He, however, maintained his stand and defended his tweet, with another tweet saying, "The negative noise towards my tweet on Sunny Leone arises from ultimate hypocrisy. She has more honesty and more self respect than any woman. All u illiterates who dint understand my earlier 2 tweets on Sunny Leone atleast go through dictionary unless u are uneducated for that too."

The director did not stop here. On the same day he also questioned the idea of Women's Day and proposed that it be called Men's Day because 'men celebrate women much more than women celebrate women.'

This is not the first time that the filmmaker has courted controversy. Varma has faced criticism several times for his comments on women including one he made on US First Lady Melania Trump.
