The controversial director Ram Gopal Varma once again makes some controversial statements hurting Kannadigas with his remarks. He has slammed the people of Karnataka for making director SS Rajamouli’s magnum opus a big hit at the state box office.
He tweeted, “Thundering success of Telugu Bahubali2 in Karnataka being far bigger than biggest of Kannada films proves kannadigas have no pride at all. Kannadigas attempt to stop dubbing films is shattered by telugu straight film proving kannadigas have no pride n they just want better film. All proud Kannadigas should protest on their own Kannadigas for seeing a telugu straight film many more times than their own Kannada films” (sic).
