Shahid Kapoor and Kiara Advani starrer ‘Kabir Singh’ hit the silver screens on last Friday(June 21). ‘Kabir Singh’ which is the Hindi remake of the hit Telugu film ‘Arjun Reddy’ (2017) went on to become the biggest opener of Shahid Kapoor’s career, even though it mostly garnered negative reviews from the critics.

While some section of the audience and the viewers are in awe of Shahid Kapoor’s terrific performance, others are bewildered by the way the film glorifies toxic masculinity and substance abuse. Singer Sona Mohapatra took to Twitter and not only slammed the film but also questioned Shahid Kapoor for doing the misogynist film.

Sona replying, to a tweet praising Shahid’s performance, posted by Rekha Sharma (chairman of  National Commission for Women), wrote how could she overlook the film’s misogynistic & patriarchal narrative.

You can read her tweet below:

Sharma later deleted her post in which she has praised Shahid. Later when television actor Nakuul Mehta, said that despite there being several problems and leaving the politics of the film aside, Shahid has done a brilliant job, Sona reverted to him as well. The singer questioned Shahid’s responsibility as an actor.

Here’s her another tweet questioning Shahid for doing such a film.

Earlier during the promotion of ‘Kabir Singh’, when Shahid was questioned about the flak ‘Arjun Reddy’ had received, the actor had said, “, “It’s a movie. It’s not real life. So, people should focus on the wrong things that happen in their life.”

While during the trailer launch of this film, Shahid had said that we all have come across characters like Kabir in real life. He even went on to add that how come people expect filmmakers to always tell the story of a wonderful person or always show the right thing in their films?

Well, going by Shahid’s various statements, we wonder what exactly he has to say about all the criticism his film is receiving now.
