When filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma made a sexist comment on Sunny Leone on International Women’s Day, a whole lot of buzz was created everywhere. Actress Sonam Kapoor also responded and said that she doesn’t want to comment on RGV and had “better things to do”.
Now, the “Sarkar 3” director took at dog at the diva and said that she was a superstar of "Neerja" and he is a flop director of "Ram Gopal Varma Ki Aag".
Varma's tweet came after actor Kamaal R. Khan drew his attention to Sonam's comment.
"Sarkar RGV, Sonam Kapoor is saying on NDTV that nobody should take you seriously because you are nobody. Lol," Khan wrote.
To that, Varma tweeted: "She's 100 per cent right because she's superstar of 'Neerja' and am super flop of 'Aag'."
