Twitter war: Nakuul Mehta and Sona Mohapatra gets into an argument on Shahid Kapoor’s portrayal in ‘Kabir Singh’


Shahid Kapoor and Kiara Advani starrer Kabir Singh released yesterday and the film has managed to garner a positive response from its audience. Lots of people have taken to social media to praise the duo’s performance including TV actor Nakuul Mehta.

Nakuul, who rose to fame with serial Ishqbaaz recently took to Twitter and praised Shahid’s performance. He said, “There are 99 problems but @shahidkapoor ain't one. Leaving the politics of the film aside, it's a brilliant portrayal. In every frame and owned each of 'em. #KabirSingh”. (sic)

But seems like, singer Sona Mohapatra was not happy with Nakuul’s opinion about the film. She retweeted and wrote, “& how can we keep such deeply disturbing, dark & dangerous politics ‘aside’? Does the actor have no responsibility for choosing to play a part in a narrative that can set us back as a society? Is that all we have become? Creatures of ambition? #LetsTalk #India #KabirSingh'.” (sic)

To this, Nakuul wrote, "Sure we must! Exactly the conversation which ensued post watching the film. It's something I ask myself too having done a fairly popular role which in parts did succumb to the narrative of patriarchy & machismo but eventually redeemed himself. A dialogue is a must. We must question it, discuss it. As an artist, must I judge the character I play? Maybe not. As a thinking individual? Yes. Can we separate the performance from the performer? Tough questions we must ask ourselves, given the times we are in." (sic)

Take a look at their conversations:

Meanwhile, Kabir Singh has garnered a good opening at the box-office on its first day. It has collected Rs 20 plus crore on its first day itself.
