Kabir Singh Director Sandeep Reddy Vanga Blasted By Twitterati For His Controversial Comments On Toxic Masculinity
Sandeep Reddy Vanga’s Kabir Singh starring Shahid Kapoor and Kiara Advani set the cash registers ringing, but it even earned criticism and allegations for reeking of toxic masculinity. So recently, when the filmmaker was asked about the heavy criticism that cane along with the good numbers, defending the theme of his film, he had 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. She slapped him without a reason, at least Kabir had a reason to slap her. If you can’t slap, if you can’t touch your woman wherever you want, if you can’t kiss, I don’t see emotion there.”

Well these remarks haven’t gone down too well with the netizens who have been bashing the man, left, right and centre. Actor Gulshan Devaiah wrote, “Hello Mr @imvangasandeep maybe you are pissed off & that’s why you’re saying what you are but now I am pissed too ..so here is how I articulate my pissed off ness to you “🖕” #FCPostmortem                               guess I am never getting work from your side but I ll survive”

“I knew a Kabir Singh in college and I shudder at the thought of revisiting memories from that time of my life, all thanks to him. Didn’t think I will muster the energy to put this out but Sandeep Vanga’s interview triggered stuff even watching Arjun Reddy for context couldn’t,” wrote Twitter user Shephali Bhatt.

Another Twitter user wrote,"What an arrogant sexist prick this man #SandeepReddyVanga is! And insecure as hell. His film is a monstrous hit and yet he is rattled by what critics had to say. And no Mr. Vang’s, you do not call someone fat - that’s rude, offensive, inconsiderate and very politically incorrect."

Here are a few more reactions:
