Ram Gopal Varma Slammed For Comments About Presidential Candidate Droupadi Murmu

June 26, 2022 | by Priyadarshini Malavia

Ram Gopal Varma, the filmmaker whose tweets frequently get him in trouble, has sparked a new controversy. A lawsuit has been filed against him for a contentious tweet about Droupadi Murmu, the BJP’s presidential candidate, that included a ‘Mahabharata’ allusion.

Gudur Narayana Reddy, a Telangana BJP leader, lodged a complaint against Mr Varma for the tweet, accusing him of demeaning the SC/ST community. He claimed that the police have promised that they will be taking harsh measures against him. He further added that he doesn’t believe that Ram Gopal Varma will tweet or make such a horrible statement against anyone.

Soon after, Ram Gopal Varma provided a clarification saying that Draupadi from the Mahabharata is his favourite character but because it is an uncommon name, He only remembered the connected characters and therefore this was his reaction. He added that it was never intended to damage anyone’s feelings.

Another BJP MLA from Telangana slammed Ram Gopal Varma, saying the director tweets in a “drunken state.” He said that Varma always attempts to make headlines by making such outrageous remarks.

Ram Gopal Varma has also started using his Instagram to (seemingly) mock Droupadi Murmu and BJP. Take a look at his posts here:
