While we all know that Ram Gopal Verma never fails to stir a hornet's nest on Twitter with his tweets, things become awkard when while recently extending a birthday wish to Tiger Shroff, he called him a 'bikini babe'.The film-maker's nasty comments created a furore on the social media.
RGV had posted a shirtless picture of the 'Baaghi' actor and
captioned it as, ""@iTIGERSHROFF U are great at martial arts but if
BRUCE LEE ever posed like a bikini babe like u he wouldn't hav bcm
BRUCE LEE..Please think." He went on to post a series of tweets
which read, ""@iTIGERSHROFF Please learn machoism from @bindasbhidu
who even without martial arts poses more like a man and never like
this. @iTIGERSHROFF u might have a six pack of muscle groups better
than @bindasbhidu but his eyes and body language have far better
However on quickly realizing his folly, the 'Sarkar 3' director
wrote, ""Hey @bindasbhidu all my tweets on @iTIGERSHROFF are purely
as ur fan and not otherwise ..please tell this to @AyeshaShroff and
Of course by then, the damage was already done. Later, when
Tiger was asked to react to RGV's comment, the young boy had
graciously replied, " am not even half a man as my father is. He is
the original hero. Even if I try I can't be like him. But everyone
has freedom of speech. He is a senior director, so, there's not
much I can say. I try to be my own individual and express my
individuality. Some might appreciate my artistic expressions, some
may not. To each his own."
Now, papa Jackie Shroff too has something to say on this
controversy. At a recent event when he was asked about RGV trolling
his son, Jackie said, "He [RGV] spoke about my son [Tiger] but that
doesn't mean I will go and fight with him." Interestingly, the
actor is also a part of Varma's upcoming film Sarkar 3.
Further when quizzed about his opinion on RGV's recent
insensitive Women's Day tweet, Bindass Bhidu quipped, "He [RGV] is
a big boy. He knows what he is talking about... But I will not say
such a thing about a lady. It's his thinking."
