Ram Gopal Varma Questions Mahesh Babu’s Loyalty In Twitter Feud


Filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma (RGV) has lashed out at Telugu actor Mahesh Babu for showing his support for Tamil Nadu’s prevailing jallikattu protests while his home state Andhra Pradesh faces its own agitations. Questioning the actor’s loyalty to his own state, RGV berates the actor for not fighting for Andhra Pradesh in a series of tweets. 


Mahesh Babu had expressed his admiration for the people of Tamil Nadu for coming together and protesting against the ban of the traditional sport of bull taming – Jallikattu – in the state.

“Proud to see such a statement of unity among Tamilians for something that they truly believe in. Especially admire the way the students of Tamil Nadu have been standing up for the cause, relentlessly fighting for their roots and culture. Hope their voices are heard. I support the spirit of Tamil Nadu. #JusticeforJallikattu,” the actor tweeted last week.

However, Andhra Pradesh has been going through its own series of unrest with the people demanding special status category for the state. The police have since arrested protesters in various parts of Andhra Pradesh since January 26.

Actor Pawan Kalyan, who has been at the forefront of the protests, has even released a protest album titled Desh Bachao in an effort to eliminate communal politics in the state. 


RGV has since lauded Kalyan’s efforts, dubbing him as the only person who will “stop it (protests) from being a disaster”.
