The Kabir Singh director branded most of the Bollywood critics as "Pseudo" and said that there would have been more criticism had the film collected around Rs. 80 crore.
Sandeep Reddy Vanga, the director of Telugu blockbuster Arjun Reddy as well as its Hindi remake Kabir Singh, has defended the film's portrayal of "intense romance" in a recent interview. Vanga said, "When you are deeply in love and deeply connected to a woman (and vice versa), if you don't have the liberty of slapping each other, then I don't see anything there". In Kabir Singh, Shahid Kapoor has played the role of the title character Kabir Singh, Kiara Advani is featured as Preeti, Suresh Oberoi will be playing the role of Shahid's father (Rajdheer Singh) and Adil Hussain as the dean of the college.

Sandeep Reddy dismissed Kabir Singh's criticism as "pseudo". "If you can't slap, if you can't touch your woman wherever you want, if you can't kiss, I don't see emotion there", said Sandeep Vanga. Don't think that was necessary. "What an arrogant sexist pr**k this man #SandeepReddyVanga is!" But despite causing the box-office storm that it did, the film has been lambasted by a large section of the audience and especially critics have critiqued the film in strong words for its misogyny and toxic masculinity. So don't tell me that physical violence is a form of love. "Someone gave the film just 2 stars but the audience have given it Rs 200 Cr", Sandeep Reddy said. The filmmakers say considering its business, Kabir Singh could join the coveted Rs 300-crore club. Incidentally, Sanju was produced by Vidhu Vinod Chopra, spouse of Anupama Chopra. Sucharita took to Twitter to react to Vanga's interview, and wrote, "In case anyone was still wondering if Kabir Singh was celebratory or cautionary, you don't gotta wonder no more".
