To which she replied by saying, "It's a remake of a hit film so it was bound to do well." When further prodded about the misogynist tone of Kabir Singh, Tara pointed out, "As a woman, a human being and an artiste, I know have a certain social responsibility, but as artistes we also have a certain artistic freedom and the right to express as we please.
