The argument between the government and Baba Ramdev is escalating rapidly. Ram Gopal Varma feels Baba Ramdev is doing all this for fame.

'Since I am not into Babas I don't know who Ramdev is but the brand new fad seems to be fasting for fame. Purana picture Anna hazaare media theatre se nikalgayi aur naya picture Ramdev lag gayi. Since we as a nation are so much into Babas why not we just abolish political parties nd governments nd make the Babas only our leaders. Then v al cn js pray chant do yoga nd instd of fasting agnst corruption v cn js starve 2 death nd lay our souls 2 rest at various Babas feet. Since I am very ignorant on these matters can someone please educate me if Anna Ramdev and Baba hazare are fasting for the same cause,' he tweeted.

In fact, he took a dig at Shah Rukh Khan, Rajnikanth, Sachin Tendulkar and Katrina Kaif, asking them to fast for the nation. 'Cnsdrng our grt indian mentalty mre thn Hazares Ramdevs fasting v mt gt btr rslts if sharuk khan rajniknt sachn tndlkr nd katrina kaif fast. Also celebrities won't mind fasting as anyway they are already into dieting,' he added later.
