Ram Gopal Varma accused of plagiarising God, Sex and Truth.

The trailer of Ram Gopal Varma’s God, Sex and Truth (GST) featuring adult star Mia Malkova has already created quite a buzz – for good as well as bad reasons - on social media. Shot like an adult film, the trailer talks about the purpose behind being a porn star. Mia Malkova talks about her philosophy and why she decided to explore herself in the world of voyeuristic videos. In fact, she goes to the extent of explaining ‘moral and religious interpretation of natural feelings.’

Hours after the trailer went viral; Varma has been accused of plagiarising the idea behind the film from his Sarkar 3 story-writer P Jaya Kumar. Talking to popular Telugu portal Telugu 360, Kumar said, “GST is the content from a book cum script I wrote. I sent it to RGV for an opinion or a review and when I saw the trailer, I was shocked because GST is a blind carbon copy of my work right from the first word Mia Malkova uttered till the end of it.” Calling the process of using his script without his consent “intellectual rape”, Kumar said he decided to not associate with Varma post Sarkar 3. He plans on taking the legal route to handle the matter.

Despite drawing mixed reactions, the trailer features Malkova, who is the single actor in the video, speaks her mind while in the act. At one point, she tries her best to attach a motive to the ‘aim and destination’ of sexuality. While breaking the fourth wall, she says with ample conviction, ‘woman is not a property’. The complete video of God, Sex and Truth will be released on Mia Malkova’s official Vimeo Channel on January 26, 2018.
