Anurag Kashyap, on Saturday, shared a picture from his meeting with Animal director Sandeep Reddy Vanga and called him the “most misunderstood, judged and reviled” filmmaker. He said, for him, Sandeep is the “most honest, vulnerable and a lovely human being.”
Sharing a few pictures with Sandeep on Instagram, Anurag wrote, “Had a great evening with @sandeepreddy.vanga. The most misunderstood, judged and reviled filmmaker at the moment. To me, he is the most honest, vulnerable and a lovely human being.”
He also added that he was looking forward to meeting Sandeep ever since he watched his latest directorial, Ranbir Kapoor’s Animal and wanted to ask him questions about the film. He confessed that he watched one of the most controversial movies of 2023 twice.
“And I really don’t give a f””” what anyone thinks of him or his film. I wanted to meet the man and I had questions and he answered everything I asked of him about his film that I actually saw twice. Thank you for being patient and being yourself. 40’days since I first saw ANIMAL and 22 days since I saw it the second time. The biggest game changer of Hindi cinema in the longest time and a film whose impact (good or bad) can’t be denied. And the filmmaker who takes it all on his chin. Great evening spent with him,” added Kashyap.
Animal stars Ranbir, Rashmika Mandanna, Tripti Dimri, Anil Kapoor and Bobby Deol. The film received polarising reviews, with many describing it as misogynistic and violent. However, it has emerged as one of the most successful films of 2023 as it has crossed the Rs 900 crore mark at the box office globally.
