Shahid Kapoor is riding high on the success of Kabir Singh and why not because as we speak, Kabir Singh is going all strong at the box office, having zoomed past Rs 250 crores mark. Although Sandeep Vanga’s Kabir Singh is a remake of blockbuster Telugu film Arjun Reddy, fans have totally loved Kabir Singh starring Shahid Kapoor and Kiara Advani.

The film has been subject of controversies due to its misogynistic undertone and a few days back, director Sandeep Vanga came under fire when he said in an interview that it is okay for a man to hit a woman out of emotion. Soon after, Vanga came out to clarify that he was misquoted and that is not what he meant. Amidst all the controversies, Shahid Kapoor is a happy man since it is his career’s biggest hit and in an interview, he opened up about the fact that it was wifey Mira Rajput who convinced him to take up the role of Kabir Singh, which according to Shahid, is one of the most flawed characters that he has ever played.

In an interview, Shahid revealed that his wife Mira Rajput encouraged him to take up Kabir Singh. “She was always very optimistic and believed that this is a character I should have in my filmography. We had watched Arjun Reddy together and she loved the director's work and felt that the character had potential. And if we were able to get it right, it'd be a very special character in my life. So, Mira was very happy when she watched the film,” informed Shahid. In the film, Shahid plays a surgeon, who becomes an alcoholic and drug addict after the love of his life leaves him. Post the film crossed Rs 250 crores, Shahid penned an emotional note on social media thanking his fans for making the most flawed character of his life the most loved.  



Your love is so overwhelming words will always fall short. Thank you for understanding him forgiving him and loving him with all your heart. We all fall apart. And we all must strive to rise from our faults. To be better. To be wiser. To be kinder. He is flawed. So are we all. You didn’t judge him you experienced him. You understood him. I have never ever felt so thankful. The most flawed character I have ever played. Has become my most loved. Indeed indian cinema and the audience has come a long way. More power to brave choices. More power to you all for your maturity and humanness. You have given me wings to fly. To not only be burdened by the need to be loved to be a star but to have the courage to be hated in equal measure to be an actor. Here’s to cinema mirroring life. To protagonists who don’t have to be restricted by their goodness and can be human and imperfect. There is perfection in imperfection and that is the beauty and the challenge of this human life. Thank you. Again and again. You all are the heroes of this story.

Who cares??? its a HIT and his performance stood out, and is loved and appreciated by millions now !! He got lucky yes.. but this movie was out of an already superhit movie.. so it was bound to be a success.. but it is due to his performance skills, he is receiving all the recognition he deserves !! You cannot deny that, and cannot call it luck.. because he EARNED it !!!!

We all know she is not so great when it comes to using her brains.

Mira is Shahid’s lucky charm! Everything seems to have fallen into place since they got together...that’s true love for you.
