Southern director Sandeep Reddy Vanga’s Hindi film Kabir Singh starring Shahid Kapoor and Kiara Advani in the lead role is much in the limelight for all the right and wrongs reasons. While the film is earning massive at the box office, Sandeep has hit the headlines over his controversial statements on the criticism received by the audience and critics for Kabir Singh. However, Samantha Akkineni is quite disturbed with Sandeep’s reaction to his film’s criticism. The Telugu actress recently took to Instagram story and reacted to the bits from the interview as, “Deeply disturbing.”

In an interview with Anupama Chopra, post the release of Kabir Singh, Sandeep Reddy reacted to all the negative comments on Kabir Singh. The director also spoke about how critics have attacked the film. He 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."

He further added that the women, who had said they were uncomfortable during a few shots in the film, had never experienced real love. "I feel that they were never in love, probably they've never experienced it in the right way."

Despite criticisms over the kissing and slapping scenes in the film, Kabir Singh has crossed Rs 200 crore mark worldwide at the box office. "When I started this film, I knew it would be a big success at the box office, but I never thought that the rage would be repeated, and it has multiplied four times now," Vanga said about the success of the movie.

wheres kangana now

I don't know where Vangareddy gets his stupid opinion from. It's not a traditional indian idea. Most indian elders will tell you that a girl/woman is lakshmi and you never raise your voice, let alone your hand to a woman.

Samantha is close to female super star like Nayanthara. She has proved that she can carry movie on her shoulder with U turn and now Oh! Baby. She will continue this for quite some time because now she can bring audience to theater by herself. She is the right combination of luck, feminism, talent, and diplomacy. She is not aggressive and loud like so called feminist actresses. I am happy she openly presented her opinion. Hope it opens some assertive actions from other actresses who already proved themselves and don’t need to be on good side of directors’.

now a days films like arjunreddy or kabirsingh etc many films like rx100 these types of films are coming giving bad message especially teenagers are spoiling.i wonder how censor people are allowing these types of movies.although appreciating samantha for openly expressing.if big celebrities like you freely express normal people also thinks about this express openly.

Must say she is fabulous and brave! Bolly actresses where r u?

sonam did kaha ho ??? farhan bhaiya aap bhi gayab ho ???? sona didi also missing.

Where is Sonam Kapoor who had problem with Vivek Oberoi's tweet about Aish but has no problem with this idiot

What do you expect from someone who openly supported and sided with the metoo accused Raju hirani as soon as the news broke out while earlier she had said she'll always support sexual harassment victims and give them the benefit of doubt for it's very tough for them to come out and reveal it to the world. She is highly selective and a 1st order hypocrite and that proven many times.

Thank god stars are now condemning this highly regressive and disturbing interview, where each and every statement reflects the deep misogyny, and sick mindset which is then reflected in the movie too.... Not against creative freedom, but can we let such people influence masses

Well done Samantha! Kudos!

I hope Shahid too conveys his objection to this deeply offensive interview.
Doing a movie on a fictional character(though glorified) is one thing but endorsing and promoting such problematic, regressive ideologies offscreen/in real life, is far worse and dangerous.

But he posted the interview from his twitter handle and flaunting collections as if it’s his achievement.His acting was copied from someone junior and nothing great in portraying the exact same copy
