In an exclusive interview to OTV, Apsara 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.”
Never even thought of Odisha as a talent pool for film industry..But going by @apsara_rani_ coming from there , both the rest of the country and Odisha itself should seriously look at Odisha pic.twitter.com/gGfUwiPwfU

When asked about Ram Gopal Varma’s controversial post about her own state Odisha, Apsara 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.”
Sir there’s a lot of better talent than me in Odisha but I just got an opportunity… I wish the rest of the country recognises this and take Odisha talent seriously🙏 https://t.co/Dbqoio9pKr

The actress further stated that “My existence is because of Odisha, but my identity of being an actor is due to Ram Gopal Varma. It is hard to say whether my existence or my career is bigger.”
Backing the Bollywood director, Apsara said, “At a time when everyone tries to be diplomatic, he (Ram Gopal Varma) has shown his honesty. He had not heard about Odisha and he wrote what he felt. It’s only he who can answer what’s on his mind. I had tweeted that Odisha is a treasure trove of talent. He wants to know more about the State and I will certainly gift a book on Odisha to him.”
