Actress Sherlyn Chopra has reportedly alleged film director Ram Gopal Varma of offering her adult movie and sending her obscene messages. According to reports by Times of India, she was asked about the controversy with Ram Gopal Varma in a recent interview. In the interview, she reportedly said that after she approached Ram Gopal Varma with her profile, the director sent her the script which had sex scenes only. Further, when she asked about the details of the project, the director allegedly said that the movie is for the adult market and she will be benefitted just like Sunny Leone.
As per the reports by Bollywood Bubble, Sherlyn sent a message to Ram Gopal Varma which read, “Hi Sir, this is Sherlyn Chopra. These are my pictures. This is my work profile. Can you let me know as to what you are currently working on? I would love to be a part of your projects because I truly enjoyed watching your cinema such as Rangeela, Satyam, Company.”
She elaborated the whole incident during a recent interview with Spotboye. “It was 2016. I remember having sent Ram Gopal Varma my pictures on WhatsApp with a message. Immediately his reply came. He says, ‘Here is my script, go through it and give me your feedback.’ I read the script and there was no story in it. I said, “Sir, there is no story in this. There are only sex scenes. So, can you please let me know what’s the plot?” He said, “That is it! What I have sent you is everything. Then I said, “Sir, how can this be? Ek Tha Raja Ek Thi Rani. Raja ne kiya Rani ke saath sex, khatam hui kahaani. How can it be like this?” He replied, “If you’re comfortable let me know, we can go ahead.”
As India.com reports, Sherlyn further said, “Then I asked him where would he release it, to which he said “it would be released in the adult market”. I said, “How can that benefit me? He said, just like Sunny Leone has benefitted from her past which is the adult movie industry, likewise you will also get loads of mileage.” I said,” Sunny was never popular as an adult movie star. She became popular only after coming to Bollywood. So while she came into Bollywood, you want me to go out of Bollywood and get into that industry. Why?” Then he said, “This is what it is. If you don’t like it, no problem” I said, “No sir, I cannot do it as I don’t have any PhD in sex. I’m not a sex expert and all you are showing me in your script is just sex scenes. So, I don’t think I’m fit for this role. If you’re making a film like Rangeela 2, let me know. And he said okay, as and when I do those projects (like Rangeela), I will let you know.”
She also reportedly talked about the obscene messages and said, “He didn’t send me messages on the Internet, he sent me messages on my WhatsApp. He didn’t force me to consider his film. He just said you read the script and give me your honest feedback and I gave him my honest feedback.”
“Yes, Ram Gopal Varma sent a video when I turned down his script. The video was very obscene according to Sherlyn. She then told him, “Sir, yeh kya bheja aapne, kyun bheja? Kya seekhu main isse?” Then, he said, ‘I just wanted you to know that sex is a very basic need. Both humans and animals need it, enjoy it and want it.” I said, “Sir, thank you for this gyaan (knowledge). I don’t need any more gyaan on sex, especially from you. I just feel that it’s up to us to protect our personal space, to draw boundary lines, and to guard them and maintain them”, she added.
