He has been teaching lessons with his work until now. Now he is going to teach direction lessons to the students.
Varma is going to start a film institute named RGV Unschool. He made the announcement through his Twitter account. He tweeted that "Along with New York based Dr. Ram Swaroop and Dr. Swetha Reddy, I am starting a Film School called RGV UNSCHOOL. Details will be given at a press meet tomorrow."
The aspiring directors can learn a lot from RGV. If he explains them the technical things about his films they will become great lessons for the youngsters. His new announcement is also giving a feeling that he might put a full stop to the direction and confine himself to the teaching.
Varma is known for presenting the Indian Political Trilogy, and the Indian Gangster Trilogy; film critic Rajeev Masand had labeled the series as one of the "most influential movies of Hindi cinema. The first installment of the trilogy, 'Satya', was also listed in CNN-IBN's 100 greatest Indian films of all time.
