Ram Gopal Varma in soup for 'sexist' tweet!

Ram Gopal Varma’s derogatory tweet on Women’s Day has landed him in trouble after a women’s organisation filed a police complaint against the filmmaker.

Ranragini, which has an affiliation to Hindu Janajagruti Samiti, filed a complaint with Mapusa police last evening with its local office-bearer Vishakha Mhambare demanding that Varma should be booked under Cyber laws and section 292 of IPC.

Varma, who is not new to social media feuds, tweeted yesterday, ‘I wish all the women in the world give men as much happiness as Sunny Leone gives.’

The complaint said Varma has gravely insulted women with his tweet on the International Women’s Day.

‘Such obscene well wishes have caused great insult to all women,’ reads the complaint filed by the organisation. Police Inspector Rajendra Prabhudesai, who is probing the complaint, said he is examining the case.

Varma said he will file a counter suit against Mhambare for ‘disrespecting 18 lakh followers of @SunnyLeone.’
He later got into a war of words with NCP MLA Jitendra Awhad on Twitter. Awhad asked Varma to apologize or ‘face the consequences, we don’t mind taking law in hand (sic).’

To which, the director replied, ‘If you don’t apologize to threat of taking law into your own hands, will formally register complaint, so let me know. Please note.’

Varma further shared a screenshot of Awhad’s Twitter bio where he had mentioned ‘right or wrong, I express what I feel’ and tweeted, ‘Right or wrong @Awhadspeaks expresses his feeling but when others do he will take the law into his hands WAHH! God save this country’s democracy.’

Meanwhile, Congress demanded that the Maharashtra government and State Women’s Commission file an FIR against the filmmaker for his ‘sexist’ remarks.
