He may not be having a good run as a filmmaker right now but there's no denying the talent of Ram Gopal Varma. Films such as Rangeela (1995), Satya (1998) and Company (2002) are proof of his cinematic brilliance as well as versatility. He may be in news more for his Twitter profile these days but all it'll take is one good film for the man to bounce back.
And if the first look of his upcoming Sarkar 3 is anything to go by, the wait might be rather short.
Over the weekend, RGV took to social media to reveal details about the film's cast and we have to admit, he's managed to get a whole bunch of powerhouse actors in one film.
The third part of his Indian-Godfather series, Sarkar, this one sees the return of Amitabh Bachchan as Subhash Nagre, the dreaded Mumbai-based mafia king known by one and all as Sarkar.
