Shahid Kapoor Kabir Singh attacked much flaks from critics, cinephiles, directors , singers for glorifying abusive behaviour and sado-masochism. Recently director Vikramaditya Motwane and singer Sona Mohapatra took a jibe on director Sandeep Reddy Vanga over his recent tweet, in which he called for brutal punishment to tackle violence against women.
Vanga’s tweet came after the recent horrific rape-murder of a Hyderabad vetenary doctor
Vanga had written, “FEAR is the only factor which can change things radically in a society and FEAR should be the new rule. Brutal sentence will set an example. Now every girl in the country needs a firm guarantee.I request @warangalpolice to come into action.”
Motwane responded to Vanga’s statement with an indirect reference to Kabir Singh. “Will that FEAR stop them from slapping her?” he asked.
Sona, who has always been vocal about calling out sexual abusers meanwhile, wrote, “Would also help if you did your job better.Stop making films where you glorify sexist behaviour, misogyny & violence against women. Films like #KabirSingh aka #ArjunReddy where you ride on male toxicity for commercial gain. Maybe use your ‘virtue signalling’ in your work?”
One of the points of criticism against Kabir Singh was that he physically assaulted his girlfriend and both the directot Vanga and Vijay Deverakonda justified the scenes as an act of love.
The burnt body of the doctor was discovered on Thursday night. After a preliminary probe, it was found that she was sexually assaulted as well.
Others who have commented on the incident are actors Akshay Kumar, Richa Chadha Farhan Akhtar, Salman Khan, Swara Bhaskar among others.
