Additionally, the film’s success comes amid a verbal spat between Kiran Rao and Sandeep Reddy Vanga, the director of Animal. Rao clarified in an interview that her previous comments on misogyny and the portrayal of women in films were general and not directed at Vanga’s work specifically, as she had not seen his films. In response, Vanga criticized her remarks, suggesting a misunderstanding of his films’ intent and stating, “This is entirely wrong,” regarding the interpretation of his work as promoting negative themes.
