Indian filmmaker Kiran Rao has advised Animal director Sandeep Reddy Vanga to talk to Aamir Khan about his concerns over misogyny in old movies of the Laal Singh Chaddha actor.

“I have never commented on Mr Sandeep’s films because I have never seen them,” she told The Quint in an interview. “I have often spoken on misogyny and the representation of women on screen.”

In the recent past, Vanga asked Rao to look at the films Aamir did in the past before speaking against his films. He had also wondered about the concept behind a line in one of Aamir’s old movies, Dil.

“I have talked about it on various platforms at various times. But I have never taken the name of any film because it is not about the specific film. Why Mr Vanga has assumed that I was talking about his film you’ll have to ask him. I have never seen his film,” Rao said.

The former wife of Khan, who is gearing up for the release of her film Laapataa Ladies, added that Aamir was one of the few people to apologise about the song that Vanga was talking about, ‘Khambe jaisi khadi hai’.

She said: “There are very few people who would look back at their body of work and apologise for doing something problematic in retrospect.”

She went on to add that Vanga should direct his questions to Aamir rather than ask her about his actions.

But the Animal movie’s page on X wrote in a post that they were not any assumptions while quoting an Indian media outlet news story.
