When Ram Gopal Varma decided to make a South film titled Sridevi, many thought the film would be related to the evergreen diva and Bollywood actress Sridevi. However, the posters of the film left many shocked. The posters show a woman flaunting her midriff, legs in a sexy saree, as a teen is looking lecherously at them.
But Boney Kapoor surely wasn't happy about his wife's name being dragged in a film which talks about a young boy's obsession with a much older woman. In fact, the producer husband of the actress has sent a legal notice to Ram Gopal Varma on the same. From what we hear, prior to taking a legal action, Boney Kapoor had even confronted RGV asking him to change the title, but knowing the filmmaker's adamant nature, Ram Gopal Varma refused to budge.
Apart from Sridevi's husband, it is also her fans who are really irked by these pictures. In fact, RGV is being flaked by the actress' well wishers for using her name in such a 'cheap' manner.
On the other hand, Ram Gopal Varma though hasn't commented on this legal controversy, he has been talking about the upcoming film Sridevi on his Facebook wall. "The designs of "Sridevi" given below clearly indicate the story line of "Sridevi" which is about a teen's infatuation towards an older woman…what never ceases to amaze me is the power of a photographic image..these images are testimony to the fact that one still picture can tell so much about a subject matter giving credence to the phrase "A picture is the equivalent of thousand words".
