Ram Gopal Varma is known for his outspokenness on social media, and his tweets frequently get him in hot water. His most recent post has also sparked debate. Recently, the director tweeted, “Who are the PANDAVAS if DRAUPADI is the PRESIDENT? And, maybe most significantly, who are the KAURAVAS?”

Soon after, Telangana BJP leader Gudur Narayana Reddy filed a complaint against the director, criticising his remark about National Democratic Alliance (NDA) presidential candidate Droupadi Murmu. This tweet is disrespectful to the SC and ST people. He calls for ‘Draupadi’ as the President here. We would not have minded if he had merely mentioned Draupadi, Pandavas, and Kauravas.

“We, the BJP workers, are offended by RGV’s comments,” Reddy told ANI. Ram Gopal Varma quickly tweeted an explanation, stating, “This was said just in an earnest irony and not intended in any other way .. Draupadi in Mahabharata is my faviourate character but since the name is such a rarity, I just remembered the associated characters and hence my expression. Not at all intended to hurt sentiments of anyone. ” According to Times Now, Ram Gopal Varma’s statements also outraged BJP MLA T.

RGV joined the north against south discussion earlier this year when Ajay Devgn criticised Kichcha Sudeep’s declaration that “Hindi is not our national language”. Sharing his thoughts on the same, the filmmaker had tweeted, “The base undeniable ground truth @KicchaSudeep sir, is that the north stars are insecure and jealous of the south stars because a Kannada dubbing film #KGF2 had a 50-crore opening day and we all are going to see the coming opening days of Hindi films.”
