While Apsara Rani hails from Rourkela, Rock Kacchi is from Nabarangpur.
Earlier, in an interview to a Bhubaneswar-based TV channel, Apsara aka Anketa had said, “He (Ram Gopal Varma) was even shocked to learn that I was from Odisha. He was happy about it and excited as he had not met many people from the state.”
When asked about RGV’s controversial post about Odisha, the actress said, “I am no one in front of Ram Gopal Varma. To be very honest, I am afraid to speak to him directly as he is my director and like a father-figure. He is not my friend or someone of my age and he is a big celebrity and I cannot question him.”
