In a recent interview, Animal director Sandeep Reddy Vanga responded to filmmaker Kiran Rao's comments on misogyny in Indian films, particularly addressing his own work. Vanga suggested that Rao, as the ex-wife of superstar Aamir Khan, should scrutinize Khan's films, citing examples like the song "Khambe Jaisi Khadi Hai" from Dil. Rao, however, clarified in an interview with Dainik Bhaskar that she has never criticized Vanga's films because she hasn't watched them. She emphasized that her discussions on misogyny focus on the broader issue rather than specific films.

Rao further explained in a conversation with Quint that she has consistently spoken about misogyny and the portrayal of women in films on various platforms. Dismissing Vanga's assumption that she was targeting his film, Rao stated, "I have never commented or taken the name of any of his films." She highlighted the need to address the broader issue of misogyny in the film industry.
