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 many groups."
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 him."
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."
