This Friday Amitabh Bachchan’s seventh movie with director Ram Gopal Verma ‘Department’ released.

The veteran actor has earlier worked with RGV in movies ‘Sarkar’ (2005), ‘Darna Zaroori Hai’ (2006), ‘Nishabdh’ (2007), ‘Ram Gopal Varma Ki Aag’ (2007), ‘Sarkar Raj’ (2008) and ‘Rann’ (2010).

“After Hrishida (Hrishikesh Mukherjee), I’ve done the maximum films with RGV. He’s still the same person who worked with me in Sarkar seven years ago, but his approach to films changes according to the subject. He is keen to challenge himself and the artiste he works with,” said Amitabh Bachchan to a daily in an interview.

The actor admitted that there was a possibility of an eight movie with the director.

“He has discussed Sarkar 3 with me. It is still being written. It can only be said to be ‘happening’ after we lock the script,” he said.

The comparisons of his dhoti-kurta look in ‘Department’ is being compared with the same look in his ‘Sarkar’ movie.

“The voice, on which there has been some comment, came out of a cold I had on the first day of shoot. No special effort went into it,” he said.

The speculations are rife that his character of a gangster-turned-politician Sarjerao Gaikwad in ‘Department’ is based on the politicians like Narayan Rane, Lalu Prasad Yadav and even Balasaheb Thackeray.

“This is the first time I’m hearing something like this. I was under the impression that journalism involved factual reporting. When did it also adopt the trait of grave imagination?” he said.

When asked if he has ever come face to face with real cops Amitabh Bachchan that he had on many different occasions.

“I have, on many an occasions, voluntarily offered to be part of any campaign that the Mumbai Police may want to execute and the offer remains. In fact, some time ago, I’d discussed a film with an Additional Police Commissioner of Traffic for educating motorists and pedestrians on the correct traffic regulations. I’m even willing to fund such a film,” he concluded.

Along with Amitabh Bachchan the movie also stars Sanjay Dutt and Rana Duggubati.
