Ram Gopal Varma Summoned By Bombay High Court Over 2014 Ganesha Tweets

Ram Gopal Varma has been summoned by the Bombay High Court in connection with a case filed in 2014 by social activist Vivek Shetty for poking fun at the Hindu deity Ganesha through a series of tweets. Varma has now been asked to appear before the bench for a hearing.

Shetty said in a statement, “I am delighted by the summons issued by the honourable court. I will pursue this case to its logical conclusion and further I hope, this will go a long way in maintaining peace and harmony in society at large.”


Varma has  long been a controversial figure on and off social media. His often objectionable and vulgar opinions have targeted everybody from actor Rajinikanth to tennis player Sania Mirza. Following the continuous opposition to his activities, Varma said that he was de-activating his social media accounts earlier this year.
