Sandeep Reddy Vanga defends ‘Kabir Singh’; says, “Criticism was bizarre”
Shahid Kapoor and Kiara Advani starrer ‘Kabir Singh’, which went on to become an instant box-office success, has created a lot of controversy for its misogynistic content. The Hindi remake of the south film ‘Arjun Reddy’ has seen critics slam it for its toxic masculinity and the glorification of an addicted protagonist.
While speaking about the criticism that the film has received, Sandeep Vanga was talking with senior journalist Anupama Chopra. “When I started this film, I knew it would be a big success at the box office, but I never thought that the rage would be repeated, and it has multiplied four times now. They were only on the feminist side, they didn’t speak about anything else,” he said. You can also check out the video, here below.
He added further, “When you are deeply in love and deeply connected to a woman (and vice versa), if you don’t have the liberty of slapping each other, then I don’t see anything there.”
Coming back to the film, ‘Kabir Singh‘ film has made Rs. 218 crores domestically in just two weeks. The director said that the film might cross Rs. 300 crores in just a few days.
