The real ‘Ragini’ in ‘Ragini MMS’ is none other than the 22 year old Deepika.. The girl is based in Delhi and though she has revealed her identity to a city tabloid, she still likes to keep some things secret. “I don’t wish to reveal my surname. You can understand why. But yes, Ragini MMS is inspired by what happened to me one night when I went out with my boyfriend. I was 19 then,” revealed the girl.
Just like it is shown in the movie, Deepika and her boyfriend (name withheld by request) had gone out for a weekend to a house in the outskirts of Delhi. “The area was very dark. Somehow, I got a lot of negative vibes when I entered that place. But then when you are with a person you trust, you know how it is. I did not pay any attention. But I was very uncomfortable throughout the night. All along, I felt somebody was watching us,” said she.
After a night in each other’s arms, Deepika was shocked to see the laptop they carried switched on. Her boyfriend had recorded the entire passionate interlude. “I was with him for five months already. I guess we wanted to take the relationship to the next level. He suggested we go to this place his friend owned. It was our first night out.”
The consequence of this shocking experience remained a part of Deepika for almost a year after that. The girl who believes in ghost says,, “Agar kuch dikh nahi raha tha toh wahaan zaroor koi paranormal activity ho rahi thi. I felt that that the place where we went was very eerie.” She adds that she had turned wiser after that shocking incident. “In fact, I never met him after that incident,” she says candidly.
Just when Deepika was recovering from the shocking incident in Delhi, Ekta was toying with the idea of making a film on the MMS scandals IN Mumbai This is when Deepika’ s friend who works in the creative department of Balaji asked Ekta if she’d like to meet her friend who had gone through a real life MMS incident.
Ekta met Deepika soon after who narrated her life story which has shaped to be Ragini MMS. “First I shared everything with my friend in Balaji, and then I also spoke to Ekta,” confirmed Deepika, who later signed a contract with Ekta.
Deepika who is presently in Mumbai wants to see how the film has shaped up. . “I don’t know why Ekta is not showing it to me. I am much stressed,” added the girl. A member from the production house says, “Deepika’s concern is justified. We’ll show her the film. But the release date is still a good eight days away. So, perhaps sometime next week.”
The MMS of Deepika is however not on the Internet. A Balaji source says, “We guess she convinced her boyfriend never to do that, and he too understood her perspective.”
