The two are engaged in a verbal fight ever since Varma provoked Johar by expressing his desire to remake Raavan as My Name Is Raavan.
"I want to remake Raavan and I want to request Mani to remake '(Ram Gopal Varma Ki) Aag," Varma posted as a reaction to Mani Ratnam's recently released Raavan on his Twitter page. It was followed by another post: "I (have) got a better idea... I will make My name is Raavan and Mani should make Raavan Ki Kurbaan."
The comment was an indirect dig at Johar's movies My Name is Khan and Kurbaan.
Varma did not even spare superstar Shah Rukh Khan and commented on his upcoming sci-fi project Ra.One.
"Let's all hope and pray that Ra.One does not become SRK ki Baarish. Let's all hope and pray that Ra.One does not become SRK ki Aag," he added.
Johar, who was infuriated by Varma's comments, replied: "You have an amazing sense of humour Ramu (Varma)! Never shows up in your films though."
On that Varma said: "Karan, because of the constant bashing I receive, I developed my sense of humour as a defence mechanism. And talking of my films not having humour, check out the great comedy I made called RGV Ki Aag.''
