Actors Parvathy and Vijay Deverakonda were part of Film Companion’s recently conducted round table, on the 100 Greatest Performances of the Decade.

During the discussion, Parvathy called out the film Arjun Reddy (which starred Vijay Deverakonda) and its Hindi remake Kabir Singh for promoting toxic masculinity and abusive relationships. She also talked about why comparing it to Todd Phillip’s Joker was inaccurate. 

And naturally, Twitterati was in love with the point she made, and the way she made it. 

And now actor Vijay Deverakonda has responded to how people have reacted to her statements on social media. 

Normally, I am very understanding. I give people the benefit of doubt. I saw that there was a genuine angst and genuine intention behind these questions. But these people don’t know what they are talking about. I feel they are very misplaced. I didn’t mind the question. I love Parvathy. I admire her work. What irritates me is social media and media ‘hadavidi‘. People go nuts. They don’t know what they are talking about.

Parvathy is yet to comment on the positive response she has received on social media.
