Ram Gopal Varma Calls Rajinikanth's Fans Dumb!
The filmmaker starts another controversy
Filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma says fans of Rajinikanth will kill him if he tries to make a movie with him, after the director tweeted, “How can somebody with his looks become a superstar”.
His tweets were met with extreme reactions from fans of the superstar who took offence over his views.
"I think some of those Rajini fans are so dumb they didn't even understand I was complementing him. If a very handsome man becomes a big star what's the big deal, it happens all the time. But Rajinikanth looking like that becomes a big star… that is a compliment," Varma was quoted saying.
"God favours him much more than anyone else. That's what I meant. But dumb guys didn't understand," he added.
Varma started the tweets saying, "This man by being the biggest star ever completely destroys the notion of looks being important for stardom... He is a bad looker, doesn't have 6 packs, short with a disproportionate body and knows just second half dance movements."
