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."
