Ram Gopal Varma’s thoughts on marriage and relationships
Recently, in an interview Times Of India asked RGV about his personal life and also Suchitra Krishnamoorthy’s confession of a desire to marry him. The filmmaker replied saying, “I have known her for 10-15 years. That was her way of (expressing) her memories. She was just joking; I always have a funny way of saying things.”
Ram Gopal Varma added, “I don’t want to marry anybody; not just her. I don’t believe in marriage anymore. It’s my wish.” He added, “I am not into relationships and too busy to have any kind of emotional entanglement. I like life for the pleasures it offers.”
RGV was also questioned about the fact when he once told Suchitra that he likes women’s bodies but not their brains.
To which Ram Gopal Varma replied and said, that the same thing is mentioned in his book, Gun and Thighs, and he still maintains his statement. “The brain does not have a gender. A woman can have it, a man can have it. The sexual aspect is very particular and specific. A woman has an extra thing which is her sensuality and which I admire,” he added.

Varma also has nearly ten films that he has announced.
