Sandeep Reddy Vanga's directorial 'Animal' is receiving polarising reactions for showing high-intensity violence and vulgarity. A section of netizens and a few celebs have also criticised the film. Lyricist and singer Swanand Kirkire was one of them who called out the Ranbir Kapoor starrer for ill-treatment of women, vulgarity, misogyny, etc. Kirkire in one of his tweets wrote that the glorious history of Indian cinema is being embarrassed.

Now, the official page of 'Animal' has taken a jibe at writer Swanand Kirkire, who expressed his displeasure over the film. The official page of 'Animal' taking to X platform (formerly known as Twitter) shared a newspaper clipping of Kirkire's statement with a tweet and also tagged him in the post.

The tweet read: “Do not let your knees fall ahead of your toes or cave in towards each other. Keep feet shoulder-width apart to maintain a good base of support for balance. Land softly on the balls of the feet to help absorb the force of the landing. Yes…. now it landed perfectly 😘''.

The 'Three Of Us' actor in one of his tweets wrote, ''But today after watching the movie Animal, I really felt pity for the women of today's generation. Now, a new man has been prepared for you, who is more scary, who does not respect you that much and who aims to subdue you, suppress you and feels proud of himself. When you, the girls of today's generation, were sitting in that cinema hall and applauding Rashmika, I in my mind paid tribute to every idea of ​​equality. I have come home desperate, dejected and weak!".

"Ranbir's dialogue in which he defines alpha male and says that those men who are not able to become alpha, become poets to get the pleasure of all women and start making promises of breaking the moon and stars. I am a poet! I do poetry to live! Is there a place for me? A film is making a lot of money and the glorious history of Indian cinema is being embarrassed. In my understanding, this film will determine the future of Indian cinema afresh, in a different, terrible and dangerous direction,'' he wrote further. 

Despite mixed reviews, 'Animal' is minting moolah at the box office. It is inching towards the Rs 300 crore club in India. 

The actioner also stars Anil Kapoor, Rashmika Mandanna, Bobby Deol, Triptii Dimri, Suresh Oberoi, Shakti Kapoor and Prem Chopra among others.
