Filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma, who is all set to release his next Telugu movie Rowdy on April 4, is known for making controversial statement just before the release of his movies. In the past, he has done this to get the media attention, thereby scoring mileage for his films. The director is now at it again, and this time he has made an alleged statement against actor-turned politician Chiranjeevi.
On March 25, Ram Gopal Varma tweeted, "Am so jealous of telangana state's shamsabad airport .At Rowdy evnt saw Balaji tirupati airport n wondered if it will evr grow to shamsabad." Meanwhile, the filmmaker ranted against Chiranjeevi. On his Twitter page, he wrote, "@PawanKalyan: congress hataav desh bachaav... .chiranjeevi hataav raashtr bachaav."
This is not the first time that Ram Gopal Varma is taking a dig at the Chiranjeevi. During the release of his previous movie Satya 2, the filmmaker had made some critical remarks about his political power. In a series of tweets, he had said that Power Star Pawan Kalyan is more powerful than his brother Chiru. He was intended to divert the attention Pawan's fans towards his Satya as he had huge amount of fan following.
Ram Gopal Varma took to his Twitter page this morning to refute the rumours that he would contest against controversial Congress leader Asaduddin Owaisi. The Rowdy director tweeted, "Reports suggesting that I am contesting against Asaduddin Owaisi are false."
