Ram Gopal Varma's 'Guns & Thighs' trailer storms the net

Mumbai: Ram Gopal Varma, who is coming up with his new web series "Guns and Thighs" reckons that social media is just noise that should be not considered seriously at any point.

Ram Gopal Varma joined Twitter on 27th May 2009 and ironically, he left the same on 27th May 2017. Even while exiting Twitter, he tweeted in his signature style, "My pleasantly unpleasant surprise is I am getting out of Twitter.To all my followers, no thanks for following me all these years", according to Mid-day. To all my followers, no thanks for following me all these years.

RGV is going to explore the life in the slums of Mumbai, crime, poverty, flesh trade and such themes in this series which is jointly produced by Stormcell Entertainment, a German based company and Ram Gopal Varma Talkies.

After quitting Twitter, RGV said that he would use photo and video sharing website/app Instagram. Controversial Varma says that underworld has never invested money into Bollywood, unlike what most people believe, and there was never really a "nexus" between them.

Varma's action of quitting twitter is being seen as a new publicity stunt to promote his debut web series "Guns & Thighs", which looked as a rehash of his gangster films with loads of vulgarity, violence and nudity.

Talking about the connection between underworld and Bollywood, in an interview, RGV said the activities of underworld with regard to Bollywood were mostly limited to making calls to either scare celebrities or help their friends. The story revolves around the time when underworld activities were at rife in Mumbai. "It defeats the goal".

Interestingly, the decision came right after the launch of the trailer of his original web series "Guns and Thighs".
