Some stars do anything to promote themselves or their films . Film maker Ram Gopal Varma is one of them, who can tweet any thing on any topic on his twitter account. Recently Ram Gopal Varma tweeted, “Megastar SRK becoming ordinary fan, dwarf etc is as big a same blunder as what Kamal Haasan did to lose his stardom to Rajinikanth (Salman Khan).” And now Varma reportedly said that Salman Khan is already a bigger star than SRK right now. “He (Salman Khan) is already is a bigger star than SRK right now. Eventually stardom is about collections. The star whose last three films collected the biggest will obviously be the bigger superstar,” Varma was quoted as saying in IndianExpress.com.
Varma reportedly also explained the reason behind comparing SRK’s choice of films to Kamal Haasan’s in his tweet. “Films work on two levels. I don’t subscribe to the fact that it is the story that makes the film work. It is the emotion. Emotion can be created by a star. Just the sight of a SRK or Rajinikanth can give you a high. And all the film needs to do is not to bore you. It doesn’t need to tell you a story also. I think especially for superstars it is very dangerous to take up a story or different kind of a concept unless he is consciously making the decision. That is where I drew the comparison to Leonardo Di Caprio. Caprio is a superstar but the fact that he wants to push himself into very different kind of cinema is a conscious decision that he has taken. That’s up to him what he wants to do. But here somebody wants to become a superstar. He wants every film to collect 300 or 400 crores. Then you can’t afford to be like that,” the filmmaker was quoted as saying.
