Sandeep defends infidelity in Animal

A week after the movie’s release, Vanga is busy giving interviews and defending multiple criticisms surrounding Animal. In a recent one with Gallata Plus, Vanga addressed the scene where Ranbir Kapoor’s character forbids Rashmika Mandanna’s character from remarrying in case he doesn’t return from the battlefield.

Vanga shared, “In relationships, most of the time, you’re done. Multiple partners could be a habit. Once you’re with one person, the share of love with that one person, you are done for life. That could be the exchange between Geetanjali and Ranvijay. And knowing the psyche of Geetanjali, there are so many things in a relationship that are unsaid, so he must have felt that she can’t make it with anybody else, so she’d better remain single.”

Vanga talking about the situation said, “He doesn’t want his kids to be seeing Geetanjali with another father. It has nothing to do with a generalised feeling, it’s purely personal. The pseudo-feminists looked at it and said, ‘Oh, so he can sleep with another woman, but she can’t marry again’. I found it very funny.”
