People and media highly criticized Kabir Singh for allegedly promoting forced masculinity.
Shahid Kapoor had defended Kabir Singh in an interview. Speaking to BollywoodHungama, Shahid said:
“There is only one problem with Kabir Singh – his anger management. Whether it is his love, his dog, the bai; whenever he loses his temper, he messes up. In the first scene itself in the film, the dad says your brother is zero.”
“If Kabir hadn’t slapped Preeti (Kiara’s character), would everything else that he did be okay? Because he slapped the girl, you feel that is unacceptable and that Kabir Singh is an unacceptable character. We want you to feel this is unacceptable; his behaviour has gone beyond control,” he added.
Shahid Defended Kabir Singh
The 38-year-old actor also explained the concept of hero and villain does not apply on the movie: “Kabir Singh is the guy who the film is about, and he is the guy ‘who’s the problem’- the ‘protagonist’ and ‘antagonist’ of the movie,” he added.
He also took upon the allegations of misogyny associated with the film. He said, “This word, misogyny was often used for the film. Misogyny, I think, means prejudice towards women, but Kabir Singh had a problem with everyone. He had a problem with his father, his brother, and he abuses everyone. He has a problem with his friends, his principal; just everyone. How does he have a problem towards women? I felt he was misbehaving with everyone.”
Much like Sandeep, Shahid picked the example of Ranbir Kapoor’s Sanju and said:
“I thought why people are so aggressive. I saw the picture Sanju, and I loved the film. He tells a random interviewer that he slept with 310 girls and did not remember the rest. Actors have to be brave to choose a character, to be loved for the stardom and hated for the character.”
The film directed by Sandeep Reddy Vanga was made on a budget of approx. Rs. 68 crore and collected Rs. 275 crore at the Box-Office. Kabir Singh enjoys 7.5/10 on IMDb and will be streaming on Netflix from 19th September 2019.
