Ram Gopal Varma Insults Sunny Leone, Courts Controversy
Mumbai: Bollywood director Ram Gopal Varma is at it again. He deliberately tweeted controversial remarks on the international Women’s Day and all the rights activists and politicos have been walking into the trap. He tweeted saying that he hoped all women in the world would give him happiness as Sunny Leone does. That has led to a series of statements condemning him.
The first tweet he tweeted was, ‘Happy Women’s Day to all women around the world because it is u women who make the world go around.’ Then he gave the tweet referring to Sunny Leone. After many activists threatened him with dire consequences, he tweeted, ‘Ok if you want to take law into your own hands I will be available at my office in Veeradesai road next to Empire dubbing studio.’ Then after further provocation he said,’ should kick u out for threatening to take law into hands in our sovereign democratic country.’ He had a running battle of tweets with one Dr Jitendra Awhad. ‘All illiterates who did not understand my earlier two tweets on Sunny Leone at least go through dictionary unless you are uneducated for that too.’
After Vidya Chavan, NCP MLC, threatened to shoe him and asked if he had no mother and sisters, RGV replied, ‘My mom, sister,daughter and my grandmother mainly respect me for my honesty in openly expressing my respect towards Sunny Leone’s honesty. ‘
The controversial tweet that provoked the women rights activists was, “I wish all the women in the world give me as much happiness as Sunny Leone gives.” He went on the defensive after a complaint was lodged against him by noted activist Vishakha Mhambre. BJP leaders said they would not allow Ram to shoot in Mumbai. They called it cheap publicity mongering. RVG’s sexist rant was described as spewing garbage on twitter. He was taken to task for insulting Sunny Leone.
Ram had been in limelight for wrong reasons most of the times. But this time he has a valid reason to court controversy. His picture with Big B, Sarkar, is due to release shortly and he needs publicity. Ram believes that any publicity is good publicity.
