VISHAKAPATNAM — Women’s associations, led by All India Democratic Women Association (AIDWA), on Saturday protested in Visakhapatam against filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma over his new film ‘God, Sex and Truth’.
Women shouted slogans against Varma, and burned his effigy at the GVMC Gandhi statue in the coastal city, ANI reported.
Varma has shared the trailer of his upcoming adult film with porn star Mia Malkova called ‘God, Sex and Truth’.
The protesters also accused the director of using abusive words against women in one of his recent interviews with a Telugu TV news channel.
Mahila Morcha, the women’s wing of the BJP has also demanded a ban on the film, as state executive member, K Nagalakshmi, filed a complaint in Vijayawada with the Suryaraopet police.
The Mahila Morcha leader demanded to know, “What was the message Varma would be giving to the youth in India with his dirty film.”
The protesters demanded that police should arrest him and ban the film’s release and its trailers on social media.
The film has been in the news ever since RGV shared some posters of the same on social media featuring the lead actress and pornstar Mia Malkova.
The film was shot in Europe and its trailer was launched last week. The full film will be launched on Republic Day, January 26.Follow @gorkhapost
