During an interview with Dainik Bhaskar, Sandeep Reddy Vanga, without directly naming Kiran Rao, addressed how she criticised his films, while her ex-husband, Aamir Khan's main character in the film, Dil, had threatened the heroine and almost raped her. The director revealed how his assistant had showed him the article from a superstar's second ex-wife, where she stated that Baahubali and Kabir Singh promoted stalking. He said:

"Some people don’t understand what they are saying. One assistant director showed me the article from this superstar’s second ex-wife where she was saying that Baahubali and Kabir Singh promote misogyny, promote stalking. I think she doesn’t understand the difference between stalking and approaching."

Sandeep Reddy Vanga then slammed Aamir Khan's film Dil, which was released in 1990. Using harsh words, he stated that Aamir Khan almost attempted rape and then fell in love with her. He added that before attacking someone, you should check your surroundings. He was quoted as saying:

"I want to tell that woman that go and ask Aamir Khan about the song ‘Khambe jaisi khadi hai’, what was that? Then come back to me. If you remember Dil, he almost attempts rape, he makes her feel like she has done the wrong thing. And they fall in love after that. What was all that? I don’t understand why they attack like that before checking the surroundings."

When Ranbir Kapoor's proposal in the film, Animal irked the netizens

A video from the film Animal, wherein Ranbir Kapoor's character, Ranvijay, proposed to his ladylove, Geetanjali, played by Rashmika Mandanna, made rounds on the internet and received a lot of hate. In the scene, Ranbir Kapoor remarked, "Geetanjali you have a big pelvis." To which, Rashima replied, "You mean to say I am fat." Later, the character clarified that he is not calling her fat, but by saying 'you have a big pelvis' meant you can accommodate healthy babies. 

The film's director, Sandeep Reddy Vanga, justified his character's dialogue during an interview. He shared that it means that the boy sees the future with his love, and they can get married and have babies. He added that it was a 'compliment'. The interviewer further added that it turns out to be medieval thinking, and it doesn't happen anymore.

As soon as the video went viral, netizens flooded the comments session, expressing their disinterest. One user had written, "Such a disgusting movie .. that's all about violence and disrespect of a woman." Another commented, "New era of asking out a woman." Another one penned, "This guy has lost it." We also stumbled upon a comment which could be read as "This person /director should b banned or charged ... seriously he is sick person don't understand how did actors agreed to it."
