The way Sandeep Ji showed respect towards me by smiling at my review, it can be said that he not only makes manly films, but his attitude is also manly, thank you, sir..But please don't ever give me any role otherwise your alpha male heroes will become feminists and then your films will also be beaten, you make blockbusters, the film industry needs you.."
समीक्षा और निंदा एक नहीं होते, हर तरह की कला की समीक्षा और चर्चा होनी चाहिए यह एक सामान्य बात है ।— Kangana Ranaut (@KanganaTeam) February 5, 2024
संदीप जी ने जैसे मेरी समीक्षा पे मुस्कुराते हुए मेरे प्रति आदर का भाव दिखाया, ये कहा जा सकता है की वो सिर्फ़ मर्दाना फ़िल्में ही नहीं बनाते, उनके तेवर भी मर्दाना हैं, धन्यवाद सर ?… https://t.co/qi2hINWYcu
Kangana had criticised Animal
Kangana had criticised Sandeep's film Animal on social media. She said it is the audience running to theatres to watch 'women beating films' and called the trend 'discouraging.'
Reposting a fan's tweet, she said, "Paid negativity for my films is overwhelming, I have been fighting hard so far but even audiences are encouraging women to beat films where they are treated like sex objects and asked to lick shoes. This is deeply discouraging for someone who has been dedicating her life to woman empowerment films, might shift her career in the coming years, and wants to give the best years of my life to something worthwhile."
The post came after her film Tejas tanked at the box office and also received mixed reviews from critics. While Animal is still roaring in theatres as well as on OTT.
