Ram Gopal Varma urges Modi to have a shave
In his tweet, Ram Gopal Varma claimed that he is embarrassed to have a prime minister like Modi, and he urged the PM to at least have a shave.
"He literally looks like a Himalayan baba moving around in mountains and because of that, it's no wonder he has no clue about what's happening in the real world with oxygen and beds. I am honestly embarrassed to have a PM who looks like this. So sir at least have a shave," tweeted Varma.

Netizens reaction to RGV's comments
The tweet made by Ram Gopal Varma is now receiving mixed responses from all corners. A section of netizens has now started lauding Ram Gopal Varma for his strong criticism against the Narendra Modi government. However, a majority of people claimed that RGV's criticism was not fair, and making derogatory comments on a person's look is not acceptable.
"That's a completely pathetic statement from RGV. Such a low-class thinking mentality! He has no right to bark about someone's appearance. Going by his logic, people who don't grow beards are greater than those who had. Better grow up Man," commented Gokul Sreekumar, a Facebook user.
Some other netizens urged Ram Gopal Varma to concentrate only on filmmaking and requested him to stop talking about things like coronavirus pandemic that he is not aware of.
