Bollywood filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma is being criticized yet again for his recent controversial statement involving women. The director, in a recent interview with TOI, has maintained his previous stance of "liking women for their bodies and not their brains."

When asked if he still believed in his earlier statement about liking women just for their bodies, Ram Gopal Varma reportedly said, "The brain does not have a gender. A woman can have it, a man can have it. The sexual aspect is very particular and specific. A woman has an extra thing which is her sensuality and which I admire. I mentioned that in my book 'Guns & Thighs' also that I like women for their bodies and not their brains." He also talked about actor/singer Suchitra Krishnamoorthy's confession of her desire to marry him.

In response to that, the director was quoted as saying, "I have known her for 10-15 years. That was her way of (expressing) her memories. She was just joking; I always have a funny way of saying things. I don't want to marry anybody; not just her. I don't believe in marriage anymore. It's my wish. I am not into relationships and too busy to have any kind of emotional entanglement. I like life for the pleasures it offers."
