HYDERABAD: Maverick filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma yet again created a Twitter storm when he alleged Pawan Kalyan, Mahesh Babu, and NTR Jr of being jealous of Baahubali. RGV, who’s known to speak his mind, also tore into the fan culture prevalent in the Telugu film industry and urged fans to recognise that the story is always bigger than the stars.
“Neither Mahesh, Kalyan (Pawan), Tarak (NTR Jr), etc nor any top director not acknowledging the internationally acclaimed Baahubali proves their jealousy,” tweeted RGV. “Baahubali should make all dumb fans of top stars realise that a film is bigger than power star, rebel star, super star, etc,” the filmmaker posted.
Even as he received plenty of flak from fans, RGV was relentless in his criticism.
“All fans of Pawan, Mahesh, Tarak, etc should realise realities from Baahubali and leave stupid fangiri and do productive work like farming, cooking,” he added.
