Why Is Ram Gopal Varma Quiet On Urmila?

When I  heard Ms  Kangana Ranaut  (famous  for, among other things, sending legal notices) calling my friend Urmila Matondkar  a ‘softporn actress’ the  first person I called to share my  anger  was  Ram Gopal Varma.

 After all it was Ramu whose Rangeela gave Urmila her  superstardom. They went on to do really interesting work together.Also,it is to be noted that once Urmila exited from Ramu’s cinema,a  horrible decline set into career.It was  akin to what happened  to  O P Nayyar’s career after  Asha Bhosle stopped singing for him.

 It was Ramu who introduced  me to Urmila. I  remember how warmly she met me  for the first time, as if we knew each  other since a  long time.

Cut to  Urmila being insulted  by Ms Ranaut and Ramu’s coy response: “I don’t think it’s  right for me to comment now.”

Huh?

This is the same man who has  a sharp vitriolic opinion on everybody from Pawan Kalyan and Arnab Goswami. Ramu,why the silence on  someone who played such  a big hand in  your career? It is this cowardice that is  going to be the death  of the Hindi film industry , as we  know it.What is everyone afraid  of? 

Ramu agreed  that staying silent is  not an option in today’s  day and age of social media. And yet he  chose silence on Urmila.

Sad, Ramu, very sad.
