New Delhi: Ram Gopal Varma is one filmmaker who never shied away from being voyeuristic. Varma has made films such as 'Nishabd' and 'Not A Love Story' where the camera was extremely close to the subject, in fact cuts suggested that it might have touched the actors. If reports are to believed then the individualist director is now going to turn the famous cartoon strip 'Savita Bhabhi' into a celluloid character.

Butt-baring model Rozlyn Khan seems to have caught his fancy and is likely to be featured as the voluptuous Savita Bhabhi. The toon character will be called 'Rozlyn'.

Savita Bhabhi is probably the only authentic Indian porn character till date. If her cartoons have created such uproar then what would be the impact of a film featuring her?

Savita Bhabhi: Cartoon porn to RGV's film star?

Ram Gopal Varma will turn the famous adult cartoon strip 'Savita Bhabhi' into a celluloid character.

Barring some highly moralistic views in Bollywood films of the early 70s, normally a sister-in-law would be one who sacrificed everything for her brother-in-law. Then there was the other kind that would fetch unnecessary attention from devars such as Gulshan Grover and Shakti Kapoor - Savita represents the second type.

Savita Bhabhi first entered the Indian public's consciousness in early 2008 and her popularity soared following a spate of media reports announcing the arrival of the new Indian porn queen.

Savita celebrates her sexuality. She wears a saree, talks with respect and her wanton acts of pleasure are veiled in tradition. The popular pocket books of late 1990s and early 2000s drew their inspiration from such bhabhis who used to turn into femme fatal after their husbands were deceased.

Savita Bhabhi was the extension of such women-turned-assassins, but with a slight difference - she's not your usual heroines who will fight before succumbing to your 'so called' charm. She knows when to pull up the strings.

If you have been to villages, especially in the Hindi heart lands, you must have seen people who think cracking obscene jokes about sister-in-laws is not something to feel bad about. This tradition might not be openly observed in cities but it's there.

Bhabhi personifies the expression of sex to some extent, and the good thing is that it doesn't invite any morality debate. Savita was widely accepted because she had the traditional approach to porn. Her physical attributes would remind you of the ideal hour glass figure.

Further, she is helpful in every sort of work, from selecting a perfect bra to nabbing a dreaded criminal, and she prefers to be overlooked for her sexual escapades.

Recall the 'I am your baby, play with me' brand of sexuality portrayed by Marilyn Monroe that made her the queen of fantasies. Savita is not as sophisticated as the 'Seven Year Itch' star but she is quite high class as per the general Indian standard.

Initially there were reports that Bollywood starlet Heena Rehman has been roped in to play the title role and Shakti Kapoor and Vikas Kalantri are also expected to play lead roles in a film titled SheetalBhabhi.com.

Rozlyn has shown enough promise to emerge as a sensational actor, but will she be able to imbibe the essential traits of Savita Bhabhi? Let's hope RGV makes her a believable character.
