In an exclusive interview to OTV, Apsara said “He (Ram Gopal Varma) was even shocked to learn that I was from Odisha. He was happy about it and excited as he had not met many people from the State.”
When asked about Ram Gopal Varma’s controversial post about her own state Odisha, Apsara rani said, “I am no one in front of Ram Gopal Varma. To be very honest, I am afraid to speak to him directly as he is my director and like a father-figure. He is not my friend or someone of my age and he is a big celebrity and I cannot question him.”
