Shahid Kapoor‘s ‘Kabir Singh’ had left the audience divided when it comes to the film’s portrayal of its problematic lead character. Shahid’s brother Ishaan Khatter too had a similar opinion as he recently said that he loved and hated Shahid in ‘Kabir Singh’. The ‘Dhadak’ star thinks it was more a cautionary tale for him.

On Neha Dhupia‘s ‘No Filter Neha’ show, Ishaan sharing his views on ‘Kabir Singh’, said, “I loved him and I hated him. I was compelled to know more about his story. I saw the character as a very flawed guy. I saw the character not as an example of somebody to learn from or live your life like. But I saw the character as somebody who is going through ups and downs, most of the downs created by himself and his own actions. It was more of a cautionary tale for me. This guy through his choices had led himself on a path of self destruction.

He also gave his view on the climax scene saying it was totally the director’s choice to have such an ending. “It was the director’s choice. It could have ended very differently. It could have ended in a very tragic way like Devdas. He chose hope over a tragedy,” he concluded.

Apart from Shahid, ‘Kabir Singh’ also starred Kiara Advani. Despite the wide criticism, the movie did exceptionally well at the box office.

Meanwhile, on the work front, Ishaan will be next seen in ‘Khaali Peeli’ opposite Ananya Pandey.
