Filmmaker Ram Gopal Verma is known for making sensational and controversial movies and statements. Be it real life or the reel ones he makes, RGV is known to never mince his words.
Recently, RGV in a series of tweet bashed journalist Arnab Goswami and announced his intention to make a film titled ‘Arnab- The News Prostitute’.
In a series of tweets, he wrote:
“I for one am feeling very strongly about this and I decided to make a film on #ArnabGoswami in which I will take the clothes off his facade and make him naked exposing the lengths and breadths of all his vital corrupt stats.”
“My film on him is titled “ARNAB” THE NEWS PROSTITUTE. After extensively studying him I mulled on whether the tagline should be The News Pimp or The News Prostitute though both are relevant I finally settled on prostitute for its sound.”
“I know I used some hard language in these tweets to describe him but I took a cue of them from our very own dirty mouthed #ArnabGoswamy,” he added.
Furthermore, he even tagged Bollywood celebrities like Aditya Chopra, Karan Johar, Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan to speak up against him.
“My one last word of advise to #AdityaChopra, @karanjohar, @MaheshNBhatt, @iamsrk, @BeingSalmanKhan and many others, is that it’s not enough to create heroes in films and be heroes in films ,but it’s also important to stand up to villains like #ArnabGoswamy”
“The fact that he is making all of us #AdityaChopra , @karanjohar , @MaheshNBhatt, @iamsrk, @BeingSalmanKhan and many many others in the industry look like we are criminals rapists etc it’s better we don’t act like one by hiding and come out to face him like a man,” he added.
As soon as his tweets went viral, there was a mixed reaction on Twitter. Some supported him while some slammed him. Have a look at some of the reactions on how Tweeple slammed RGV for his tweets:
