Kabir Singh was one of the most anticipated films of the year. Starring Shahid Kapoor and Kiara Advani the romantic drama follows the life of the titular character, an alcoholic surgeon who goes on a self-destructive path after his girlfriend Preeti is forced to marry someone else. Written and directed by Sandeep Vanga, the film is a remake of his Telugu film Arjun Reddy and emerged as the highest-grossing Bollywood film of 2019. However, it faced criticism for glamorising misogyny and toxic masculinity and fell into controversies.

In a recent chat with Bollywood Hungama, filmmaker Farah Khan opened up on controversial films and awards shows. She said, “Every person with a phone is a critic. On social media, random people are giving their critical analysis but it’s talking nothing about the film per se. There must be just one or two critics who evaluate a film like how was it shot, how was the direction, screenplay kaisa tha etc. I just feel that if your content is good and if people want to watch it, it will work. But it is harmful in some ways. Like I was talking to Shahid Kapoor. His film Kabir Singh has done so well. But because it got criticised so badly, I just feel that if he is going to win some award for it, then the organisers might have second thoughts looking at the barrage of criticism that the film got.”

When asked if criticism affects collections, Farah said, “But it matters to the person who made the movie. When you get a harsh review and when people are not willing to see the business of the film, forget its merit, the one who made it can get affected.”
