RGV explains why he called Amitabh a ch****ya

During the release of Buddha Hoga Tera Baap four years ago, eccentric filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma stirred up a major controversy when he tweeted calling the country’s biggest star, Amitabh Bachchan, a ‘ch****ya’. RGV’s shockingly blasphemous tweet got him severe flak from all quarters.

Now, after such a long time, RGV clarified why he addressed Amitabh in such an audacious tone in his recent interview to The Quint. RGV said his tweet was a “compliment to Bachchan expressed in a hard-hitting manner and the important thing is that he (Amitabh) understood it.”

RGV went on to state that anyone can call him names and that they do it very often.
