The gruesome Hyderabad rape case has left everyone shook and people have taken to their social media to express their rage and raised their voices about the safety of women in India. Several famous personalities such as Salman Khan, Anushka Sharma, Virat Kohli, Akshay Kumar, and others too, have expressed their anger about the same and have demanded justice. Recently, Kabir Singh and Arjun Reddy director Sandeep Reddy Vanga posted a tweet on women’s safety after Disha’s murder case, and now filmmaker Vikramaditya Motwane took a jibe at him, with a reference to his film Kabir Singh, starring Shahid Kapoor.
This comment is with context to a scene in Shahid Kapoor’s film Kabir Singh in which he slaps Kiara Advani’s character Preeti. The film itself was criticized by a section of people for glorifying misogyny, toxic masculinity and violence.
Meanwhile, Sandeep Reddy Vanga was also called a ‘hypocrite’ by Netizens after his post on women's safety. They recalled certain scenes in Kabir Singh, where we see the male slapping the female and the part where the lead actor wants to rape a woman on knifepoint but he lets her go, and called out the director for his hypocrisy.
