Maverick film director Ram Gopal Varma, known for his controversial and stinging comments at others, has stirred the political circles with his pot shots at Telugu Desam Party MPs for enacting a high drama in Parliament over the raw deal meted out to Andhra Pradesh in union budget.
Varma particularly targeted TDP MP from Chittoor Dr N Siva Prasad, who tried to catch the attention of the national media and other party MPs by sporting different make-up like Narada, snake charmer and Potharaju etc in the Parliament premises.
Another TDP MP K Rammohan Naidu was playing the dholak along with Siva Prasad. Perhaps, their theatrics seem to have irritated Varma.
“No wonder @narendramodi thinks Andhra Pradesh is a joke if jokers like this are elected as representatives of the great A P people. I think they are far lesser than jokers and much more than c____’s,” he said in his social media posting.
“These guys of TDP are a national embarrassment to the international reputation of TDP,” he said in another posting, while sharing the pictures of the protesting TDP MPs.
Varma has forgotten that Siva Prasad is basically a comic character and has done comedian roles in quite a few films. So, calling him joker is no big effect on him.
“I don’t take RGV comments seriously. I am glad the people have taken us seriously and acknowledged our fight with the Centre to do justice to the state,” Sivaprasad said.
