Ram Gopal Varma is in trouble with a case registered against him for allegedly hurting religious sentiments through a series of controversial tweets on August 29 about Lord Ganesha. The film-maker, apart from questioning the ability of the Lord to remove obstacles from the path of his devotees, made fun of his physical attributes. As his twitter posts triggered an outrage, Varma took to the micro-blogging website to tender an apology.
Rakesh Kumar, the suspended CEO of Central Board of Film Certification
(CBFC) has filed for a bail application. He was arrested by the CBI for allegedly accepting bribes to facilitate the granting of censor certificates to film-makers. In his bail application, Kumar argued that he has been framed by a lobby of agents as he had initiated reforms to curb red tape and increase transparency.
