Ram Gopal Varma has earned the wrath of actor Pawan Kalyan's fans after the filmmaker went on to criticise the star's latest Telugu outing "Katamarayudu", while also targeting his personal life and family.
In a series of late-night tweets on Saturday, Varma spewed venom on Pawan Kalyan.
Varma said Pawan Kalyan made profits by selling his film at an exorbitant price to distributors.
"Making film in Rs 30 crore, selling at Rs 100 crore and pocketing Rs 70 crore and enjoying daughters' birthday is no less than Nero playing Fidel when Rome was burning," Varma tweeted.
On the day of release of "Katamarayudu", Pawan Kalyan's daughter Aadhya turned seven. He spent the whole day with her and his ex-wife Renu Desai.
Varma went on to blame the actor's fans for "distracting him from real strength".
He also said that Pawan Kalyan doesn't bear losses of a film unlike superstar Rajinikanth.
"Rajinikanth cares about exhibitors losing and returns money to them because he failed to deliver," he said.
Varma wrote: "A 50+ man (referring to himself) with married daughter watching porn is more powerfully honest than delivering a powerless film and celebrating birthdays of two daughters with two wives."
Varma's tweets resulted in a war of words with staunch fans of Pawan Kalyan.
