Maverick filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma's visit to the Taj Mahal hotel along with Chief Minister Vilasrao Deshmukh and his actor son Ritesh last Sunday resulted in a mass public outcry. Citizens across the country could not fathom what RGV and Ritesh were doing inside the Taj along with the CM's convoy. Irrespective of RGV clarifying that he just happened to be there, people don't seem to be in any mood of forgetting the incident.
The very next day saw Deputy Chief Minister R.R. Patil resign from his post and soon there were protests all around pressuring Maharashtra Chief Minister- Vilasrao Deshmukh to step down as well. While the debate still continues, this cartoonist from popular tabloid Mid-Day seems to be in the mood for some fun. The cartoon shows an extremely worried and harrowed Vilasrao Deshmukh pleading with RGV for a role in one of his films. RGV finally seems to have agreed to give Senior Deshmukh the role of the hero's father and even asks if the Patils would be interested in being part of his future project. With the situation being serious and grim over the last few days, this cartoon, though hilarious, surely carries a sarcastic tone.
