Shahid Kapoor’s and Kiara Advani’s film Kabir Singh has been the talk of the town ever since its trailer was unveiled. Now the film is doing a roaring business at the box office and has become the first film of Shahid to cross Rs 100 crore mark at the box office. The actor has received loads of accolades for his portrayal of a jilted lover but at the same time, he has received backlash from certain people who feel that the film is deeply misogynistic and lauds violent behaviour. Recently, Shahid opened up about the criticism on the film in an interview with an entertainment portal and clarified his stance.
Shahid was asked about the criticism that he and his film’s character has received, to this the actor said that he remains unfazed by the comments that people make about his films and focuses only on the bigger picture. He said, “I don't get affected by ek-dedh mahine ke liye ye jo comments aate hai; that is not important. Everything will find its meaning, once people will see it in totality. Jab aap shuru mai aate ho to aapke har performance pe sochte ho abhi log kya bolenge.( At the start of your career, you are bothered about what people will think about your performances.) I have been doing this for 15-16 years now. I have done about 30 films. For me, now it is about putting a body of work behind, so that when people see that, they see a variety of work. The larger picture is important.”
Kabir Singh is the official Hindi remake of Telugu super hit Arjun Reddy that starrer Vijay Deverakonda and Shalini Pandey in the lead. Both the films were helmed by director Sandeep Reddy Vanga. The film has already managed to mint Rs 104.25 crores at the box office and is running strong.
