RGV returns to romance genre with '365 Days'
Filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma, popular for his gangster and horror films, is making a comeback to the romance genre with upcoming Telugu drama "365 Days" after over a decade. RGV's last known popular romantic film was "Prema Katha", which even won the prestigious Nandi award in 1999.
"This project marks Ramu sir's grand comeback to the romance genre. I think it's his first romantic musical after 'Rangeela', and it's going to be a treat for all those who closely follow his films. It will also be released in Hindi," Nandoo, who plays the lead in the film, told IANS.
"It's a special film for me as well. He has spent about Rs.4 crore on the project, and for a song, he spent a whopping Rs.35 lakh," he said. Nandoo and his co-star Anaika Soti spent about 60 hours shooting for a special song in the film.
"We shot for the song for about five days at a stretch. Initially, the idea of a rain song sounded fun, but by the time we finished shooting the song, we were completely exhausted," he added. The film revolves around a young couple, who rush into marriage, only to realise that their expectations don't match. "The story revolves around 365 days in the life of a couple and how time distances them," said Nandoo.
