Anketa becomes Apsara, courtesy RGV's marketing skills!

Ram Gopal Varma is known for his brutal honesty.  But he is also a consummate marketing guy.  And that's what he is proving once again by relaunching Apsara Rani, the female lead of 'Thriller'.

The controversial director has been suggesting that Apsara Rani is his find.  But is the claim true?  Not at all.  Even Apsara doesn't think so.  

Well, Apsara was known as Anketa Maharana just till a few months ago.  The actress' Telugu debut is '4 Letters'. The film was a huge disaster in 2019.  It was followed by 'Ulalla Ulalla', a B-grade rom-com that also turned out to be a flop.  

These two flops have made RGV make over Anketa's image.  That explains why she is now being projected as a newcomer.  He spotted her at the audio launch of a film, where the 'Lakshmi's NTR' director apparently "loved" her dancing skills.
