Ram Gopal Varma was recently in the news for the positive response to the trailer of his upcoming flick, Sarkar 3. But the filmmaker has now made headlines for the wrong reasons by comparing Tiger Shroff to ‘bikini babe’ and actress Urmila Matondkar and passing comments over his looks. 

Yesterday, on Tiger’s birthday, Varma shared a shirtless picture of the actor and captioned it, “@iTIGERSHROFF U are great at martial arts but if BRUCE LEE ever posed like a bikini babe like u he wouldn't hav bcm BRUCE LEE..Please think.” 

He shared the same picture again where he urged the young actor to learn machoism from his father, Jackie Shroff. He said, “@iTIGERSHROFF Please learn machoism from @bindasbhidu who even without martial arts poses more like a man and never like this.” 

Varma didn’t stop at this, though. He shared the same picture for the third time with the caption, “@iTIGERSHROFF u might have a six pack of muscle groups better than @bindasbhidu but his eyes and body language have far better many groups.” 

However, he then clarified his comments to Jackie and wife Ayesha Shroff saying, “Hey @bindasbhidu all my tweets on @iTIGERSHROFF are purely as ur fan and not otherwise ..please tell this to  @AyeshaShroff and him.” 

But there was another twist in the tale. Despite sounding sorry in his earlier tweet, Varma took another dig at Tiger by comparing him with Urmila Matondkar. He said, “@ITigershroff Truly real men like Bruce Lee  and @bindasbhidu don't ever pose in a Urmilaish way.”

The filmmaker has been irking people with his tweets ever since he joined Twitter. His comments over actress Sridevi’s beauty has even offended her husband, Boney Kapoor in the past.
