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”.
