With his latest tweets, Ram Gopal Varma has proclaimed himself as the controversy king of the Telugu industry. It looks like the well-known filmmaker has been completely bowled over by Jr NTR's performance in his upcoming movie, "Temper".

The director's latest tweets, after watching "Temper", compared Junior NTR with Senior NTR and have triggered some major discussion in the industry.

He went on to say that Sr NTR is nothing in front of his grandson and that he himself should come back and learn a lot from Jr NTR. He added that if the latter was born before his grandfather, he would have become a far bigger star.

Previously, Ram Gopal Varma had made some controversial statements through the social networking site, which too had made headlines.

Earlier, he made statements on how director Shankar is bigger than Rajinikanth and Jayalalitha. He had also talked about how the biggest directors in Bollywood depends on Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan and Aamir Khan and how Shankar surpassed them all with the release of "I"

His recent comparison of "Temper" with Mahesh Babu's movies like "Pokiri" and "Businessman" also did not go well with Mahesh Babu fans as he called the latter's movies as flops.

Meanwhile, Jr NTR is getting ready for the release of his movie "Temper" on 13 February. The film, which also stars Kajal Aggarwal in the lead, is written and directed by Puri Jagganadh and is produced by Parameshwara Art Pictures.
