For Ram Gopal Varma, weapons of mass destruction can also be termed as weapons of mass distraction. Read further – Life is a sexually transmitted disease. But seduction isn’t making someone do what they don’t want to do. Seduction is enticing someone into doing what they secretly want to do already. For RGV though, life and seduction goes hand in hand. Now do not jump off your seat when we break to you the news that in the near future, Ramu is planning on making a film based on the concept of ‘Woman as a sexual being’.
In fact, he has already decided to name his film Rifle which is going to be a tribute to the very sexy construction labourer he fantasized during his engineering days in Vijaywada. Read that? But why the name Rifle? Because RGV and many of his college mates used to call the woman ‘Rifle’. Don’t know why but they just did. Well, if the gang named her ‘Bomb Shell’ it certainly would’ve aroused more volcanic emotions in the hearts and minds of a thousand guys on the campus. What say? For RGV, Rifle was the ultimate epitome of what God really intended a woman to be like, before the cosmetic industry, the costume designers, the make-up people and the jewellery merchants came in and started back lighting that wonderful species called women, because he strongly feels that sexuality works more when it is ultra real rather than when it is enhanced by cosmetics.
RGV considers Rifle as the sexiest woman he has ever seen in his life. Ram Gopal Varma quotes in his blog, “If ever in my life I respected God, it was for creating ‘Rifle’. When I was studying in Siddhartha Engineering College Vijayawada, there used to be lot of construction activity going on there and she was one of the construction labourers. Me and many of my classmates used to watch her through our classroom window while a boring soil mechanics lecture droned on. It didn’t make a difference to us that her thighs were caked with cement dust and her hair was uncombed, she used to walk bare feet with her chest thrust out and used to look straight in our eye. She had more sex in her little finger than most women in their whole bodies.
To us she was just sex personified. Our imagination of how she would look naked under her clothes drove us insane. Agreed that our ages were such that even a telephone pole wrapped in a saree would look sexual, but there really was something truly amazingly electrifying sexual about ‘Rifle’.” RGV further adds, “I always felt there is a fundamental difference between beauty and sexuality. Beauty pleases your senses whereas sexuality controls your senses, or even more correctly, makes your senses go berserk. Your rational thinking gets lost and the animal instinct takes over. ‘Rifle’ used to draw out the animal in all of us. She in her non-caring demeanor and in the way she used to clothe and behave epitomized the word ‘sex’.
We all used to sit in the nights with textbooks on our laps and have endless discussions on the shapes and sizes of Rifle’s various attributes. It took us the tremendous strength of our combined will of all our upbringing, education, social programming, morality, religious strictures and fear of law which just about managed to control us from pouncing upon her.” ‘Rifle’ surely has done some kind of a ‘Stri Charitra’ on Ramu. She may be all ‘Agyaat’ to us but has most definitely intensified ‘RGV Ki Aag’ to such an extent that in the months to come you may just hear some ‘Rifle’ shots coming out of Ram Gopal Varma’s Oshiwara office. Beauty is a cruel mistress, is it not Ramu?
