However, the filmmaker only apologises to those who are 'genuinely offended' and not those who 'ranted for publicity'.

A day after the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) threatened to start a ‘joota maaro andolan’ (shoe-throwing protest) against Ram Gopal Varma, the filmmaker has issued an apology over his controversial tweet on International Women’s Day (8 March). However, this apology has come with a disclaimer.
The Sarkar 3 maker first tweeted this post apologising to all those who felt offended with his Women’s Day tweet.
Was just expressing my feelings but I apologise to all who were offended due to my unintended insensitive tweets in context of women's day— Ram Gopal Varma (@RGVzoomin) March 9, 2017
Shortly, Varma posted another tweet wherein he clarified that he was only apologising to those who were genuinely offended and not to those who ranted for publicity.
My apology is only to those who genuinely got offended and not to those who ranted for publicity nd threatened to take law into their hands— Ram Gopal Varma (@RGVzoomin) March 9, 2017
We wonder which bracket the filmmaker put the NCP in.
Varma had created a stir on social media when he had tweeted this post on Women’s Day
I wish all the women in the world give men as much happiness as Sunny Leone gives— Ram Gopal Varma (@RGVzoomin) March 8, 2017
Interestingly, NCP spokesperson Vidya Chavan had told us that mere apology would not be enough as they sought punishment for Varma.
