A film that managed to win the hearts of the audience but was in trouble with the critics is Shahid Kapoor and Kiara Advani starrer Kabir Singh. It has been over a month to the release date of the film and still, the young crowd is watching the film over and over again. Recently, as per the box office numbers, Kabir Singh managed to become the biggest blockbuster of 2019 and despite so much success, the film’s main character has been criticised time and again for encouraging toxic masculinity. 

In a recent chat with Hindustan Times, Shahid expressed his happiness on the success of the film and also spoke about the criticism coming his way. The 38-year-old actor mentioned that the success over the past five weeks feels surreal to him and is still sinking in. When Shahid was questioned about playing the flawed character of Kabir Singh, he mentioned that he has never been afraid of playing dark characters like Kabir or Tommy Singh, since in real life he can never be those guys. Also, Shahid tried to explain that films are now being viewed by the audience for what they are and that is why Kabir Singh worked.

The actor shared that just because a character is flawed doesn't mean that one didn’t enjoy the film. Shahid cited the example of a scene from Sanju to explain it.  Kabir Singh actor said, “There have been films in the recent past which had characters exhibiting similar traits but then no one really picked on them. To be candid, Sanju had a scene where the guy sitting in front of his wife and saying he has slept with 300 women. No one picked on it the way they went after Kabir Singh. And this is not to say that I didn’t enjoy Sanju. I thoroughly did, because I didn’t watch it to see how people should be, I watched it to see how the character’s life is. The fact that people loved Kabir Singh has just told me that people watch a film for what it is.”
