Two BJP leaders on Friday approached Abid Road Police Station seeking action against director Ram Gopal Varma, accusing him of posting objectionable remarks against NDA presidential candidate Droupadi Murmu.


“If DRAUPADI is the PRESIDENT who are the PANDAVAS? And more importantly, who are the KAURAVAS?” Varma had tweeted.

Abid’s inspector B Prasad Rao speaking to the media said that they have sought legal opinion on the complaint by BJP leaders Guduru Narayan Reddy and Nandeshwar Goud.

“This tweet is tantamount to disrespecting the SC and ST people. Here, he calls ‘Draupadi’ the President. We would have had no objections if he had only mentioned Draupadi, Pandavas, and Kauravas. We, the BJP workers, are hurt at such comments by RGV,” Reddy said.


“Here, in this case, the police have promised us that they will take stern action against RGV, and after which, I don’t think he will again tweet or make such a nasty statement against anyone,” he adds.

The clarification

Ram Gopal Varma however clarified his intention with regard to the tweet, claiming that it was made in ‘earnest irony’ and not intended to ‘hurt sentiments of anyone.

“This was said just in an earnest irony and not intended in any other way ..Draupadi in Mahabharata is my favorite character but Since the name is such a rarity I just remembered the associated characters and hence my expression. Not at all intended to hurt sentiments of anyone,” he wrote.
