Kabir Singh director goes on to explain his statement after facing the wrath of internet trolls.

Shahid Kapoor's film Kabir Singh is all set to join RS 300 crore club soon as the film is enjoying commercial success throughout the country. The film director, Sandeep Reddy Vanga, however, has been receiving a lot of backlashes for his distasteful statement on love.

In detail, in a recent interview with Film Companion, the director was quoted: "When you are deeply in love and deeply connected to a woman (and vice versa), if you don’t have the liberty of slapping each other, then I don’t see anything there."


As many fans are enraged over his comment, Kabir Singh's director then went on to explain, said he was misquoted and what he truly meant is the liberty of expression between lovers. Sandeep Reddy Vanga also said that his statement was somehow overblown and distorted in the media.


"Go, watch it and enjoy. If you don't like the film [Kabir Singh], then fine. You took me completely wrong. It's not assault. When you're so close to each other, when you can't handle your worst thing with each other, and you don't have the liberty of showing your worst side... The worst thing is not like 'iss din daaru peeke aake maar rha hai'. It's about the liberty of the expression between a couple who is deeply connected. It works for a woman also and it works for a man also. I spoke for both the sides. But sadly, they are quoting in a very wrong way," Kabir Singh's director said.

Despite Kabir Singh has notched up mass success in the commercial term, the film didn't receive a nod from the critic, citing it's misleading people by glorifying misogyny as well as using violent toward women. In response, Sandeep said his film didn't not endorsing misogyny, nevertheless, he can't explain to everyone in the world.
