Sandeep Reddy Vanga Faces More Backlash After He Called Film Critics ‘Uneducated’

Recently, Sandeep Reddy Vanga appeared for an interview and spoke about his latest release ‘Animal’ and the backlash that it has been facing for allegedly glorifying misogyny, violence and assault towards women. In the interview, he took a direct dig at popular film critics Anupama Chopra, Rajeev Masand and Sucharita Tyagi after they gave a negative review of his film. He called them ‘illiterate’ and ‘uneducated’, people who do not understand filmmaking and a filmmaker’s craft.
