Shahid Kapoor and Kiara Advani‘s recent release ‘Kabir Singh’ has become one of the most successful films in recent times. While the film was received well by the audience, Kabir’s character from the film had been criticized by many.

During a recent interview with Bollywood Hungama, Shahid Kapoor was quizzed about the extreme criticism that the film was receiving for his aggressive character. The actor compared his film with Ranbir Kapoor‘s ‘Sanju’ (which was also criticized by the audience for whitewashing the image of Sanjay Dutt) .

Shahid Kapoor said, “There was this film ‘Sanju’ of 2018 and I loved the film because that is the headspace of the character. That is where he was. And therefore his behavior can not be constructed and restricted. He needs to do what he needs to do. And you can choose to say I hate this guy!”

The ‘Padmaavat’ actor, who believes in taking up challenges when it comes acting, further said that, “In one of the Instagram post I said, that actors have to be brave, to make choices. To play characters which are loved for their stardom and hated for their performances. If you need to be hated for that character, you must play that character. There is no rule that the character has to be the only villain of the film, he is a character. He could be the protagonist, he could be the antagonist, you can walk out saying that I hate this guy and I’ll take that as a compliment.”
