In the book titled " Guns and Thighs", Varma describes Sridevi as the "Goddess of beauty" and why he cannot forgive her husband Boney Kapoor.
"It was a love letter... I was going overboard but that was my feeling. Everyone can have a crush on anyone, be it on a real person or a celebrity, you enjoy that feeling of high... It is almost like a drug.”
"...To see Sridevi making tea in Boney Kapoor's kitchen was a huge letdown. I won't forgive him because he brought the
angel down from heaven to the kitchen of his apartment," Varma said while confessing his love for the "Chandni" star during a session at Times Lit Fest.
Moving on, the "Satya" director was asked about his feelings for actress Urmila Matondkar, who was considered his muse.
Varma revealed in the book that capturing Urmila's beauty on camera was one of the reasons behind making "Rangeela",
which turned the actress into a superstar overnight.
"I honestly feel it is important for director to get obsessed with the characters. I think it is similar to how I shot Amitabh Bachchan in 'Sarkar'. He is obviously not a woman but I was feeling a high to capture his close-ups and highlight his minutest of expressions. That way, I don't see a fundamental difference between a 'Rangeela' and a 'Sarkar'," he said.
