Despite protests and an FIR against Ram Gopal Varma, the director of "God, Sex and Truth", starring American pornstar Mia Malkova, released the controversial film online on Saturday.
Hours before the release, RGV advised to the anticipated fans to watch the film with good quality headphones.
“Watch #GodSexTruth with head phones or good speakers because it’s @mmkeeravani‘s music which is its strength as much as @Mia Malkova‘s Beauty,” he tweeted.
According to the makers, God, Sex and Truth will be a philosophical treatise of Mia Malkova
On Friday, an FIR was registered against Varma in Hyderabad allegedly for the indecent portrayal of women in "God, Sex and Truth (GST)".
The FIR was registered on the complaint lodged by a social activist.
The activist also claimed that Varma had made some personal comments against her, the police said.
The charges against Varma include making an indecent movie and making "abusive" comments.
Recently, Varma shared the trailer of 'God, Sex and Truth'. Soon the trailer went viral on social media, but the women protestors took objection to the explicit content of the trailer.
Last Saturday, several protesters, including members from the All India Democratic Women Association (AIDWA) and other women associations, said the director had used abusive words against women in one of the Telugu TV news channel interviews on Friday.
Earlier, BJP Mahila Morcha filed a complaint against the film and called for a ban on it.
“What is the message that Varma will be giving to the youth in India with such a dirty film?” asked K Nagalakshmi, the BJP women wing leader.
RGV, as the filmmaker is known in Bollywood circles, says that “God, Sex and Truth” is about telling the “truth behind sex as intended by God.”
“It has explicit nude imagery which will showcase each and every part of Mia Malkova’s beautiful naked body in a never before seen magnificence,” RGV had said in a statement.
“She also speaks graphically and hard sexual words, because the whole point of this endeavour is to enhance and elevate whatever people conventionally look down upon,” RGV added.
