“Not just Big B, but every other character is important in ‘Rann’?”- Ram Gopal Varma

Rann is up for release and it is quite visible that Amitabh Bachchan is dominating every moment that counts in the promos of Rann. However, director Ram Gopal Varma is clear that this was always meant to be the case. As per him, the veteran actor was always meant to spearhead the show because of being the senior most member of the cast as well as the towering personality that he boasts off.

Despite the fact that one does catch a glimpse or two of other important characters played by cast which is principal/supporting or established/younger, ultimately it is Amitabh Bachchan who is clearly spearheading the entire show.

“Isn’t that obvious”, questions back Ram Gopal Varma, “With the kind of personality and the stardom that he enjoys, it is but natural that Amitabh Bachchan would be spearheading the entire film.”

If one goes by the film’s synopsis, there are so many other characters like Sudeep, Riteish Deshmukh, Mohnish Behl, Paresh Rawal, Rajat Kapoor etc. who have been described to be quite important. What sort of space and time has Ramu managed to create for these characters?

“Every other character is important; otherwise it wouldn’t have found a place in the film. There won’t be any character that would feel short changed or left out in the film,” assures Ramu.

As expected from every Ram Gopal Varma film, whether big or small, this one too boasts of some enticing promos that have caught the nation’s attention. This was especially the need of the hour considering the fact that January is laden with close to half a dozen exciting films like Veer, Chance Pe Dance, Dulha Mil Gaya, Pyaar Impossible and Ishqiya.

Produced by Sheetal Vinod Talwar and Madhu Mantena, Rann is all set for January 29 release.
