It seems like filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma is done with twisted and hyped news presentation and also with the journalists who blow it out of proportion. Denouncing this trend of news channels, particularly, shouting out news anchor and editor-in-chief of Republic TV Arnab Goswami, filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma took to his Twitter account to express his anger towards Arnab and to explain why he is making a movie on him.
The filmmaker, in a series of tweets, announced that he is so done with the news anchor, Arnab Goswami that he will now make a film titled ‘Arnab -The News Prostitute’.
The high profile case of Bollywood celebrity Sushant Singh Rajput’s alleged suicide has created a lot of buzz and all the media channels are conducting debate around the functioning of Bollywood. Opening up on recent events, Varma tweeted, “Was shocked to see #ArnabGoswami talking about Bollywood in such a horrible way ..He calls it the dirtiest industry ever with criminal connections ,it’s full of Rapists, gangsters, sexual exploiters and what not?It beats me in what dumb way #ArnabGoswami can combine the deaths of Divya Bharthi,Jiah khan, Sridevi and Sushant into one case and claim that the murderer is Bollywood..incidentally the 4 deaths happened over a span of nearly 25 years.”
“And in all the four cases of Divya, Jiah, Sridevi and Sushant there were completely different people and circumstances ..But in Arnab’s mind they are all one and had been killed by an entity called Bollywood,” filmmaker added.
Ram Gopal Varma further wrote, “That guy #ArnabGoswami is banking on the fact that we don’t have the spine and as long as he runs the debate he will anyway make sure no one’s point of view is ever heard and that’s his modus operandi anyway.”
“I for one am feeling very strongly about this and I decided to make a film on #ArnabGoswami in which I will take the clothes off his facade and make him naked exposing the lengths and breadths of all his vital corrupt stats,” added the director.
Announcing about his film based on Arnab Goswami, Ram Gopal Verma said, “ARNAB”THE NEWS PROSTITUTE. After extensively studying him I mulled on whether the tagline should be The News Pimp or The News Prostitute though both are relevant I finally settled on prostitute for its sound. I know I used some hard language in these tweets to describe him but I took a cue of them from our very own dirty mouthed #ArnabGoswamy.”
He even said that Arnab’s views on his film aren’t welcomed, “Hey #ArnabGoswami whether u react to my film or not I don’t care a damn because my target audience is not going to be u , but it will be ur viewers ..I want to shake them up with the way I will expose in my film the back of ur public face in Republic TV.”
“On the other hand if u #ArnabGoswami react to my film or try to discredit me I would welcome that too because I can use it for the publicity of my film,” he added.
Ram Gopal Varma also urged Bollywood biggies like Aditya Chopra, Karan Johar, Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan to speak up against the news Anchor, Arnab. “If u guys #AdityaChopra , @karanjohar@MaheshNBhatt @iamsrk @BeingSalmanKhan are so scared that if u speak against him ,it might go against the current public sentiment don’t forget that it’s him, who aroused that sentiment and ur silence is making u all look guilty for sure.”
“Atleast now all film industry people should come out and speak openly about #ArnabGoswami ‘s falsifications instead of running scared like deer from a wild dog,” the filmmaker added.
On June 14, the 34-years-old actor, Sushant Singh Rajput was found hanging from the ceiling of Bandra resident.
