Ace filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma takes pride in upcoming Telugu romantic-drama “365 Days”, as it happens to be the first film in his over two-decade career to have been cleared by the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) with a U-certificate.
“‘365 Days’ is the first U-certified film in my 25-year-old film career. In this movie, you’ll find love and affection but not crime and bloodshed,” Varma posted on his Twitter page in Telugu.

The film, which features Nandoo and Anaika Soti in the lead, offers a peek at the story of a couple post nuptials.
Varma had said earlier the film is not based on his marriage.

“It’s the story of most couples nowadays. It’s not based on my marriage. I penned the screenplay keeping in mind the emotions of a couple by looking at marriage from very close quarters,” Varma told IANS.
“I had a failed marriage. It was not because of my wonderful wife. It was because she got a bad husband,” he said.
According to Varma, marriage will soon be an extinct concept.
“A man and a woman need each other, but they can’t live together by getting married. Marriage will no longer exist and people will prefer to be friends,” he added.
