Maverick director Ram Gopal Varma has infuriated Karan Johar again by expressing a desire to remake Raavan as My Name Is Raavan. The two filmmakers, who make no secret of their dislike, used twitter to hit back at each other.
“I want to remake Raavan and I want to request Mani to remake Aag,” Varma wrote about Mani Ratnam’s Raavan. “I got a better idea.. I will make My name is Raavan and Mani should make Raavan ki Kurbaan,” said Varma, taking a pot shot at Karan Johar’s recently released films My Name Is Khan and Kurbaan.
Varma also commented on Shah Rukh Khan’s upcoming superhero film Raa.1. “Let’s all hope and pray that Raa.1 does not become SRK ki Baarish,” he added.
To which, Johar tweeted: “@RGVzoomin…you have an amazing sense of humour ramu!! Never shows up in your films though.”
Not the one to be left behind, Varma shot back, “@kjohar25 ha ha karan because of the constant bashing I receive I developed my sense of humour as a defense mechanism (sic).”
