Filmmaker Venkat Prabhu and Dhanush have given a fitting reply to Ram Gopal Varma (RGV) for mocking Tamil superstar Rajinikanth and Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan.
After watching "Te3n," Ram Gopal Varma took to Twitter to talk about Amitabh Bachchan's performance in the movie. In a series of posts, the filmmaker praised Big B, but expressed his disappointment over his choice of roles and subject. He suggested that he should choose heroic roles like Chiranjeevi and Rajinikanth.
On June 14, Ram Gopal Varma tweeted, "After seeing fantastic performance of @SrBachchan in Te3n my only complaint is he shouldn't waste it in non heroic roles like in Rann etc. Evry star in evry language whether Chiranjeevi in telugu or Rajnikant in Tamil understood @SrBachchan and he himself dint understand himself."
"In pursuit of versiatality and expanding the horizons of performances @SrBachchan stepped outside his stardom to advance cinema. My belief as a Rajni fan is If @SrBachchan does Robot it will do far far better and if @superstarrajini does Te3n it will do far far lesser. And even @superstarrajini sir will not dispute my claims about @SrBachchan ..Te3N,Black,Piku etc will be a joke with Rajni in them."
"Bottomline is if @superstarrajini does Te3n it wil b 1 nd if @SrBachchan does Kabali it will be 100..I want @superstarrajini to answer I love @superstarrajini sir for effect and @SrBachchan for content n only Rajni sir will understand becos both me n Rajni sir love B."
However, Ram Gopal Varma's comments did not go well with some celebs from South Indian film industry. Venkat Prabhu tweeted: "@RGVzoomin @superstarrajini @SrBachchan Saar only u can make Sholay flop!! Our superstar will even create history with #TE3N !!! ." Dhanush retweeted Venkat Prabhu's post and wrote: "Nandraaga sonneergal" (Well said).
