On International Women’s Day when everyone was celebrating achievements of women, filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma celebrated Men’s Day. Not just that if insulted adult star and Bollywood actor Sunny Leone and women as a whole on Twitter. He tweeted saying that he wished that all women gave men as much as happiness as Sunny Leone does.
Twitterati was quick to shut him down with nastier tweets. Varma garnered the wrath of Twitterati for his sexist tweets with people trolling him. Known for offending people with his opinions, Varma was at it again as he tweeted, “I wish all the women in the world give men as much happiness as Sunny Leone gives”. After the police complaint was filed, RGV threatened a counter FIR.
Pratiksha Kargaonkar, belonging to Women’s branch of Hindu group Hindu Janajagruti, filed a complaint against him in Goa. The complaint states that insulting a woman’s prestige is a cognizable offense under the Indecent Representation of Women Act, hence an offense should be registered against the director under Cyber Law for victimization of Women. Pratiksha has also demanded that Varma’s Twitter account be permanently blocked.
In earlier tweets, RGV gave a piece of his mind to his critics. “The negative noise towards my tweet on @SunnyLeone arises from ultimate hypocrisy. She has more honesty and more self-respect than any woman,” he wrote. The director added, “@Sunny Leone doesn’t have millions following because of her body as 1000’s of women have great bodies…Her greatness is in standing by her pride”. He even declared that he would make a short film on the adult star-turned-actor.
It is not the first time Varma took to Twitter to defame celebrities. He has in the past mocked at various actors and sought the attention of Twitterati. However this time, he crossed all limits and went to insult women on a day when they are celebrated. He tweeted saying, “Is there no #MensDay because all days in the year belong to only men and the women were given just only one day?” Then he went on to say, “Women’s day should be called #MensDay because men celebrate women much more than women celebrate women”.
His misogyny did not end here, he also tweeted saying, “Women on at least #MensDay should not nag or scream and at least give some freedom to men”. Last month, it was a picture of goddess Saraswati and a superimposed map of Andhra Pradesh on her veena, which got the filmmaker in trouble. He was also criticized for his tweet on Chiranjeevi’s Khaidi No 150 poster, where he called it the “height of narcissism”.
