If the unstoppable Ram Gopal Varma has bid adieu to his favourite venting-ground it isn’t because he was daunted by trolls.
Explaining his hasty retreat from the binge of brashness that characterized his stint on Twitter Ramu says, “Trollers and controversies never bothered me and they are not the reason why I decided to quit twitter. I had better reasons to quit.”
When persuaded to spill the beans Ramu took and deep breath and said, “For starters I was living only in the twitter world .I just wanted to change my world and that can only happen if I completely isolate myself.”
He also claims to have found a more creatively satisfying social network . “I will be more active on the social media than I was on twitter but in a very serious way, whether it’s films or webseries or short films.Instead of tweets I want to communicate through pictures and videos on Instagram.”
Does Ramu have any regrets about some of his most controversial tweets? “None at all, except when I picked Tiger Shroff for no reason. I regret that. But what’s done is done. I now look forward to making my web seriesGuns & Thighs.The digital world is a direct connection between film maker and viewers .Unlike a tweet which can be misconstrued or carelessly put, even a short film ,due to an elaborate creative process involved will put it out more effectively than a hastily written tweet.”
