The permanent home of controversy Ram Gopal Varma has proved his intellectual brain and made exceptional business with his recent outing GST. For those who think RGV has turned out to be a dud from being a creative maker, here is a brief explanation of his genius.
This sensational director has grabbed all the attention with his most controversial short flick GST. Titled as God Sex and Truth, this movie has been made starring porn star Mia Malkova as the sole and main lead. After the release of its trailer, many women welfare associations and media channels fumed fire on this director and accused him of playing cheap tactics by marketing porn. Whatever might be the case, this flick was made as a short flick and was officially released on Mia Malkova’s official website along with an online video marketing site for a couple of dollars. Initially, there has been very low subscriptions, but thanks to Indian media channels and government, the subscriptions raised like anything. The government imposed a rate to watch along with the tax which only helped the movie. It came to know that the movie which was made with some good 60 lakhs has generated a revenue of 9+ crores within no time. Mia Malkova fans and some young enthusiasts from India paid the amount online to see Mia’s glamour and RGV’s treatment. Thus the short film has become a bumper hit by collecting 15 times for the spent money.
RGV, however, left GST and started concentrating on his next with Nagarjuna. This cop thriller has got huge expectations due to the repetition of a cult classic like Shiva. This movie will be out in the second half of the year.
