Filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma has revealed he is soon going to launch an online theatre called RGV Talkies, and its first release, “Single X”, will mark his debut as a short-film director.
Making short films has become a trend in recent years. Especially for aspiring directors and actors, it has become the easiest and the most cost-effective route to prove their skills and talent. For some, it is a way to express their views without fear. There is absolutely no worry of the Censor Board and length. Of late, Ram Gopal Varma, who is known for making films on controversial subjects, has reportedly been taking an interest in this trend.
On Monday morning, Varma took to his Twitter page to share some news with his followers. In a series of tweets, he revealed the reason for the venture and the kind of short films viewers can expect from RGV Talkies, which will release such films from erotic, crime, horror and a host of other genres.
The director also made it clear that RGV Talkies will not release short films on God, sports, romantic comedies and sex comedies. He also talked of launching the first look of his debut short film “Single X”. Here is the series of tweets posted by Ram Gopal Varma on Monday morning:
