Mumbai: Bollywood star Kangana Ranaut has responded to Sandeep Reddy Vanga’s suggestion that he might cast her in his next film.
The director, who is known for making divisive movies such as Kabir Singh and Animal, had said he admired Kangana’s performances and would be open to working with her if the right part came along.
Kangana To Sandeep: ‘Don’t Ever Give Me Any Role’
Kangana reposted a clip from a recent interview in which Vanga praised her acting and said he wouldn’t object to collaborating – even though she had publicly criticized Animal movie earlier.
The Queen actress said, “Review and criticism are not the same, every kind of art should be reviewed and discussed, it is a normal thing. The way Sandeep ji showed respect towards me by smiling at my review, it can be said that he not only makes manly films, his attitude is also manly, thank you sir.”
She added about working with Sandeep Reddy Vanga in the post, “But please don’t ever give me any role otherwise your alpha male heroes will become feminist and then your films will also be beaten, you make blockbusters, the film industry needs you.”
Earlier, Kangana had criticized Sandeep’s film Animal on social media and called it “a project that encourages ‘woman-beating’”. However, the director seemed unworried by Kangana’s comments.
“I loved her performance in Queen and many other films,” he said. “So if she is giving a negative comment about Animal, I don’t mind. I don’t get angry also cause I have seen her work… I don’t feel bad.”

But the film has set several box office records for a Hindi movie – both domestic and overseas. It has made over Rs 900 crore globally so far this year – making it the third highest-earning Indian film of 2023.
