Ram Gopal Varma (RGV) has always been in news for his OOBs (out-of-Box) remarks even in past. The director, in his latest tweets, has taken a dig at Megastar Shah Rukh Khan (SRK). RGV went off on a rant saying that Shah Rukh Khan might lose his stardom to Salman Khan as Kamal Haasan did to Rajinikanth. He says SRK becoming ordinary fan; dwarf etc. is as big a same blunder as what once the South Superstar Kamal Hasan did to lose his stardom to Rajnikant.
RGV tweets, “Megastar SRK becoming ordinary fan,dwarf etc is as big a same blunder as what Kamal Hasan did to lose his stardom to Rajnikant (Salman Khan)”.
Furthermore, the director also questioned the SRK's choice of selecting films. Shah Rukh has played the character of a diehard fan in his latest outing, but Varma feels that playing a fan or dwarf on the big screen isn't wise. He also pointed those mistakes of Kamal Haasan, who had allegedly lost his popularity to Rajinikanth, after he started doing off-beat films.
Interestingly, Rajinikanth is phenomenon in South India but often he has affectionately claimed that he learned acting by watching Kamal Haasan movies.
RGV is known for controversial tweets and squabbling with people on social media such as Twitter. Earlier this month, Ram Gopal Varma had become the target of Rajini fan, after he trolled the Lingaa actor om Twitter. In July last year, Days after the Godavari Pushkaram stampede which claimed 27 lives, film director and producer Ram Gopal Varma tweeted, “Why didn’t God stop those poor devotees from being killed in pushkaras..is it becos they prayed lesser than other devotees who stayed alive?”. There was also a public outrage, when he visited Taj Hotel in the aftermath of 26/11 terrorist incident.
