Filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma, who often hogs headlines for his controversial statements, has landed himself in trouble yet again. Recently, the Bollywood director made a derogatory remark about the BJP-led NDA’s presidential candidate Droupadi Murmu.

The first tribal and first from Odisha, Droupadi Murmu, will contest the Presidential Elections this year.

On June 22, Ram Gopal Varma tweeted, ‘If Droupadi is the President who are the Pandavas? And more importantly, who are the Kauravas?’

Have a look at Ram Gopal Varma’s tweet:

The tweet triggered a massive social media outrage following which a Lucknow-based social worker filed an FIR against the filmmaker at Hazratganj police station. Another case was filed against him in Telangana.

The social worker, Manoj Singh, in his complaint said the tweet is a deliberate attempt to vitiate the atmosphere that may lead to untoward incidents. The complaint also said the tweet hurts religious sentiments as it talks about a character of mythology Mahabharata in a bad light and humiliated women.

Following the FIRs, Ram Gopal Varma clarified that his tweet was an earnest irony and not intended in any other way. He also said Draupadi in Mahabharata is his favourite character, but since the name is such a rarity, he just remembered the associated characters and hence his expression which was not at all intended to hurt the sentiments of anyone.

The filmmaker also applauded Draupadi Murmu and said he has no doubt that she will be the greatest president ever in the whole wide world.

Have a look at Ram Gopal Varma’s tweet:

Meanwhile, soon after Droupdi Murmu was announced as the presidential candidate, the Odisha government Sunday led electrification work in the ancestral village of the NDA presidential candidate in Marurbhanj district.

Johar also revealed that he felt awkward when Katrina Kaif and Vicky Kaushal were getting married. However, he got a sense of peace when people told him that even Anurag Kashyap was not invited to their wedding.

Much like Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt’s wedding this year, which had Karan Johar on the guest list but very few other Bollywood superstars, the couple only invited very close ones to their wedding.

Kerala film producers' outfit imposes temporary ban on actor Sreenath Bhasi for abusing anchor

Kerala Film Producers’ Association (KFPA) on Tuesday imposed a temporary ban on the Malayalam actor Sreenath Bhasi for allegedly misbehaving with the female anchor during an interview.

Reportedly, the 34-year-old actor was giving an interview for a YouTube channel for his upcoming film, Chattambi. During the interview, the actor got furious at a question asked by the anchor, and he started abusing her and the crew members.

Following this, the anchor lodged a complaint with the KFPA. Based on the complaint, Maradu Police arrested the Bheeshma Parvam actor.

The actor was produced before the KFPA on Tuesday. He was released on bail, but he has been temporarily banned from working in films. However, the actor was permitted to complete the shooting of his ongoing films or other projects.

M Ranjith, a president of KFPA told that Bhasi had accepted his mistake and that’s why they are limiting the disciplinary action to a temporary ban.

Another complaint has been filed with KFPA alleging that the actor broke the terms of their contract by taking home an additional fee for the film. Renjith said Bhasi had agreed to reimburse the additional fee.

Sreenath Bhasi is an Indian actor and singer who works predominately in Malayalam films. He started his career as a Radio Jockey on Red FM 93.5. He gained recognition in the film Da Thadiya. He was a part of the Christian alternative metal band named Crimson Wood and is currently the vocalist of an experimental djent band from Kerala.

Sreenath Bhasi will be next seen in Abhilash S Kumar’s Chattambi, also starring Mythili, Chemban Vinod Jose, Guru Somasundaram, Grace Antony, and Binu Pappu. He has several other projects in his kitty, which include Idi Mazha Kaatu, Unlock, Khajuraho Dreams among others.

Malayalam actor Sreenath Bhasi gets arrested for abusing anchor during interview

Sreenath Bhasi

Malayalam actor Sreenath Bhasi was booked by Maradu police for allegedly abusing the anchor during an interview.

Reports said the case against Bhasi was filed last week after a journalist complained that the actor used foul language against her and other crew members.

The arrest was made under sections 354 A (1) (IV), 509 and 294 B of the Indian Penal Code (IPC). Section 354 A (1) (IV) of IPC deals with the offence of making sexually coloured remarks. Section 509 deals with word, gesture or act intended to insult the modesty of a woman, while section 294 B deals with uttering any obscene song, ballad or words, in or near any public place.

The incident happened during the actor’s film Chattambi’s promotions when the anchor asked him to rate his co-stars on the basis of their rowdiness. Bhasi refused to answer the question following which the anchor asks him to leave on camera. After Bhasi called it a ‘silly’ question, the anchor asked the crew to stop filming.

Reports said Bhasi verbally abused the crew once the camera was turned off. Following the incident, the entertainment portal posted a video on their channel and alleged that Bhasi threw sexist abuses on two women anchors.

The crew member of the YouTube channel said the channel deviates from the usual hard news and instead focuses on funny questions to spread the word about the film as they are an online channel. The crew member also informed that the makers prefer funny questions when they approach the channel for film promotions.

Further, the crew member said Bhasi did not find any questions befitting his status and it is goodwill and entertainment value that fuels an upcoming actor’s success.

His behaviour was not befitting of a lead actor, especially one who comes to promote his film, the crew member concluded.

Sreenath Bhasi was arrested on Monday after being summoned by the police for inquiry. The police have asked him to submit a video clip of the interview to check what pushed him to abuse the anchors and the crew members, the reports said.
