Mumbai: "Udaan" director Vikramaditya Motwane has recently slammed "Kabir Singh" director Sandeep Reddy Vanga for his opinion over the brutal Hyderabad rape-murder case. Vanga, on Sunday, tweeted about the inhumane rape and murder case happened in Hyderabad.

"FEAR is the only factor which can change things radically in a society and FEAR should be the new rule". In his tweet on the Hyderabad affair, the filmmaker said that these rapists and murderers should be afraid of the law for which a brutal sentence should be imposed on the four defendants. Now every girl in the country needs a firm guarantee. "I inquire of @warangalpolice to come into action".

For the uninitiated, "Kabir Singh'was criticised by many for the glorifying toxic masculinity in the film". But seems like this hasn't gone down well with Vikramaditya Motwane as Motwane was quick to slam the Kabir Singh director for glorifying misogyny and patriarchy in his film.

Referring to that film and the scene where the protagonist slaps his girlfriend, Motwane replied to Vanga's tweet saying, "Will that FEAR stop them from slapping her?"

A lot of tweets are being made connecting such crimes against women with films like Kabir Singh.

Sandeep Reddy Vanga took to Twitter to express his distress. "He has misled the youth especially the underprivileged, d morally corrupt fellow now instigating to encounter the culprits", wrote one other.

On Thursday morning, 28 November 2019, the heavily burned body of Priyanka Reddy, a veterinary doctor, was found dumped under Chatanpalli bridge in Shadnagar, Hyderabad. The horrendous crime has but once more raised questions on the security of girls within the nation.
