Ram Gopal Varma aka RGV finally confirmed that he is not contesting against Jana Sena Party chief Pawan Kalyan from Bhimavaram in Assembly elections, but his announcement was an advance April fool joke.

Ram Gopal Varma announced that he would  is set to release his next movie Lakshmi's NTR in the cinema halls on March 29 and is currently busy with its promotion. The controversial filmmaker surprised everyone when he tweeted on Thursday morning, "‏I am contesting against @PawanKalyan in Bhimavaram.. Await DETAILS."

In reply, many of his followers countered Ram Gopal Varma saying that the date of filing nomination is over and he must be drinking Vodka (which he is known for) while making the post on Twitter. They mocked him by asking him to finish the remaining vodka and go to bed. Some even opined that it must be a publicity stunt for his upcoming movie Lakshmi's NTR, a controversial biopic of NT Rama Rao.
