Director Ram Gopal Varma has dropped a bombshell on social media. He has revealed his inspiration behind writing the 1995 romantic comedy Rangeela - often considered a milestone in contemporary Indian cinema. Varma posted a series of tweets on Twitter and spoke about his "one-sided love" from his college days. He said this love inspired him to write the story of Rangeela, which starred Urmila Matondkar, Aamir Khan and Jackie Shroff.
His tweets read, “The woman in blue swim suit is SATYA ..She was my 1st ever Love in my college days at Siddhardha engineering college Vijayawada.. is currently in the US practising Maternal Fetal medicine specialist and OB Gyn.” “Those days medical college and engineering college were in same compound for some logistical reasons and that's where my one side love with @PolavarapuSatya happened.. I felt she dint care about me because of another rich handsome guy and that's how I wrote Rangeela story.”
Varma added his movie, Satya and Sridevi’s on screen name in Kshana Kshanam was too inspired by her. In his following tweet he wrote, “My land mark film SATYA and Sridevi's name in KSHANA KSHANAM were named after @PolavarapuSatya.. Incidentally these pics are her today's present photos she sent me from Miami Beach.”

Varma rose to fame with films on crime, politics and horror in the ’90s and early 2000. But sadly, he has not been successful at the Box Office in recent years. He recently hit the headlines when a video - where he is seen dancing with a lady - went viral. Giving his clarification, he wrote, “This video of me circulating on social media, I swear on Balaji, Ganpathi, Jesus...etc...etc is not me.” ALSO READ: Ram Gopal Varma Is Receiving Constant Flak From Netizens For His Inappropriate Dance Video With Inaya Sultana-See TWEETS
