It seems there is a connection between controversies and Ram Gopal Varma. Recently the filmmaker is making headlines for making a April Fool joke about the ongoing pandemic and getting slammed for it.
On Wednesday the filmmaker tweeted , “My doctor just told me that I tested positive with Corona.” However later he claimed that it was an “April Fool joke”. Though he put an apology on social media, people started criticising him for being insensitive.
Varma wrote,“The only way to remain sane in such a [grim] situation is to joke about it, else we will get into depression. I knew I would get trolled for it. I believe a complaint has been filed against me for spreading false information. But it was meant as an April Fool joke, nothing else,”
“I [put out the tweet] because I was getting bored,” says the director, from his Hyderabad office.
