‘Stop making films glorifying sexism, misogyny and violence against women,’ say Sona Mohapatra and Vikramaditya Motwane to ‘Kabir Singh’ director Sandeep Reddy Vanga over his rape case comment
Filmmaker Vikramaditya Motwane has slammed Kabir Singh director Sandeep Reddy Vanga over his take on the 27-year-old woman veterinarian gangrape and murder case.
Sharing his views on the brutal incident, Vanga had tweeted, "Fear is the only factor which can change things radically in a society and fear should be the new rule. He requested the police force to make an example of the perpetrators."
This did not go down well with Twitterati including celebrities like Udaan director Motwane and singer Sona Mohapatra. Reacting to Vanga's tweet, Motwane wrote, "Will that FEAR stop them from slapping her?"
Sona called out Vanga, saying that he should stop making films which glorify sexist behaviour. "Would also help if you did your job better. Stop making films where you glorify sexist behaviour, misogyny and 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," she added. Last week, the 27-year-old veterinary doctor was gang raped and burnt to death allegedly by two truck drivers and two cleaners near a toll plaza on Outer Ring Road (ORR) at Shamshabad on the outskirts of Hyderabad.
