Maverick film director Ram Gopal Varma, who shot his mouth off on the ongoing interrogation of film personalities by the Special Investigation Team of the Telangana excise and enforcement department in connection with their alleged links with drug peddlers, is at it once again.
In a series of messages on his Facebook wall late on Monday night, Varma lashed out at the Telangana government for damaging the reputation of the state and Hyderabad by going too much into the drug scam.
He wondered wheter it was not correct that there was a larger scam from which they were trying to divert media attention towards film people.
“Are there no much bigger people being shielded like many are saying now?” he asked.
He said more than anything else, the drug case is damaging Hyderabad reputation.
“Mumbai people are asking me they never knew Hyderabad is so bad. I hope making a national drama of targeting a few individuals is really worth spoiling reputation of entire Telangana state,” he said.
While Bahubali-2 was highest reputation of Telangana, the drug scam was lowest reputation.
“Sum total feeling I got from Mumbai people is how very much high Rajamouli elevated the Telugu states prestige in entire India with Baahubali Akun Sabarwal and team brought it that much down in the eyes of entire India,” he posted.
He further said: “Mumbai people admired KCR like anything and now they are shocked that what doesn’t happen even in Bollywood and also Mumbai and Punjab schools is happening in TRS government in Hyderabad schools ..I wish as a proud citizen of Hyderabad that responsible people like Akun Sabarwal and Chandravadan will save reputation of KCR and Telangana state in the eyes of rest of india.. I am sincierely hoping their SIT will set the wrong things in the right way.”
“Many saying nothing will come out of this enquiry of film people by Akun Sabarwal’s SIT but whatever might come out as end result, I hope it’s worth giving so much bad name to Telangana state; people in Mumbai are thinking Telangana is worse than Punjab ..sad,” RGV observed.
