In what could be termed as the most sensational description anyone would ever give about critics, director Sandeep Reddy Vanga of ‘Arjun Reddy’ fame has ripped critics apart. His jibes are targeted at Bollywood critics though. Despite some famous critics giving 1-2 stars to Kabir Singh, the film collected more than 215+ crores already and here comes the director unleashing his fury on the Bollywood critics.
“Okay, these critics didn’t like me, that’s fine. But why do you talk about only one single aspect called feminism? Other than my directing and writing, there are 22 more crafts including terrific visuals, colour grading, sound design, background score and else. Why don’t you talk about them?” asks Sandeep Reddy, as he further added, “These type of pseudo-intellectuals are a threat to the film industry”.
He further compared piracy and critics, hitting a final nail into the coffin. “At least the piracy guys are a bit honest because they watch piracy film out of curiosity. But these type of critics who are parasites on film industry literally try to spoil the experience and kill it”.
During his interview with popular critic Anupama Chopra, the director made these comments and he has criticised the likes of Rajeev Masand and Sucharita Tyagi who have given terrible ratings to Kabir Singh.
