Sandeep Reddy Vanga speaks about the female characters in Animal
During the interview, Sandeep Reddy Vanga spoke about how the female characters in his movies are shaped. Vanga said, "I never thought this. This is not deliberate. I didn’t deliberately put the approach. See what discussion they had in the flight, other than you know, ‘Don’t talk about my father like that. What do you mean? You know my father’s is a great father.’ With that line I wanted to show that this is a shift of discussion. Hardly they spoke about anything and now you see there’s a big argument happening. I thought that would be nice dramatic quotient."
He added, "When you see people living in US, the kind of lifestyle they have. When you come in a house and stay with the in-laws, it is not the same because women are very independent in US, especially Indian women. If you ask any of them, they doesn’t want to come to India because they feel in US, there is a much independent space. In the film, it’s a palace they live in. I feel everything is in control. About the sleeping on the lap thing, I feel in the film the way Rashmika was calling him, I felt like she was calling a kid."
Sandeep Reddy Vanga's views on imperfect characters in films
During the same interview, Sandeep Reddy Vanga mentioned that he has always loved imperfect characters in movies. He said that he was captivated by the presence of flawed men on screen. He said, "Whatever films I liked in my childhood were all of flawed men. When I went to film school, I was exposed to flawed men watching the movies of David Fincher, Martin Scorsese, and Stanley Kubrick. So, I felt like this is a zone in which I can tell stories."
