Misogyny in Indian films has quite often been discussed. But it was the 2019 film Kabir Singh directed by Sandeep Reddy Vanga that drew heavy criticism.

Other scenes that made to the list include Salman Khan threatening Sonakshi Sinha in Dabangg, Naseeruddin Shah, and Satish Shah discussing how a woman deserves to be eve-teased, Shah Rukh Khan telling Madhuri Dixit about the duties of a wife among others.
