Director Ram Gopal Varma is well known for the controversies about his films and yet again he chooses a very controversial topic for his new project which is a web film, titled as “God, Sex and Truth” with porn star Mia Malkova releasing on 26th of Jan. A day before the release of his new web film, Hyderabad police booked filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma for obscenity on a complaint by a social activist.
As per reports by a leading daily, a case has been filed against the director under section 67 of the Information Technology Act, 2000 for showing obscene scenes in the electronic form. The complaint has been filed by activist Devi and others. Considering the complaint, Central Crime Station (CCS) registered a case against the filmmaker. It’s not just section 67, RGV was also booked under sections 506 and 509 of Indian Penal Code for making personal comments against the women who were opposing the movie and was charged for insulting the modesty of woman. However, Police said that they would take legal opinion and conduct proper investigations before taking further action against the filmmaker.
As per reports, women groups have started protesting against the director in Hyderabad and Visakhapatnam, demanding a ban on the release of this movie on web and his immediate arrest. The activists of All India Democratic Women’s Association (AIDWA), AP Mahila Samakhya and other groups raised slogans against Varma. They say that the filmmaker is portraying woman as a sex object and promoting pornography. And he is releasing this movie on web to avoid the certification by authorities.
When the filmmaker was asked about the film, he described that it is about a “revolutionary sexual philosophy” which is narrated by Malkova. He also shared few pictures on his twitter account and his post read, “I truly believe that there’s no location on earth which is more beautiful and more monumental than a woman’s body.”
In another report, a writer named P. Jaya Kumar filed a case against Varma at Hyderabad City Civil Court for allegedly violating copyright. Jaya Kumar claimed that the filmmaker made “God, Sex and Truth” using his story.
