Siddhant Karnick, recently seen in Animal, has opened up about Ranbir Kapoor and Rashmika Mandanna's 'bra-strap scene' in the film.
Siddhant Karnick is currently riding high on the success of Animal. The actor played the role of Ranbir Kapoor's brother-in-law and Saloni Batra's husband in the film. While the Sandeep Reddy Vanga film is a box office hit, the movie has also received a lot of criticism. Animal has been called out for toxic masculinity and misogyny. Now, in an interview, Siddhant has come out in defense of Ranbir and Rashmika Mandanna's bra-strap scene in the movie.
Siddhant Karnick on Ranbir and Rashmika's bra-strap scene
In an interview with Bollywood Now, Siddhant Karnick said, "I understood the kinkiness Ranbir’s character was trying to show with the bra strap." The actor further mentioned there are terms called 'masochism' and 'sadism', which are used in s**ual orientation. Karnick believes it showed that Rashmika's character could 'masochist'. "She was agreeable to that kind of act," he added.
The actor added that as an audience, people will feel what is happening on the screen is wrong. However, "But, in cinema, it’s between those two characters and it is right for them. So why are we judging that? They are telling us about the characters and what the characters like, it is up to them," said Siddhant.
