Sandeep Reddy Vanga's film 'Animal' which was released in theatres in December last year broke box office records but got extreme reactions from the audience and critics. Amid criticism, filmmaker Anurag Kashyap called Sandeep the most misunderstood, judged, and revealed filmmaker at the moment. Kashyap had also met Vanga in person earlier this year to congratulate him on the success of the Ranbir Kapoor-starrer. Now, in a new episode of his daughter Aaliyah Kahsya's podcast 'Young, Dumb and Anxious', Anurag was asked, "What in the world was the Sandeep Reddy Vanga post?' 


Aaliyah expressed her disappointment at her father promoting 'Animal' which she termed as "horrible and misogynistic". 


 Responding to Aaliyah, Anurag said, "I met him (Sandeep Reddy Vanga) and I liked him. I like the guy. I’ve had questions of my own and I wanted to talk to him about his film (Animal) and I invited him and I had a long five-hour conversation and I like the guy... I always believe in talking to people. I was cancelled after Dev D (2009) by a lot of people for making a 'misogynistic' film... I have often seen people isolating someone, attacking someone and that is not the way to be."


The director added, “This man (Sandeep), what you see is what he is. People may like Animal, they may not like Animal, but Animal is a major tectonic shift in the way films will be made. People will realise its impact in 5-10 years from now. Post Animal, every action movie looks fake. When you see, Bade Miyan Chote Miyan (Starring Akshay Kumar and Tiger Shroff), all those flips and fighting, it all looks fake because somehow the action in that film (Animal) and the use of music in that film had an impact, the technical details in the film had an impact on the audience. That will forever impact cinema.”

Anurag's praise for Sandeep: 

In January this year, Anurag shared photos of himself meeting Sandeep and wrote on Instagram, "Had a great evening with @sandeepreddy.vanga . The most misunderstood, judged and reviled filmmaker at the moment. To me he is the most honest, vulnerable and a lovely person. I wanted to meet the man and I had questions and he answered everything I asked of him about his film that I actually saw twice. Thank you for being patient and being yourself."

He further wrote, "This is a person you can actually confront and talk to. Please talk to him about the problems you have with the film. 40 days since I first saw Animal and 22 days since I saw it the second time. The biggest game changer of Hindi cinema in the longest time and a film whose impact (good or bad), can’t be denied. And the filmmaker who takes it all on his chin. Great evening spent with him."
