On Saturday, the Hyderabad Police questioned filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma about his film, God, Sex & Truth, starring American adult star Mia Malkova. Reports suggested that RGV had denied directing and producing the movie and that it was only the concept to which he’d contributed. This questioning comes soon after RGV was booked by the Central Crime Station (CCS) under Section 67 of the Information Technology Act, 2000 for publishing or transmitting obscene material in electronic form.
Meanwhile, he took to Twitter to rubbish these reports.
For all those false news circulating that I have denied making #GodSexTruth,its only a production and technical process that I was detailing ..How can I deny when I am credited in the film? https://t.co/eJrULnCBUJ
