While a lot of fans are reacting about Ram Gopal Varma’s act to instigate Sri Reddy to abuse Pawan Kalyan, a lot of industry insiders too are now speaking out in support of the actor-politician. Pawan Kalyan along with his brother Nagendra Babu and many other actors have gathered today at the Telugu Film Chamber in Hyderabad and are discussing further action on Ram Gopal Varma and Sri Reddy. And lending support to Pawan Kalyan, popular director Puri Jagannadh tweeted earlier today and said that he did not like what Ram Gopal Varma did and he will stand by Pawan Kalyan. Puri Jagannadh also mentioned that it was Pawan Kalyan who gave him a break and he will always be indebted to him. Reacting to this, Ram Gopal Varma replied saying he realises he did a mistake and has already tendered an apology for it.

Couple of days ago, in a video message, Ram Gopal Varma said that his main motto was to give Sri Reddy a stronger platform and more support sine fans of Pawan Kalyan would be against her and she would get more support for many women organisations. “It all started when I first spoke with Sri Reddy over the phone. I spoke with her after I realised the intensity her protest had because no girl would strip her clothes on roads and stand there asking for justice. And I had seen her previous videos too which were superficial. But this act of her really caught my attention,” said Ram Gopal Varma.
I understand ur feelings ..it’s a mistake I made and I already said Sorry sir https://t.co/TCjRqNGNj3

And earlier today, Pawan Kalyan hit back at Ram Gopal Varma, Sri Reddy and few others regarding the cuss word used against him by the protesting actor and said that this is all a political game being played against him. In a series of tweets, Pawan Kalyan touched upon many things but all those tweets addressed individuals in context with utmost courtesy and was only in questioning tone. Pawan Kalyan quoted all his tweets – “If I cannot defend the honour of my mother I better die” – referring to the abuse Sri Reddy had against him.
