Bad looker, short, no six- pack: RGV ‘compliments’ Rajinikanth
lmmaker Ram Gopal Varma has always believed more in making controversial comments than in making films. Plus, he has a point of view on anything and everything. Like the one he had when he saw this selfie Amy Jackson had posted with Rajinikanth. Amy, of course, was only too happy and said so in her tweet. But RGV decided to use this picture to decode the phenomenon called Rajinikanth.
What followed was a series of tweets, starting with, “This man by being the biggest star ever completely destroys the notion of looks being important for stardom.” This comment got him lots of likes and retweets, and so, he was on a roll… He clarified and wondered what Rajini “did to God that God did this to him”. He even challenged the psychiatrists of the world to decipher what he termed the “Rajni Phenomenon”.
Rajini’s fans quickly caught on to what was happening, and began to troll RGV, who quickly commented, “Some superdumb fans of Rajnikant dint even realise that I was only complimenting the superstar…” And qualified this comment with, “Dumb fans of Rajni who dint realise my tweets r compliment shud realise Rajni himself makes fun of himself”.
Well, that’s compliments RGV style! Rajini sir, remember the scene where Amitabh ‘praises’ Dharmendra in Sholay?
