Ram Gopal Varma responds to Mahesh Babus statement on Bollywood

Telugu superstar Mahesh Babu stirred up a controversy with a recent remark that he made about Bollywood. When asked about his plans for a potential Hindi film debut, Mahesh had stated that Bollywood can't really afford him. Filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma, who is known to be quite straight forward with his words, has now responded to Mahesh's statement.

In a recent conversation with India Today, RGV stated that he doesn't really understand what Mahesh meant by his statement. He said, "It is his choice as an actor. But I honestly didn't understand what he meant by Bollywood can't afford him. I am still unable to figure out what he meant by that because the point is, if you see the recent South Indian films, they were dubbed and released and they made whatever money they did."

RGV then went on to explain the concept of Bollywood and further extrapolated his point. He said, "Also, first of all, Bollywood is not a company. It is a label given by the media. An individual movie company or a production house will ask you to do a film at a particular cost, so how can he generalise Bollywood, I don't understand that.Bollywood is not a company, so his context is not understood."
