"I Genuinely Don't Bother About Pseudo-feminists": Director Sandeep Vanga On Glorifying Toxic Masculinity In Shahid Kapoor Starrer 'Kabir Singh'

  • The upcoming movie is the Hindi remake of Telugu hit 'Arjun Reddy.' The original blockbuster starred Vijay Deverakonda and Shalini Pandey.
  • The film has been directed by Sandeep Reddy Vanga and produced by Bhushan Kumar, Murad Khetani, Krishan Kumar, and Ashwin Varde. It will hit the big screens on June 21 this year. 

Shahid Kapoor starrer 'Kabir Singh' is all set to release on June 21 and the audience is already excited about the 'Arjun Reddy' remake. While many have appreciated Shahid Kapoor's act, some have also criticised it. The original film was criticised for promoting chauvinism, so when the director Sandeep Vanga, in one of the interviews was asked how would he respond if similar charges come up against ‘Kabir Singh’, the director says that he does not bother about pseudo-feminists. 

Vanga said: "This is not arrogance, but I genuinely do not bother about pseudo-feminists and pseudo-sympathisers. There is not one place where I have showed women in a derogatory way. There is no bum or cleavage shot. I never asked my audience to look at the girl’s body."

"Before people ask me this, they should look at other films in India. I don’t think anyone with these concerns are actually sensitive towards women. That question could have been put forward in a different way. Just because something is wrong in society, you cannot put out your frustration in a question like that," he concluded.

Meanwhile, just a few days ahead of the release of Shahid Kapoor starrer 'Kabir Singh', makers dropped a new song 'Tujhe Kitna Chahne Lage' on Friday.

The two-minute forty-three seconds video features Shahid along with Kiara Advani. The song showcases Shahid in a younger look. Something new for the audience as the actor hasn't been seen in a clean-shaven avatar since 'Jab We Met.'

The video begins with the actor smoking on his bike and going on a long drive, taking the audiences through a flashback in which he can be seen sharing happy moments with the woman he is in love with.  

Slowly the song slides to a sad phase where Shahid looks lonely and dejected, as his lady love seems to be getting engaged with someone else. The romantic track has been crooned by none other than Arijit Singh. It has been penned and composed by Mithoon.

The upcoming movie is the Hindi remake of Telugu hit 'Arjun Reddy.' The original blockbuster starred Vijay Deverakonda and Shalini Pandey. When the teaser of 'Kabir Singh' dropped online, Vijay took to Twitter to appreciate Shahid's look.

The film has been directed by Sandeep Reddy Vanga and produced by Bhushan Kumar, Murad Khetani, Krishan Kumar, and Ashwin Varde. It will hit the big screens on June 21 this year.
