Since ‘Kabir Singh’ has released, it has been slammed by many for its toxic masculinity. It has done   surprisingly well at the box office. Recently, ‘Malaal’ star Sharmin Segal stated that ‘Kabir Singh made her cringe and that she didn’t connect with most parts of the movie.

She clearly spoke out her mind about the movie. According to News18, she said that, “I really liked Shahid in the movie but the story did not sit with me. It made me cringe at points.

Sharmin has made her debut into Bollywood with Sanjay Leela Bansali’s ‘Malaal’. She continued, “The second she (Kiara Advani’s character Preeti) let him slap her… (and after that she has begged him to not leave her). That was the moment when I was like why, why… With the amount of stuff that is going on in our country, where women are trying to get empowered…

Clearly, the questionable nature of ‘Kabir Singh’ has been the talk of the town. It didn’t get any appreciation from Sharmin as well.

She also compared Kiara’s character to her own character in ‘Malaal’, and said, “There is strength in Aastha’s silence in ‘Malaal’ on some level, which I did not see in Kabir Singh.
