Ranbir Kapoor and Rashmika Mandanna starrer ‘Animal’, along with being commercially successful, was also engrossed in controversies. Director Sandeep Reddy Vanga is often seen defending his film and hitting back at those who dare to criticise. In a recent interview, Sandeep revealed that Aamir Khan‘s second ex-wife Kiran Rao had called his films misogynistic (against women). While mentioning Aamir Khan’s ‘Khambe Jaisi Khadi Hai’ song, the director had said that Kiran Rao should first look at her ex’s work and then comment on his films.
Kiran Rao hits back at Sandeep Reddy Vanga
Kiran Rao, while talking to The Quint, has clearly said that she has never commented on Sandeep Reddy Vanga, because she has never seen his films. “I have never commented on Sandeep’s films because I have never seen his films. I have often spoken about misogyny and the representation of women on screen. I have talked about it many times on stage, but I have never taken the name of any film because it is not about any particular film but the entire representation,” said Rao. Aamir’s ex-wife also asked the interviewer to question Wanga as to why he assumed that Kiran was talking about his film.
