Who is the most regressive filmmaker in Bollywood, and has made regressive content, that impacted real life too?

OP, you should’ve included that Vanga guy who directed Kabir Singh. 

Puri Jagannath ( Liger ) has made very shitty and regressive films down south.

From your list, this may be very unpopular but I cannot stand any Barjatya film.

How are these the best examples of regressive filmmakers you could come up with? smiley36

I named more recent ones. Otherwise BW has had more craps in past.

I did not name anyone from regional cinema as I do not want to cause any regional wars controversy here. Nor I know full names of all filmmakers from there.

All those filmmakers who normalize obsessive stalking as a mode of wooing your lady love. I just feel like kicking their butt so hard that they will directly land on Mars. Movies like Kabir Singh, Arjun Singh etc should be banned and all the digital copies should be destroyed to the level that can never be retrieved.

Then we have those gem filmmakers who hire an actress only to expose her pathetically. Most South movies are obsessed with navel show. That's yuck level ♾️.

And then our very own barjatya. I find his movies so regressive.

I can't point exact names of directors as I don't know many, so I mentioned my criteria. I think only SLB doesn't fit.

Rather SLB has the opposite problem. He puts women on a pedestal and can't see the flaws -especially in his historical women characters.

Regressive? All those "friendship" movies like Saajan where the heroes seem too eager to palm off the love of his life to his best friend. Varun's Judwaa with all the butt slapping is in the same category. Aamir harassing Juhi in Ishq and Madhuri in Dil. Sanjay Dutt mocking Urmila for being an ugly spinster in Khoobsurat.

The worst regressive film has unfortunately been a Malayalam film Chocolate which has too many regressive remarks to address. Prithviraj however admitted that he would never do such roles again unless the screenplay does not glorify such characters and shows them clearly being in the wrong. Which is more than what Shahid or Vijay will admit.

David Dhawan will make another movie just for being excluded from this list

Without even seeing the options, my first thought was - Suraj Barjatya. Pata nahi kis zamane me reh rahe hain sahab abhi bhi... Kuch zyada hi sanskari type hain. But many people of not just small towns or villages but also from big cities and metros can still relate to his sanskari families... Anyways i loved his maine pyar kiya. Hahk was okay. Hssh was unbearable and vivah was torture. Uske baad koi nahi dekhi. Mpkdh ke to kuchh scenes hi kaafi the mujhe repel karne ke liye smiley36
