His barrage of recent tweets about South icon Rajinikanth has landed him in a soup. Ramu tweeted, "He is a bad looker, doesn't have 6 packs, short with a disproportionate body n knows just 2 nd half dance movements... Nowhere in world a man who looks like this can be SuperStar. I wonder what he did to God that God did this to him."

Since then Thailava's fans have been going berserk berating Ramu for his comments. Yesterday, RGV replied, "Dumb fans of Rajni who dint realise my tweets r compliment shud realise Rajni himself makes fun of himself." Next is what?
