Ace and controversial director Ram Gopal Varma once again took to the social media to tweet about Arjun Reddy and relating the film to Pawan Kalyan.

He tweeted, “My belief is that if anybody from the Telangana state if even now are still fans of PK more than Vijay Deverakonda even after seeing Arjun Reddy, they are just nothing but despicable traitors to the Telangana cause as much as how the Indian betrayers were to the British.” 

He also posted a still from 'Arjun Reddy' with 'real power star Vijay Deverakonda' written on it. He stated that 'Arjun Reddy should be the star of the Telangana Film Industry' and that director 'Sandeep Reddy is the Mahatma Gandhi of the Telangana Film Industry'. 

Arjun Reddy garnered much publicity even before its release. RGV impressed with the performance of its hero Vijay Devarakonda, he commented on his intense performance and said he was 10 times better than Pawan Kalyan’s.

Pawan Kalyan fans are already angered with the film critic Kathi Mahesh‘s comments and now are furious with RGV for his comments about their hero.
