On a day when the entire world was busy celebrating the International Women’s Day, filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma was busy sending out demeaning tweets about women and Sunny Leone. In a word he was being his usual misogynistic and sexist self on Twitter. He was busy questioning the essence of observing a day for women and even went as far as saying that on this day the women should not nag or scream at men and should give them some freedom. His crass remarks were not in good humour and soon people found objections to it. He even went as far as tweeting, “I wish all the women in the world give men as much happiness as Sunny Leone gives.” His tweets obviously could not help but send repercussions in the Twitterati. RGV soon found himself in legal trouble when activist Vishaka Mhambre filed a complaint against him in Goa. He also responded to the tweet saying, “Filing counter against OverActivist wid 212 followers which wud b her family n friends, for disrespecting 18 lakh followers of @SunnyLeone”.

Ram Gopal Varma called everyone a hypocrite and tweeted, “The negative noise towards my tweet on @SunnyLeone arises from ultimate hypocrisy. She has more honesty and more self respect than any woman.” But the deed was done; he is in a legal soup as of now and will have to justify matters in court. However, RGV doesn’t like taking things submissively so he went on a rant and threatened to file a counter against the activist Vishakha Mhambre. He called her an overactivist. He also went ahead and was engaged in a war of words with Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) MLA Dr. Jitendra Awhad who asked Ram Gopal Varma to apologize for his sexist and misogynistic tweets. RGV even embroiled Sharad Pawar in his Twitter battle. Ram Gopal Varma’s tweet on International Women’s Day 2017 insults Sunny Leone and all women!
