Ram Gopal Varma has done it again, the director has landed himself into trouble due to a number of objectionable tweets he posted on Lord Ganesh on the eve of Ganesh Chaturthi.
In the midst of his objectionable tweets, he even mocked the practice of Ganesh Chaturthi and tweeted, ""Happy Ganesh Chaturthi. May this day, August 29, bring happiness to everybody so that there will be no problems from August 30." Not just the Mumbai police even the Saroornagar police registered a case against the filmmaker for his controversial statements on Ganesha Chathurthi celebrations. However, jurisdictional issues existed for them since RGV lives in Mumbai.
Activists of the BJP, RSS and VHP staged a protest and burnt RGV's effigy on Sunday at Tenali. BJP Tenali convener P. Ramak-rishna strongly condemned the remarks of RGV and sought stern action against him.
Sumit Khambekar, chief of the Mumbai unit of the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena, and social activist Shahzaad Poonawala filed separate complaints against Varma in police stations in the city.
Sumit said that Ram Gopal Varma's tweets hurt the sentiments of a large number of Hindus, especially devotees of Lord Ganesh. The police booked RGV for deliberately hurting religious feelings and for promoting enmity between communities. Social activists and organisations, including the Vishwa Hindu Parishad, have condemned Varma's comments and demanded an apology from him as well as a police action.
As the twitteratis started to get aggressive over his ungodly tweets, Ram Gopal Varma tried to defend himself and apologized for hurting the sentiments of people, "All tweets I put on Ganesha were in my usual manner but unintended by me to hurt anyone's sentiments...but if they did I sincerely apologize", he tweeted.
