Kiran Rao directed the critically acclaimed film, Laapataa Ladies. Since its release, the film has been garnering all the positive reviews from critics as well as audiences. The film which is currently streaming on the OTT platform Netflix, has now outshined Sandeep Reddy Vanga-directed film, Animal, in terms of viewership. Read on for more details! 

Laapataa Ladies outshines Animal on Netflix

In terms of viewership, Laapataa Ladies has surpassed Animal in less than one month of its premiere on OTT. For the uninitiated, Animal started streaming on Netflix on January 26, 2024, whereas Laapataa Ladies was released on the same platform on April 26, 2024. With 13.8 million views, Kiran Rao's film has surpassed Sandeep Reddy Vanga's film, according to Binged. However, it has not yet crossed Hrithik Roshan's Fighter, which has received 14 million views. 

It is interesting to note that a few weeks ago, Sandeep slammed Kiran Rao's old comment in which she called out certain films for blurring the line between stalking and wooing, without naming Kabir Singh, directed by Sandeep.

However, in an interview with Quint, Kiran Rao said, “I have never commented on Mr Sandeep’s films because I have never seen them. I have often spoken on misogyny and the representation of women on screen. I have talked about it on various platforms at various times. But I have never taken the name of any film because it is not about the specific film. Why Mr Vanga has assumed that I was talking about his film you’ll have to ask him. I have never seen his film.”
