During a recent media interaction, Sandeep Vanga in an interview with The Hindu said, "I did not face much criticism for Arjun Reddy, but it was different for Kabir Singh. I don't want to name anyone but I saw a few people debating about Kabir Singh to get publicity before the release of their own films. A leading producer-director said he was scared to admit liking Kabir Singh. People acted as though I had made a film along the lines of the French film Irreversible. That film left me disturbed for days, though I could also see the artistic side of it."
