Filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma, who explored the Mumbai underworld as a subject for his 1998 crime thriller Satya, says its sequel explores a new kind of underworld which he believes can spring up anytime.
The trailer of Satya 2 resonates his thought.
"Underworld is no longer the same as it was in the period of 1997-2004. But then something else comes... (when) you think that something is completely gone and will not happen again, that is when it comes back," the 51-year-old said here Monday at the first look launch of the film.
"A unique kind of underworld can come now which will completely make the other underworld look like nothing. That's the point (of the film)," he added.
Varma's fascination with the underworld as a theme for his movies also reflects in his other movies Company (2002) and D (2005).
Varma is known to launch new faces in the industry and Satya 2 marks the debut of three young actors - lead actor Puneet Singh and actresses Anaika Soti and Aradhna.
While Satya marked the arrival of Manoj Bajpayee, Company was the debut of Vivek Oberoi. Besides, Varma gave Urmila Matondkar a huge platform through Rangeela in 1995.
Varma agrees there are "certain characters where you cannot do without established stars because you can use their baggage to push the character". But that does not apply always, according to him.
Satya 2 is slated to release on October 25.
