Career

After finishing college, Sandeep Reddy Vanga began his journey in the film industry. He apprenticed for the Telugu film “Manasu Maata Vinadhu” in 2005, spending 25 days at Rushikonda Beach, Vizag. While studying at AFTT, he took up a part-time job at Subway. He gained experience in Tollywood as an assistant director for movies like “Kedi” (2010) and as an associate director for “Malli Malli Idi Rani Roju” (2015). His debut as a director came with the Telugu film “Arjun Reddy” (2017), a project that replaced his initial script for “Sugar Factory.” Despite being made on a tight budget of ₹4-5 crores, the film raked in over ₹50 crores at the box office. However, it faced criticism for its portrayal of smoking, drug use, and intimate scenes, leading to clashes with the censor board.

A year later, Sandeep had a cameo in the Telugu biopic “Mahanati” (2018) and encountered controversy yet again, this time over kissing scenes and posters, which provoked strong reactions from political figures. He later directed the Hindi version of “Arjun Reddy,” titled “Kabir Singh” (2019), a film that garnered immense commercial success despite facing opposition and criticisms, with Sandeep publicly disapproving similar films.

In 2021, he announced “Animal,” a gangster film starring Ranbir Kapoor, and in 2023, he directed the Bollywood movie “Animal,” featuring Ranbir Kapoor, Bobby Deol, Anil Kapoor, and Rashmika Mandana. Sandeep served as the writer and editor for this project. Additionally, he announced his Telugu film “Spirit” starring Prabhas in October 2021.
