RGV tweeted, "As a fan, I am shocked and feel sad for @Pawankalyan that he has only 11 k fans.. That's because @Iamnagarjuna's #Officer teaser 2 has only 11 k dislikes . @iamnagarjuna 's #Officer 's warning to @PawanKalyan 's fans is to put more dislikes on #Officer .. As fans of Pk we request @janasenaparty to take this seriously as it might make the voters feel in nearly 11 crore people he has only 11 thousand fans."

Ram Gopal Varma continued, "If @PawanKalyan has only 11 thousand followers in a population of nearly 11 crores, #JanasenaParty should take serious steps for their party not to become a bigger disaster then #Prajarajyam ..I and @iamnagarjuna 's #Officer demand that as fans of PK."

A fan of Pawan Kalyan replied to Ram Gopal Varma, saying that he disliked the teaser of Officer, without watching it for second. Responding to him, the director tweeted, "If this is the IQ level of @PawanKalyan 's fans @JanaSenaParty should take a serious cognisance of not becoming a #Prajarajyam2."

Ram Gopal Varma added, "A @PawanKalyan fan not having the intelligence to say he disliked #Officer teaser and admitting he clicked a dislike without even watching,should be a concern for @JanaSenaParty about the overall IQ level of their fan base.
