Ram Gopal Varma takes dig at National Film Awards, he used the example of Aamir Khan

Indian filmmaker Ram Gopal Verma is known for his fierce tweets on the social media. He never really filters his thoughts while he is posting.

This time the filmmaker made snide remarks at National Film Awards, saying superstar Aamir Khans decision to skip all award events points out at the losing relevance of the system in India.

The director, who often gets embroiled in controversies due to his remarks, tweeted on Sunday that Aamir “doesn’t care to be measured by any Indian award committee including National (Film Awards)”. He posted, “Fact that Aamir khan, the greatest filmmaker of India does not attend any award events including National Award speaks about those events.”

He even added that: “Highest quality films are made by Aamir and that he doesn’t care to be measured by any Indian award committee including national speaks loud.”

2017 has been a year of controversies for Ram Gopal Varma. After RGV attacked Telugu superstar Pawan Kalyan on Twitter, his tweet about Sunny Leone on Women’s Day got him into trouble and just recently, Ramu called Tiger Shroff a ‘transgender’ and that opened a whole new can of worms.

As for the National Film Awards, this year’s Best Actor selection, Akshay Kumar, has been considered not fit for the award in various circles.

At the 64th National Film Awards announcement earlier this month, the Best Actor honour went to Akshay Kumar for Hindi movie ‘Rustom’, leaving much of Bollywood wondering why movies like ‘Dangal’ and ‘Aligarh’ were left out.

It is being speculated that Aamir’s work in ‘Dangal’ was not taken into consideration because he doesn’t attend any award functions.

This surely makes it clear that RGV is not at all supporting the decision of Akshay Kumar winning the award amidst the likes of Aamir Khan.
