Sandeep Reddy Vanga Facts

  1. Sandeep’s older brother, Pranay Reddy Vanga, had served as a producer on his directorial debut film Arjun Reddy. Sandeep also doubled up as the narrator of the film.
  2. Sandeep’s first work in the film industry was as an apprentice for the 2005 romantic Telugu-language film Manasu Maata Vinadhu. He also worked as an assistant director for the 2010 action film Kedi and as an associate director for the 2015 romantic drama film Malli Malli Idi Rani Roju.
  3. He had meant for a script titled Sugar Factory to be his feature film directorial debut but shelved its writing process midway and began writing the script for Arjun Reddy in 2013.
  4. The writing work for Arjun Reddy was completed within a year and the script found a producer as well. However, the shooting got delayed as the actor chosen for the male lead had several films lined up in his queue.
  5. The film and its subsequent Hindi remake ran into trouble for their depiction of smoking, drug abuse, domestic violence, and apparent misogyny, with Sandeep defending his films at every occasion stating that the criticism had been unreasonable and over the top.
  6. For Arjun Reddy, he won the “Best Debut Director” award at the 2018 South Indian International Movie Awards.
  7. Sandeep has also made his acting debut with a cameo appearance in the 2018 bilingual biographical film Mahanati.
  8. In October 2019, Sandeep faced further backlash after a notorious TikTok user killed 3 people, including an air-hostess he was obsessed with and then committed suicide. It was alleged that the culprit was influenced by Sandeep’s films Kabir Singh and Arjun Reddy. Sandeep expressed regret over the incident but defended his films stating that the protagonists of his films were self-destructive rather than being violent towards others and that his films never endorsed killing.
