Rangeela director Ram Gopal Varma often makes headlines for his antics on Twitter. Whether it’s his outrageous tweets or his inappropriate take on most things, he often receives criticism for his social media activities.
RGV found himself in a soup again after a sultry video of him dancing with Inaya Sultana to the song Rangeela went viral.
However, as always, he joked on Twitter that he wasn’t the one in the video.
I want to make it clear again that the guy in this video is not me and the girl in red is not @inaya_sultana and I swear on US President JOE BIDEN pic.twitter.com/K8nNera7Rc

He wrote: “I want to make it clear once again that the guy in this video is not me, and the girl in red is not Inaya Sultana, and I swear on US President JOE BIDEN (sic) .”
The damage was already done by then. From #BoycottBollywood to pointing out how women have to go through “those” types of casting episodes to get a role, fans have started to get outraged.
How can you tolerate it (uncle)…?? He puts his leg on the table right next to your cake.
Is an offer for a movie or something so important that you understand with your soul. It’s sad that sweet innocent girls do this for anything.

I appreciate that you only tolerate arrogance @RGVzoomin for career break.
I hope the next anniversary on the words that you do not have to drop to your knees for a career break. Belated birthday wishes 🎂

He is called out for forcing himself on Sultana and “groping” her.
Sultana had taken to Twitter to share a photo with RGV and others from her birthday party.
These are the best and amazing moments of my life, love forever 💓 it’s my birthday 🎉 pic.twitter.com/lTDowAvixX

She captioned the photo as follows: “This is the best and most amazing moment of my life, love forever.”
