Sandeep Vanga’s Outrageous Defence Of Kabir Singh’s Toxic Masculinity

So far, the  kindest thing  Arjun Reddy/Kabir Singh director did to  himself  was to keep quiet about all the savage attacks he has been facing regarding the  abusive violent behaviour  of his protagonist played by Vijay Deverakonda  in the Telugu film and Shahid Kapoor in its Hindi remake

One doesn’t know what  got into Vanga. But he finally decided  to talk. In a  cringe-inducing interview  to criticAnupama Chopra, Vanga  gets into the defensive  mode  with a full-on ferocity,hitting out at  critics , feminists and  other detractors.

About  the protagonist  repeatedly abusing and pushing around the girl he  loves,  Sandeep Vanga reasons, “If you can’t slap, touch your woman wherever you want, I don’t see emotion…I feel all the criticism the film faced is pseudo. When you are deeply in love there is honesty in the relationship. If you don’t have the liberty of slapping each other, I don’t see anything in that relation.”

About women in  the audience being  offended  by  Kabir Singh’s  proprietorial arrogance over  his  girlfriend Vanga  opines, “I think that these women were never in love and they never experienced it the right way. The female critics were only on the feminist side. They don’t understand the difference between description and objectivity.”

He also lashes out at critic  Rajeev Masand calling him a  “fat guy” who gave 2 stars  to Kabir Singh  and yet, gloatsVanga in  the  outrageous  interview, the film has made 2 crores.

Slyly Vanga brought in references to  two films Parinda and Sanju produced  by Anupama Chopra’s husband VidhuVinod Chopra,   to defend Kabir Singh.

But  one would seriously advise Sandeep Vanga  to   refrain  from  making  comments that  don’t  really  serve as a defence  for his  film .What they do is to  amplify his arrogance  about the volume  of  success that Kabir Singh has  got.

Not surprisingly Vanga’s interview with Anupama Chopra has met with howls of disgusted protest on the  social media.
