Pratiksha Kargaonkar, belonging to Women’s branch of Hindu group Hindu Janajagruti, filed a complaint against him in Goa. The complaint states that insulting a woman’s prestige is a cognizable offence under the Indecent Representation of Women Act, hence an offence should be registered against the director under Cyber Law for victimisation of Women. The filmmaker retaliated on social media and said, “Filing counter against OverActivist wid 212 followers which wud b her family n friends, for disrespecting 18 lakh followers of @SunnyLeone.” He added in another tweet, “Only God nd Social media numbers r true judges nd who disagree shud check no, of @SunnyLeone followers with their own numbers b4 they tweet.” Pratiksha has also demanded that Varma’s Twitter account be permanently blocked.

Here are RGV’s tweets on the FIR…

In earlier tweets, RGV gave a piece of his mind to his critics. “The negative noise towards my tweet on @SunnyLeone arises from ultimate hypocrisy.She has more honesty and more self respect than any woman,” he wrote.

The director added, “@SunnyLeone doesn’t have millions following bcos of her body as 1000’s of women hv great bodies ..Her greatness is in standing by her pride.” He even declared that he would make a short film on the adult star-turned-actor.

“Soon making short film on exposing sanctimoniousness of extremely antithetical multifarious perspectives on the phenomenon of @SunnyLeone. My short film on her phenomenon will bare the veiled centrally decomposed cogitations in all the mentally corroded naysayers of @SunnyLeone,” Varma posted.
