Shahid Kapoor and Kiara Advani starrer Kabir Singh has been having an extraordinary run at the box office. Directed by Sandeep Vanga Reddy, the film which is a remake of the hit Telugu film Arjun Reddy, has already crossed the Rs 200 crore mark within 13 days of its release. With the collections touching sky-high, Kabir Singh is likely to beat Vicky Kaushal starrer Uri: The Surgical Strike at the box office. However, the film has been mired in controversy for its misogynistic approach and for showcasing violence against women.  

Scores of netizens, celebs and film critics have slammed the movie for its sexist content. And one of them is soon to debut Malaal actress Sharmin Segal. Sanjay Leela Bhansali's niece Sharmin in a recent interview with News 18 was asked about her views on Kabir Singh. 

Comparing the character of Preeti played by Kiara Advani to her own character Aastha in Malaal, Sharmin said, "There is strength in Aastha's silence in Malaal on some level, which I did not see in Kabir Singh. The second she (Preeti in Kabir Singh) let him slap 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. I liked Kiara Advani in the film as an actor. She gave her performance. Shahid Kapoor exceeded his performance. I really liked Shahid in the movie but the story did not sit with me. It made me cringe at points."
