Ram Gopal Varma, referring to Albert Einstein's idea in his next tweet, wrote, ''Kumbh Mela on the left is 2021 and on the right is Jamaat 2020, and the reason for this idiocy is known only by God.''

Ram Gopal Varma did not stop here, in his third tweet, while sharing the picture of the crowd gathered at the Kumbh Mela, wrote, 'What you are seeing is not the Kumbh Mela, but it is a corona bomb. I wonder who will be made responsible for this viral exhibition.'  

RGV has received immense criticism as people have pointed out that Tablighi Jamat was avoiding SOPs when covid-19 restrictions were in place however, Kumbh Mela processions have taken place when restrictions have been lifted. Some people have called RGV a pseudo-leftist while some have made personal remarks on the director as well.
