Taapsee Pannu takes dig at Sandeep Reddy Vanga in hate crime tweet

Reacting to the news of a Nagpur man smashing his girlfriend’s skull over her ‘character’, Taapsee Pannu got sarcastic about the Kabir Singh director’s comments

Published: 16th July 2019

Taapsee Pannu on Monday lay into Kabir Singh director Sandeep Reddy Vanga’s comments about violence being an ‘honest’ expression of love. 

In a cryptic tweet, Taapsee, reacting to a news article about a Nagpur man who smashed his girlfriend's skull over her ‘character’, wrote: 

In an earlier interview, Sandeep Reddy Vanga had defended the violent tendencies of his protagonist (played by Shahid Kapoor). “When you are deeply in love and deeply connected to a woman, and vice versa, there’s a lot of honesty in it. If you don’t have the liberty of slapping each other, then I don’t see anything there,” he had said. 

Discussing a scene from the film, the director had added: “If you can’t slap, and if you can’t touch your woman wherever you want, and if you can't slap and you can't kiss and you can't use cuss words, I don’t see emotion there.”

Meanwhile, Taapsee’s tweet did not amuse some social media users, who criticised her comment as inappropriate and elitist. Responding to her trolls, Taapsee wrote:

Kabir Singh was released on June 21. The film is a remake of Sandeep’s own 2017 Telugu hit, Arjun Reddy.

Taapsee Pannu’s upcoming releases are Mission Mangal and Saand Ki Aankh.
