Ram Gopal Varma has slapped a case against a TV channel for showing
him in a bad light. He has sent a legal notice for airing a
defamatory programme on him.
A popular news channel aired a chat show titled 'Ram Dhamaal
Varma" after his recent release Katha Screenplay Darsakatvam
Appalaraju. The show, which consisted of noted journalists and
film critics, criticized him for making such a film.
RGV released a press note, which read, “With regard to an
extremely derogatory programme done by TV 9 on me titled 'Ram
Dhamaal Varma" where they have attributed many false quotes to me,
of which one example is 'prekshakulu verri vedhavalu", I am hereby
informing that I am initiating criminal action against TV 9 for
defamation with a criminal intent."
