Shahid Kapoor and Kiara Advani starrer Kabir Singh has been mired in controversy ever since it’s release. While many fans praised the duo for their performance in the film, many people along with critics claimed the film to be misogynist in nature. Amidst this, director Sandeep Vanga Reddy’s comment defending the slapping scene in the film has now added fuel to the fire!
When asked about the criticism the film is facing, Vanga said, “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.” His remarks didn’t seem to go well with the audience and attracted massive backlash. However, the Kabir Singh director claimed that he was misquoted.
Amid the criticism trail, Sandeep Reddy has found support in Kangana Ranaut’s sister Rangoli Chandel. She went on a Twitter rant and compared Kabir Singh with Alia Bhatt’s character Safeena in Gully Boy, claiming the latter to be even worse and more violent.
She urged the people to protect Vanga from the fury, stating Gully Boy director Zoya Akhtar should not be treated any different. She tweeted, “I urge all outsiders to protect @imvangasandeep sir, He is no different than @ZoyaAkhtarOff so no step motherly treatment for him please”
Further Rangoli went on to terribly slam Alia’s character in Gully Boy in a series of tweets. She wrote, "yeh jo berozgaar anpadh gawar feminazi jo Kabir Singh pe kood pade hai, Inko Gully Boy ke Safeena @aliaa08 mein kuch burai nahin lagi, she was violent, abusive and criminal beyond Kabir can ever be...(contd)."
"(Contd)...every time her boy friend slept with another woman please note she never said anything to him, woh Raja beta hai, but she broke bottles on woman’s head, they are hospitalised and criminal cases were put on Safeena...(contd)"
"(Contd)...woman against woman, if your man cheats on you don’t want to talk to you not take your calls go beat up the woman he likes, yeh sab feminist ispe khade hokar taliyaan marte hain... socho !!"
"(Contd).... uske saath sex karke @aliaa08 ko bhool jata hai, Alia ke phones nahin leta, peecha choodane ke chakkar mein hai, lekin yeh Bandi Aalia, uske jisam keliye mari ja rahi hai, yeh feminism hai? She breaks Kalki’s head for what?...(contd)"
"(contd)...Raja beta ke jism mein aisa kya hai? Why she takes him back ? Why she takes this cheating cockroach back ?Every man who cheats is a coackroch, kyun Alia uske jism ki itni deewani hai jab tak woh mil nahin jata use chain nahin aata, Yeh feminism hai? Pls samjhao mujhe.”
