Boney Kapoor lashes out at ‘Crazy’ Ram Gopal Varma

Producer Boney Kapoor tagged director Ram Gopal Varma “crazy”, “bonkers” and a “pervert” after the latter openly expressed his admiration for his actress wife Sridevi in his newly launched autobiography “Gun & Thighs”. RGV, who is known to make bizarre statements in the past too openly, praised Sridevi’s “thundering thighs” which irked Boney Kapoor.

At the book launch, Ram Gopal Varma revealed his love for the veteran actress Sridevi and expressed his disappointment to see Sridevi sacrificing her career for Boney Kapoor.

"It was a love letter. I was going overboard, but that was my feeling. Everyone can have a crush on anyone, be it on a real person or a celebrity, you enjoy that feeling of high. It is almost like a drug. To see Sridevi making tea in Boney Kapoor's kitchen was a huge letdown. I won't forgive him because he brought the angel down from heaven to the kitchen of his apartment," he said while confessing his love for the actress during a session at a literature festival in New Delhi.

The very comment has not gone well with the Kapoor, who categorically called the filmmaker “crazy, bonkers and a man with a perverted mindset”.

RGV in turn asked the producer to read the chapter before commenting on him.

“My advise to Boney is to read my full article in ‘Guns and Thighs’ on Sridevi-ji before spewing venom on me,” he wrote on Twitter, adding that he respects the “English Vinglish” actress as a fan.

“I as a fan have more respect for Srideviji than what Boney has for her as a wife… Only Srideviji will know the truth of this in her heart.”

Varma further said that the actress’s popularity is not only because of her acting talent but also because of her “thundering thighs”.

“Srideviji’s fame is not only because of her acting capacity but it’s also because of her thundering thighs — top critics of ‘Himmatwala time’… If only acting talent is a measure for stardom, why wasn’t Smita Patil bigger than Sridevi-ji… The thunder thighs made the difference,” he wrote.

“I respect Srideviji for her thighs, her smile, her acting talent, her sensitivity, her persona and above all I respect her love for Boney,” he added.
