“I have never offered any critique on Mr. Sandeep’s films as I haven’t watched them. My discussions have predominantly revolved around misogyny and the portrayal of women on screen, a topic I have addressed across various platforms on numerous occasions. However, I have refrained from referencing any particular film because my focus isn’t on individual works. Why Mr. Vanga assumed that I was targeting his film is a question best directed to him, as I have not seen it,” Rao conveyed to The Quint.


Regarding Reddy Vanga’s assertion that Aamir himself participated in misogynistic songs like ‘Khambe jaisi khadi hai’ in the past, Rao highlighted that her former husband was among the rare individuals who acknowledged and apologized for such actions. “Very few individuals are willing to retrospectively acknowledge and express regret for past problematic actions within their body of work,” she emphasized.

In response to what he perceived as criticism from Rao, Reddy Vanga suggested that she should redirect her attention towards Aamir Khan’s films.

Reddy Vanga highlighted a scene from the movie Dil, where Aamir Khan’s character intimidates a woman with violence, yet they ultimately develop romantic feelings. “I would advise that individual (Kiran Rao) to inquire about the song ‘Khambe jaisi khadi hai’ from Aamir Khan before returning to me,” Reddy Vanga conveyed to Dainik Bhaskar.
