“If Draupadi is the President then who are the Pandavas? And more importantly, who are the Kauravas?” Read his tweet.
Telangana BJP leader Gudur Narayan Reddy filed a complaint against Mr Verma for the tweet accusing him of insulting the SC/ST community. “Police has promised us that they will take strict action against him, after which, I don’t think he will tweet again or make such a bad statement against anyone,” he said.
The filmmaker soon issued a clarification: “Draupadi is my favorite character in the Mahabharata, but since the name is so rare, I only remembered the respective characters and hence my expression. There was absolutely no intention to hurt anyone’s sentiments”. .
This was just said in a serious irony and not intended in any other way.. Draupadi is my favorite character in Mahabharat, but since the name is so rare, I missed the respective characters and hence my expression. There is absolutely no intention to hurt anyone’s feelings https://t.co/q9EZ5TcIIV
