Ram Gopal Varma Reveals Being 'Bothered' By Kangana Ranaut Calling Urmila Matondkar 'Soft P*orn Star'; 'It Is In Distaste'
Kangana Ranaut created quite a stir after she called Urmila Matondkar a 'soft porn star'. The Manikarnika actress had received a lot of flak for the same. Urmila Matondkar too had expressed shock over Kangana's remark and expressed her disappointment. While the chapter is over, Rangeela director Ram Gopal Varma recently stated that he was bothered by Kangana calling Urmila Matondkar a 'soft porn star'. In an interview, he stated that it was the result of freedom of speech.

In an interview with Bollywood Bubble, he was quoted saying, "Yes, it bothers me, but what I am saying is that freedom of speech is fundamentally about that. If it doesn’t bother somebody, what is the point of speaking? When you say you need freedom of speech, it is only when it offends somebody. Now, I say a lot of things about a lot of people. I am sure they get bothered and offended. So, when I do that, I don’t have the right to talk about somebody else saying something about someone."

The filmmaker further added, "The whole point of social media, I feel, is that people express opinions. Sometimes, they use language which could be very offensive, but that is the whole point of freedom of speech. If it doesn’t offend somebody, why do you need freedom? I would like to believe that it is in distaste and in the context of my personal feelings about Urmila, about her performance, about whatever she said."

Earlier, to PTI, Urmila Matondkar had commented on Kangana Ranaut and said, "I think she has been given undue importance, and (I) do not think of giving any further importance to her."
