Kabir Singh Director Sandeep Reddy Vanga Says His Film Never Supported Murder
Kabir Singh director Sandeep Reddy Vanga was asked to react to a news of an obsessed person killing a flight attendant.

There have been a lot of talks around Shahid Kapoor’s violent behavior in recently released Kabir Singh. Some believed that Kabir Singh, as a film, supports abusive behavior against women in the name of love.

Recently, a news about a Tik Tok user from Uttar Pradesh’s Bijnor surfaced who was accused of stalking and killing a flight attendant. It was said that he even posted a dialogue from Kabir Singh on Tik Tok.

Reacting to the news, director of the film, Sandeep Reddy Vanga told Mid-Day, "I feel sorry for the girl and her family. It is unfortunate that people have lost their lives. As filmmakers, we are responsible for our craft and need to consider the repercussions, but never have my films (endorsed) killing anyone. Kabir Singh or even Arjun Reddy (the Telugu original) never (supported) murder."

He added, "The man in question seems to have some psychological issue. Such people often look up to Bollywood celebrities, sportspersons or politicians. If you see Shahid's character in the film, he is a self-destructive person who is harming himself more than anyone else."

However, contrary to the criticism it received on social forums, Kabir Singh went on to garner huge bucks at the box office. The film is, so far, the highest grossing film of 2019.
