After SARKAR and THE ATTACKS OF 26/11, the next film I am producing to be directed by Ram Gopal Varma is titled “VIRUS”. It is going to be about an outbreak in Mumbai of a highly contagious unknown disease more dangerous than Ebola with a fatality rate of 100%
In the last 40 years, at least 10 new unknown dangerous viruses cropped up meaning any new disease can crop up anytime. All the world’s bioscientists biggest fear has always been, what if an Ebola-like Virus breaks out in a densely populated big city?
Ram gopal varma’s extensively researched story though fictional is a chilling portrayal of a very real and horrific possibility

A Note From Ram Gopal Varma
In VIRUS, a Student contracts a deadly disease from a visit to central Africa and soon it spreads like wildfire in Mumbai City. A panicky and totally unprepared government warns the people of Mumbai to maintain a distance of at least 20 feet from each other which becomes impossible in a 2 crore populated city
The death toll soon rises to more than a lakh and the government cuts off Mumbai from the rest of the country in a desperate hope to contain it in Mumbai. The uninfected in a panic trying to flee the city. But the administrators give extreme orders to shoot anyone who tries to escape. Because they want to stop the spread and do not know who’s infected and who’s not
Against this backdrop of a battle between the city’s scared people. And its helpless administrators, VIRUS will be a high octane human drama full of fear, tragedy, love, sacrifice, hope, and desperation.
