Many peopled replied to Ram Gopal Varma's clarification and asked him why he is using caste names, if he does not believe in them. Some advised him to change the title of Kamma Rajyam Lo Kadapa Redlu.
@RGVzoomin if u don't believe in caste, why u have named ur movie (#KammaRajyamLoKadapaRedlu) like that? Why ur movie name includes two castes? U have grudge on ncbn, may be u have ur own issues with ncbn, but involving two castes in is very very bad. Don't criticize any cast

Ram Gopal Varma took to Twitter last night and shared a couple of statements in Telugu He alleged that he was getting many threat calls from unidentified people from unexpected foreign destinations like Latvia. His number was shared on whatsapp groups. He dared his detractors and told that he is not afraid of those threat calls. As a director he likes to speak openly and none can stop me from doing it.
