Animal, directed by Sandeep Reddy Vanga, has created an uproar on the internet. Following the release of Ranbir Kapoor-led movie, the film has obliterated the box office. However, the reactions to the film, the allegedly misogynistic content and the toxic behaviour have created a divide among the viewers. Animal stars Anil Kapoor, Bobby Deol, Rashmika Mandanna, and Triptii Dimri. But filmmaker Anurag Kashyap has a different approach to the film.Anurag Kashyap claims Animal ‘galvanized’ more feminists in India: “It has created more discussion around misogyny than any other film”
In a recent interaction with OTT Play, Anurag Kashyap talked about the massive success of the film at the box office and said, “You cannot force responsibility on anyone. People take responsibility for themselves or they don’t. How many people went and watched a film that you considered to be feminist? Only a handful of people watch them and underline if it was a real feminist film or a pseudo-feminist film.”
Kashyap also said that this film has at least started a nationwide conversation. “A film like Animal has galvanized more feminists in this country than any other feminist film. It has created more discussion around misogyny than any other film. So it is doing something good. You need a provocateur in a society for people to understand. More people were taught feminism because of Animal and the discussions around it. Why are you scared of a provocateur? We are educated and learned people. Why are we afraid of someone who provokes us? I think being provoked is a good thing. I have always tried to make films to make people uncomfortable as a filmmaker. When I made Ugly, I wanted people to go back and not sleep that night,” added Anurag.
Meanwhile, Anurag Kashyap recently directed Kennedy starring Sunny Leone and Rahul Bhat. The film had its premiere at Cannes Film Festival 2023.
