Shahid Kapoor Questions Why Everyone Is After Kabir Singh
Kabir Singh has been termed the best film of Shahid Kapoor’s career despite all the criticism. The actor opened up about the film once again and questions everyone’s reaction
While Kabir Singh has been termed the best film of Shahid Kapoor’s career, it has been subjected to many harsh reviews and criticism. The Shahid Kapoor and Kiara Advani starrer went on to break box office records while simultaneously receiving flak for the longest time for its misogynistic nature and for promoting toxic masculinity. The film did go on to become a super hit where box office numbers are concerned and also received lots of mixed reviews. Many however, really liked the film and treated it like any other piece of cinema.
Weeks after the film’s release, Shahid Kapoor opened up about the film once again and went on to say that thinking cinema as an educational institution where one will teach what to do and what not to do, which is people's choice. He also highlighted how the movie is an adult film and that audiences can differentiate right from wrong. The actor went on to question many other things, and one of them also involved questioning if Mr Bachchan taught people to be a thief.
He further clarified his stance and said that when people are watching the film, they know it is fiction and he also added how he has seen such situations in life. Further, he talks about a different idea from a third person’s point of view when they see a couple fight but they are in love. He also made a valid point when he said that no one questioned the film Baazigar when Shah Rukh Khan killed Shilpa Shetty or even Sanju for that matter. Shahid Kapoor feels that everyone has only been after Kabir Singh.
While Shahid Kapoor continues flying high on his success from Kabir Singh, he is yet to announce his next project. Could it be that Shahid Kapoor is taking a short break from films after the huge success of his recent outing? Only time will tell. Until then, all we can do is keep our eyes peeled on his social media.
