Did Amitabh Bachchan influence Ram Gopal Varma to enter Bollywood?

Big B has inspired many to enter the film industry and that includes Satya 2 director Ram Gopal Varma as well

After barbs, megastar Amitabh Bachchan received praise from filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma (RGV) who credited Big B for his entry into filmdom.

Big B and RGV worked together in films like Sarkar, Sarkar Raj, Ram Gopal Varma Ki Aag, Department and Nishabd.

But relations between the two soured when RGV posted some negative comments on Big B’s performance in 2011 movie Bbuddah… Hoga Terra Baap.

On Sunday Varma tried to patch up by inviting the megastar to the launch of his movie Satya 2 and Big B obliged him.

On his blog  Big  B mentioned his visit to the event and even uploaded pictures.

“…a quick visit to a ‘party’ organised by Ram Gopal Verma, which has to be historic in concept because he never goes to one and never gives one … but he wanted me to be present for the introduction of his new film ‘Satya 2’,” Big B posted.

“Ramu in the meanwhile chose the occasion to give a history of his reason to enter films and credited it to me. Which was quite a moment as can be seen in the pictures,” he added.

Satya 2 stars newcomers Puneet Singh, Anaika Soti and Aradhna.

Big B praised the cast.

“May I say it was most impressive. An entire new cast and an entire new thought on the story … all the young talent looked and were seen to be doing well. I wish them all success,” he posted.
