Twitterati trolls Ram Gopal Varma as he lights a cigarette instead of candle or diya during #9pm9minute call
Yesterday while the nation was busy lighting candles or burning diyas during the ‘9 pm-9minute’ initiative, Ram Gopal Varma had a unique way of participating in it. Well, the eccentric filmmaker lighted a cigarette instead of a candle. And that was enough for the netizens to troll the director brutally.
As a part of ‘9 pm-9minute’, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had urged the people to either burn diyas or light candles or use the mobile flashlight as a symbolic gesture to dispel the darkness caused by the Coronavirus crisis. Amidst that, Ram Gopal Varma shared a video of him lighting his cigarette alongside the caption “9 Pm”.

Of course, the filmmaker was just trying to showcase his eccentric sense of humour. However, the netizens didn’t waste any time in trolling him for his post. One of the users joked, “Good u didn’t light up urself out of patriotism(sic)”. Whereas another user commented, “Hope this light will finish you soon(sic)”
