Varma seems to have apologised to Malayalam superstar Mammootty, two days after taking pot-shots at the veteran actor on micro-blogging site Twitter. RGV had complimented Mammootty’s son Dulquer Salmaan for his work in the film O Kadhal Kanmani. The Ace Maker had called the latter a far superior actor than his father which did not seem to go down too well with Salmaan.
Varma later apologised to the father son duo after posting a barrage of messages on Twitter. He tweeted, “@dulQuer I request u to Pls explain this to ur dad and if he too is offended I apologize to him too.” Adding, “@dulQuer But I still think u are far superior 2 ur father in my honest view as a democratic free citizen of india expressing my opinion.” [sic] In spite of the apology, RGV maintained his stance that Salmaan was a better actor than Mammootty.
