Renowned filmmaker Anurag Kashyap has addressed actor Abhay Deol's recent critique of their joint venture, Dev.D. Deol had previously accused Kashyap of "glorifying" the film's "toxic main character." In a recent interview, Kashyap conceded that the protagonist of Dev.D is indeed a "toxic misogynist," but defended his approach to character development. He also suggested that audiences have become excessively "woke" and need to introspect on their expectations from cinema.
