i liked how ananya expressed that she didn’t like kabir singh/arjun reddy for the politics of it without saying it explicitly. vijay spoke absolute gibberish as expected and she made her point while still being diplomatic both karan and vijay did a double take. she’s clever

Ananya might not be a great actor but to sit with a South movie actor and tell him how his problematic view about Arjun Reddy takes a lot of guts. You have my respect. And fuck Vijay, such a fucking misogynist.

Ananya Pandeys reply on Arjun Reddy is full respect and to say that in front of Arjun Reddy ( Vijay Deverkonda) must have taken some courage. Atta Girl! Great! 🙌
PS I crushed on Arjun Reddy in School but I knew girls should stay far away from toxic boys like him.
