Ram Gopal Varma's 'The Man Who Killed Gandhi' opens a controversy; Babu Gogineni calls the first look poster as Outrageous

Ram Gopal Varma announced a new movie, 'The Man Who Killed Gandhi' and it has already started creating controversy. The director released the first look of the movie and surprisingly, Babu Gogineni found fault with it. This morning, he came up with his response to the poster, calling it outrageous. At the same time, he added his views to the same. However, Ram Gopal Varma gave a strong counter saying that he is in his limits of his freedom of expression and asked Babu to watch the full film.

 
"OUTRAGEOUS POSTER! To morph the pictures of the assassin and the assassinated, and to weld them together for a film is wicked. Even evil. At the very least it shows a lack of respect for human life and a gross insensitivity to basic human decencies. Is this a nasty attempt to show that Godse the assassin is half-Gandhi or that Gandhi the victim is half-Godse? In which moral Universe will this irresponsibility be considered OK? This is unparalleled mischief. I ask that Sri Ram Gopal Varma withdraw this poster and acknowledge a colossal failure of judgement and rectitude. In the past he changed film titles when he had to do so, he withdrew from films he earlier threatened he would make. There are no principles involved, he is just having fun in an upside world where the assasin is valued more than his victim." posted Babu Gogineni on his Facebook profile.
 
As a response to Babu Gogineni, Ram Gopal Varma wrote, "The intention of the morph will be understood in the final film and i am within my rights to exercise my artistic vision like u are in offending God believers. Its not right on ur part to jump the gun even before u see final product. I suggest u take a chill pill and have a beer."
 
Ram Gopal Varma concluded with a tweet. "Freedom of speech and expression is intended to be protected from those who get offended. if nobody gets offended you won’t need it." posted RGV.
