Fan asks Shahid Kapoor about not receiving any award for 'Kabir Singh'; actor quips 'on the contrary, can’t be thankful enough for the love'


Kabir Singh, which had Shahid Kapoor playing a role that goes through a self-destructive phase, was slammed by many for glorifying "toxic masculinity" and not being as good as its original Arjun Reddy, a Telugu film that had released in 2017. Still, it has raked in over Rs 260 crore at the box office. However, the actor did not win award for the film, which also starred Kiara Advani.

Now as the actor interacted with his fans on Twitter during the COVID-19 lockdown, a fan asked him, "do you feel disappointed that your Kabir Singh performance wasn't appreciated by the awards ceremonies because of the controversy surrounding it?" To which he quipped, "On the contrary. I can’t be thankful enough for the love you all have. I am because of you all."
