Ram Gopal Varma’s offensive tweets on Ganesh Chaturthi irks Kunal Kohli!

The ace filmmaker went bonkers on Twitter, constantly putting up blasphemous tweets on Lord Ganesha and Ganesh Chaturthi festival

Ram Gopal Varma has always been in the eye of the storm thanks to his bindaas attitude and his extemely blunt and offensive tweets in the past. If you jog your memory a little, the director took a nasty dig on Rajinikanth’s looks in Kochadaiiyaan few months back. Now the Satya filmmaker is back in the centre of a controversy with his tweets on Ganpati and the Ganesh festival, which many consider to be extremely offensive and even blasphemous.

The following are the tweets of Ram Gopal Varma and here is what the Ramu had to say about  Ganesh Chaturthi :

The guy who couldn’t save his own head from being cut , how he will save others heads is my question? But Happy Ganpathi day to morons!”  Can someone tell me if today is the day Ganesha was originally born or is it the day his dad cut his head off? I would really love to know from Lord Ganesha’s devotees a list of what obstacles he removed in all the years they prayed to him. Does Lord Ganesha eat much more than other Gods? My doubt is becos all the other Gods are either trim or muscular. Did Lord Ganesha have a paunch in his childhood too or did it develop in the recovery time of the elephant head operation? 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 pls undrstand tht my questions nd observations on Ganesha are coming from both my innocence nd ignorance on the subject matter.I think my films are flopping only becos of my attitude towards Gods. ..I wish I can become a devotee

Ramu’s tweets have left many fans fuming and an enraged Kunal Kohli tweeted,” Greatest thing about being Indian is we partake in each others festivals not ridicule them like you.Shame on you #RamGopalVerma”. Wethinks that it is just an attention seeking exercise from RGV, who is desperately trying to be in the limelight by making offensive remarks. Perhaps, the director is not in his right frame of mind as both his films and tweets are turning torturous with every passing day!

    I think this guy must have slipped and fell and seriously hurt his head a decade or so earlier. That would explain his movies, his current statement and him. PERIOD. Stop giving him press coverage so he becomes irrelevant as he should have long time back.

    When I was reading RGV’s view I find bit offensive and a thought came in mind Lord Ganesh will not forgive RGV now…By the time I finish reading whole thing I feel like it’s his point of view…and if think deeply it’s not wrong…I feel like it’s a bitter truth…does lord Ganesh really exist, and if he really does he look the same people describe about him and his story…did his father really cut his head??? If not how and why this story came from??? If this whole story is true, is lord Ganesh gonna be upset about what RGV thinks??? So why we are fumming and throwing anger to RGV…everyone has right to express their views…if u dun like just unfollow him and go ur way :)

    I support these questions simply. Remember it’s mythology (A myth by definition is not fact). L Ganesha was originally a statue created by Parvati. Then she put life into it. (Modern theory would suggest she created a robot and he would guard her). Rest research and make up your mind. By the way Ganesh char tutti festival put in by a freedom fighter Shri tilak. Hence the conclusion the festival is not part of Vedas or any other mythological story.

    even though u might not have the same views on a religion like others no one has the right to disrespect someone’s faith like he has done. everyone has their own viewpoint but here he is clearly making fun of the devotees and the faith that people have. This is so disrespectful and not even an apology would make up for what he has done. He certainly does not have the right to question someone’s faith like this!
