"Comparisons are inevitable, you can't escape comparisons. But once the audience enters the theatre and if we manage to set a premise, after that the film has to be true to the characters in the story," Varma told reporters in a group interview.
"Yes, audience will make comparisons between both the films, but I hope 'Satya 2' makes a mark for itself," he added.
Varma has clarified that "Satya 2" is not a sequel to his 1998 super hit gangster drama "Satya", which starred southern acotr J.D. Chakravarthy and Urmila Matondkar in the lead roles, but it was Manoj Bajpayee, a struggler that time, who walked away with accolades.
Now "Satya 2" is also launching new faces, including Puneet Singh, who plays the main lead. It will also introduce Anaika Soti and Aradhana Gupta.
Varma believes in spontaneity.
"I don't believe in preparation there is a clarity in making films as a director. I believe in spontaneity."
