Producer Reveals Sandeep Vanga Is 'Not Okay' With Memes

Ranbir Kapoor's film "Animal," which earned him a Filmfare award earlier this year, continues to make headlines months after its theatrical release.

In a recent interview, the movie's producer, Bhushan Kumar, discussed the backlash the Sandeep Reddy Vanga directorial faced and revealed that the director dislikes memes about the film.

“Sometimes Sandeep Reddy Vanga is not okay with the memes on the film. He replies too much, and I keep explaining to him that he should not bother—it is benefiting our film only. All said and done, the film has become a cult hit. Everyone is waiting for part 2, we've done ?900 crores in business worldwide, so if people want to talk, let them talk; it doesn't bother us,” Bhushan Kumar told Zoom Entertainment.

Regarding the film still being the talk of the town, the producer said, “So many debates keep happening over the film. Even today, I see someone talking about it. It's good for us. The moment people resume talking about it or making jokes, it picks up on Netflix again. It comes back in the top 10 list!”

Recently, Manoj Bajpayee, who is gearing up for his next release "Bhaiyya Ji," shared his opinion on the chatter around "Animal."

Manoj Bajpayee told Pinkvilla, "I am very clear. If many people disagree or don't like a film, what's wrong with that? The film is released, does its business, and moves on. The money goes into the producer's pocket; let them take it—they invested in the movie."

Manoj Bajpayee believes that spreading negative words about a movie harms its business.

He told Pinkvilla, "If you don't want to watch it, then don't. If you disagree with something, it's better not to watch it, but don't create trouble for the movie. You will only encourage a bad notion by doing so. What if others hinder your work in the same way? There should be open discourse without calls for bans or protests."
