Facing backlash for his sexist, Women’s Day tweet, Ram Gopal Varma apologized after a women’s organisation filed a police complaint against him; says “was only expressing my feelings but I apologise to all who were offended”.
The complaint said Varma insulted women with his tweet, “I wish all the women in the world give men as much happiness as Sunny Leone gives.”
The director also got into a war of words with NCP MLA Jitendra Awhad on Twitter.
Awhad asked Varma to apologise or “face the consequences, we don’t mind taking law in hand (sic).” To which, the director replied, “If you don’t apologise to threat of taking law into your own hands, will formally register complaint, so let me know. Please note.”
