Ram Gopal Varma aka RGV made more news through his controversial tweets than his movies. Mumbai court issued a notice to Ram Gopal Varma for poking fun at Lord Ganesha on his Twitter account. Although Ramu as eventually lead to quit the Twitter account a few months back. But what is done cannot be undone. His disrespectful attitude towards Lord Ganesha in the year 2014 came back to haunt him.
This complaint was filed by Vivek Shetty, Managing Director of Indus Communications. He filed the complaint against RGV’s controversial tweets on Lord Ganesha. Read his complaint “These tweets are per se outrageous and are on the face of it, hurting and inciting religious feelings and sentiments of people who practice, preach and propagate Hindu religion.” So RGV has to appear in the Metropolitan Magistrate’s Court at Andheri on August 8.
Three years ago, Varma had tweeted this, “The guy who couldn’t save his head from being cut, how he will save others heads is my question? But Happy Ganapathi day to morons”, RGV’s controversies didn’t stop there. He again tweeted, saying this “Can someone tell me if today is the day Ganesha was originally born or is it the day his dad cut his head off?”
These Offensive tweets on Lord Ganesha, lead Vivek to file a complaint against RGV. Following this claim, Ram Gopal Varma deleted the tweets and posted a series of mundane questions related to the origin of Lord Ganesha. Here is one of the tweet” Can someone explain how someone can cut off a child’s head who was just trying to protect his mother’s modesty? Am sure devotees know better. All concerned, please understand that my questions and observations on Ganesha are coming from both my innocence and ignorance on the subject matter,”
Ram Gopal Varma later apologized, saying that all his posts on Twitter which related to Lord Ganesha were not meant to hurt anyone’s feelings and was just put out casually from my ignorance over the subject. Anyway, we wish all the best for the director for everything that lies ahead of him. At present, the director is busy working on a web series titled Guns and thighs.
