This year's Rio Olympics saw India return with a bronze and silver medal each. While the country is joyous and proud, as always, there are a certain few who just can't keep away from spreading the negativity. To begin with, Shobhaa De's unnecessary tweet about the athletes going all the way to Rio just to click selfies created quite a stir all over the country. Apart from this, another tweet by a Pakistani journalist about India's performance at the Olympics, stating how winning one Bronze would be celebrated as if we have won 20 Golds, united the Indian Tweeple against him.
Time and again we have been told to learn from other people's mistakes, but looks like Ram Gopal Varma has never heard of this concept. After Shobhaa De's failed attempt at a public apology and the wave of hatred that was charged at the Paki journalist, RGV has become the third idiot, by taking a dig at India's performance in Rio.
In a series of tweets, RGV stated his opinion, which honestly is as annoying as his movies.
Here's what he said:
If for one silver we are jumping up and down screaming Mera Bharat Mahan. how high should be Americans jumping for 46 gold and 37 silver— Ram Gopal Varma (@RGVzoomin) August 22, 2016
From the USA to South Korea, he went on comparing India's performance with other participating countries.
A 32 crore population US wins 46 gold and a 5 crore population South Korea wins 9 gold nd a 120 crores population india wins 1 silver..Wah!— Ram Gopal Varma (@RGVzoomin) August 22, 2016
He pretty much went on an idiotic rant by comparing the two countries, completely disrespecting every Indian sportsperson who had participated in the games.
Combined value of 46 gold 38 silver 49 bronze compared to just 1 silver is that many times more Unka US Mahan compared to Apna Bharat Mahan😔— Ram Gopal Varma (@RGVzoomin) August 22, 2016
He went on and on stating the same thought, without even paraphrasing his lines much.
But then, we don't blame him, because that's exactly how he makes his movies!
If for 1 silver we call ourselves incredible india what should US call itself for 46 gold 37 silver and 49 bronze..just asking?— Ram Gopal Varma (@RGVzoomin) August 22, 2016
To be honest, this just looks like a cheap attempt to make himself look like a relevant, pseudo intellectual.
If for just 1 silver we call ourselves incredible india I wonder what we will call ourselves if we ever win 46 gold 37 silver and 49 bronze?— Ram Gopal Varma (@RGVzoomin) August 22, 2016
