VARMA SETS ‘BENCH­MARK FOR FLOPS’

Weekend Witness - - Celebrities -

WHILE dis­sect­ing the per­for­mance of

Raa­van on the film crit­ics’ rat­ing scale, filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma ob­served, “I have to bear with my flops and then also with ev­ery­one’s flops be­cause when­ever who­ever’s flop comes by, they in­vari­ably com­pare it with Aag.”

Seems like RGV hasn’t got over the harsh re­views he re­ceived af­ter Aag hit the screens. He added, “Well, I am happy that, if not for any­thing else, I at least set a bench­mark for flops.” While com­par­ing Mani Ratnam’s Raa

van to Aag, RGV com­mented, “I want to re­make Raa­van and I want to request Mani to re­make Aag.” Tak­ing a dig at Karan Jo­har’s My Name is Khan and

Kur­baan, he said: “I’ve got a bet­ter idea. I will make My name is Raa­van and Mani should make Raa­van ki Kur­baan.”
