”
