After the unfortunate demise of Sushant Singh Rajput, several news channels have also been holding debates on this case. Republic TV editor-in-chief Arnab Goswami has been holding several panel discussions on its prime time, discussing ‘Bollywood lobby’ and Sushant Singh Rajput’s suicide case. On Monday, filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma launched a Twitter thread on the journalist expressed his anger towards Goswami for ‘talking about Bollywood in such a horrible way.’ RGV also announced that he will be making a film on Arnab Goswami, in which he ‘will take the clothes off his facade.’
Reacting to the recent events, Varma took to his twitter handle and wrote, “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?”
Speaking about the news anchor’s comments about the tragic and untimely deaths in Bollywood, he wrote, “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.”
Ram Gopal Varma also said, “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,” the filmmaker added.
Ram Gopal Varma then went on to announce his film based on Arnab Goswami. “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 further spoke about Arnab reacting to his film, “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,” verma added.
Varma also urged filmmaker Aditya Chopra, Karan Johar, Mahesh Bhatt and other Bollywood stars to speak up against Goswami. “If u guys #AdityaChopra , @[email protected] @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,” he added.
