New Delhi: Recently filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma took to microblogging site Twitter to 'compliment' Rajinikanth and ended up earning the ire of the superstar's fans.
Actress Amy Jackson posted a picture on twitter of her posing with Rajinikanth and director Ram Gopal Varma swooped in to go on a Twitter rant.
Using the same picture, RGV, in a series of tweets, wrote, "This man by being the biggest star ever completely destroys the notion of looks being important for stardom. He is a bad looker, doesn't have 6 packs, short with a disproportionate body n knows just 2 nd half dance movements. Nowhere in world a man who looks like this can be SuperStar .I wonder what he did to God that God did this to him".
He continued, "Rajni sir is ultimate proof that no one can ever f**king know why the audience likes what in cinema? The greatest psychiatrists in the world will collapse with the challenging task of explaining the Rajni Phenomenon.''
However, Varma received backlash from the 65-year-old actor's fans by sending him nasty messages.

Responding to their tweets, Varma said, ''Some superdumb fans of Rajnikant dint even realise that I was only complimenting the superstar. Dumb fans of Rajni who dint realise my tweets r compliment shud realise Rajni himself makes fun of himself.''
Rajinikanth, who recently has been honoured with Padma Vibhushan, is busy with his magnum opus '2.0,' the sequel to 2010 blockbuster hit 'Enthiran,' directed by S Shankar.
