Actor Shahid Kapoor delivered his biggest hit in 2019 with Kabir Singh which was an official remake of Arjun Reddy. The film was a box office but it gained a lot of negative publicity due to this toxic plot. There were many who thought the movie was a little misogynistic. Though the movie was released in 2019, Kabir Singh is still being discussed among movie buffs. Now, talking about the movie, Shahid believes Kabir Singh was an ‘adult film’.

In a recent interview with Bombay Times, Shahid shared how it became a family film despite being edgy and aggressive. “Kabir Singh was technically an adult film, but the number of people who have liked it and watched it with their families is unbelievable. Somehow, it made it to the family space despite being edgy and aggressive,” said the actor.


During a candid conversation with Bollywood Bubble, Shahid Kapoor was asked if all the actors are targeted unnecessarily post the Kabir Singh controversy. The Jersey star added, “Anybody who can provide a platform can be targeted whether that’s an actor or a sports person, or someone who is very successful, there’s always that negative side to the position that you have. And it is very true for the actors and for our fraternity because it is very easy to get any kind of footage, so that does happen, sometimes it is necessary, sometimes it is fair. So, it depends from situation to situation, which one feels appropriate which one doesn’t but it is something that happens very often for sure.”
