RGV’s pun on Ugadi & coronavirus

With Telugu states enjoying the Ugadi (Telugu New Year) on March 25, filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma took a pun at the ensuing lockdown imposed by chief ministers of the respective Telugu states. Taking to social media, RGV wrote a sarcastic tweet on the police officers beating public black and blue who are flouting lockdown norms.

RGV wrote in Telugu, which loosely translates in English as,  “Stay at home if you want Ugadi recipe. Go outside if you want your body to get smashed.”
