Bollywood director Ram Gopal who recently launched the trailer of his upcoming film Sarkar 3 has stirred another controversy with his sexist tweet about Bollywood actress Sunny Leone. RGV took to twitter on International Women’s Day and posted, “I wish all the women in the world give men as much happiness as Sunny Leone gives.” This obviously did not go well with the Twitter who bashed the filmmaker. Reacting to the incident, Pratiksha Kargaonkar, belonging to Women’s branch of Hindu group Hindu Janajagruti, filed a complaint against him in Goa.

Here are some of Ram Gopal Varma’s tweets:

The complaint was filed stating that RGV’s tweet insulted a woman’s prestige which is recognised as an offence under the Indecent Representation of Women Act. However, Ram Gopal Varma hit back at the FIR with multiple tweets mocking Pratiksha Kargaonkar by saying that he is filing a counter FIR against her. His tweet read as, “Filing counter against OverActivist wid 212 followers which wud b her family n friends, for disrespecting 18 lakh followers of @SunnyLeone.”

Pratiksha even demanded that Varma’s Twitter account be permanently blocked but he continued to post on social media hitting out at his critics. “Only God nd Social media numbers r true judges nd who disagree shud check no, of @SunnyLeone followers with their own numbers b4 they tweet,” said another tweet by Ram Gopal Varma. “@SunnyLeone doesn’t have millions following bcos of her body as 1000’s of women hv great bodies ..Her greatness is in standing by her pride,” he added by saying that he’ll make a short-film on Sunny.

He took his argument to another level by asking, “Like there is a Womens Day is there a Womens Night also???” The 54-year-old director added, “My mom, sister, daughter and my grandmother mainly respect me for my honesty in openly expressing my respect towards @SunnyLeone ‘s honesty.” He also got into an online feud with the National Congress Party leader Dr.Jitendra Awhad by saying, “Right or wrong @Awhadspeaks expresses his feels but when others do he will take law into his hands WAHH! God save this country’s democracy.”

Another NCP leader Vidya Chavan replied to his comment by saying, “He should apologise for his remark, if he doesn’t we will try to beat him with shoes.” In the latest developments, Film Studio Setting & Allied Mazdoor Union with 52,000 members decided to boycott Ram Gopal Varma for his controversial tweet.

In the meantime, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has said that  they would black list Ram Gopal Varma for his latest comments.
