The biggest blockbuster of 2019, so far, is Shahid Kapoor and Kiara Advani starrer Kabir Singh. The film faced a lot of criticism from a section of the audience and film critics, who deemed it to be sexist and misogynist. Recently, Shahid was present at an event where he talked about the massive success of Kabir Singh.
When asked about the film, Shahid explained, "If you think cinema is an educational institution that you're taught what you should or should not to do, that's your choice. Cinema is meant to mirror life. It's about representing the truth. It's an adult film, for adults, who can distinguish between right and wrong. Are you telling me that Mr Bachchan is someone who taught people to be a thief? You know you're going to watch a movie right, it's fiction, right? I've seen situations like this in life. When a couple fights, if a third person views it, they'll have a different idea. Fundamentally, they're in love. I've seen independent women date simple boys, and vice versa. That's how life is, it's unpredictable. Why is there a problem? You choose to take away what you want from the film. That's what democracy is all about."
He further added, "We promoted the film for two months. If someone's bought a ticket, they probably wanted to see something in it. The film is about a flawed character. Preeti is a stronger character than Kabir. Kabir doesn't know how to handle himself. Every Kabir needs a Preeti in his life. No one brought up Baazigar, when SRK kills Shilpa Shetty. No one said anything about Ranbir Kapoor putting a commode seat on Sonam Kapoor's neck as a mangalsutra in Sanju. Sab Kabir Singh ke peeche kyun pade hain?"
