Director Reddy Dismisses 'Animal' Misogyny Claims

In a recent interview with media, director Sandeep Reddy Vanga, known for films like 'Kabir Singh' and 'Arjun Reddy,' addressed the controversy surrounding his latest film, 'Animal,' starring Ranbir Kapoor.

The movie has faced criticism for being perceived as misogynistic and excessively violent. When asked if he sees Ranbir's character, Ranvijay Singh, as misogynistic, Sandeep denied it.

He clarified his stance by stating, "Misogyny is disrespect to women. This is the actual definition, right. So no. Even Kabir Singh, even Animal, even me as a person. I always feel my production house name is Bhadrakali Pictures, and I don't know why people think…not too many people, only these 15-20 jokers. But it's a wrong word to use on ‘Kabir Singh’, ‘Animal’."

Expressing his views on the current trend of dissecting movies, Sandeep remarked that the scrutiny has gone too far and has become overly toxic.

Meanwhile, 'Animal' continues to perform exceptionally well at the box office, surpassing Rs 835 crore in worldwide earnings.

The film, featuring an ensemble cast including Anil Kapoor, Rashmika Mandanna, Bobby Deol, and Triptii Dimri, remains a significant topic of discussion.
