Sandeep Reddy Vanga takes a dig at Shah Rukh Khan's comment.
We know that December 2023 was a great month for Bollywood lovers. Sandeep Reddy Vanga’s directorial Animal, superstar Shah Rukh Khan starrer Dunki and Vicky Kaushal starrer Sam Bahadur emerged as great theatrical successes and minted hundreds of crores at the box-office in India and globally. While the films amplified the growth of Bollywood industry, a recent news report suggests that all is not well between Sandeep Reddy Vanga and Shah Rukh Khan.
Recently at an event held by CNN – News 18, Shah Rukh Khan expressed that he is one of those guys who is forever hopeful and loves to communicate happy stories. “The heroes I play do good things, they give hope and happiness. If I play a bad guy, I make sure he suffers a lot, he dies a dog’s death because I believe goodness begets goodness. And I believe badness deserves a kick in the backside,” he had said. Wrapping up the conversation, he said he loves to play only honest roles that give people the courage to dream.
In view of this development, Sandeep Reddy Vanga took a dig at Shah Rukh Khan and told journalist Siddharth Kannan in an interview about his perspective towards ‘heroes’. “People don’t understand what glorification means. They expect the hero to give a lecture in the climax, where he admits to all his mistakes, they expect him to die a dog’s death,” Sandeep said.
The conversation between Sandeep and Sidharth is now trending online. Multiple social media users expressed that Sandeep is feeling overconfident after the success of Animal. “Sandeep must know that SRK has delivered much more valuable blockbusters in the past,” wrote an X user. Another one said, “First he slammed Javed Akhtar, then he wants to work with Kangana Ranaut and now he spoke about SRK. Sandeep has gone crazy.”
Meanwhile, if you wish to watch Animal, you can watch it anytime on Netflix.
