Telugu blockbuster Arjun Reddy starring Vijay Deverakonda was remade in Hindi as Kabir Singh. The Hindi version of the film starring Shahid Kapoor in the lead role released this year and it opened to a massive response from the audience. However, a section of audience and critics bashed the film for glorifying misogyny. Recently, during an interview with Film Companion, actress Parvathy spoke her mind out and bashed the film in front of Vijay Deverakonda. The round table interview featured Parvathy, Vijay Sethupathi, Vijay Deverakonda, Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh, Alia Bhatt, Manoj Bajpayee and Ayushmann Khurrana.

The celebrities from Hindi and South Indian film industry spoke on various subjects and one of the hot topic discussion was about not doing the films that don't glorify misogyny. During the discussion, Parvathy without mincing her words said, "It is a very fine line reflecting what's there in the society, showing what misogyny is and glorifying it. It's entirely up to the writer and director how they glorify it. When a man is being misogynistic and is being...you know...abusive, and you show that in a way that incites applause in the audience, then that's glorification. And at the same time, you make the audience think whether he's done the right thing or not, then there you are collaborating with the audience. There, there is a cinema, it's a dialogue." 

She continued, "But the other one is almost spoonfeeding you that this is okay. I remember sitting through such a film in theatre as a teenager and squirming, but at the same time, everyone else is clapping. I was very confused. ‘Is it normal? Is it okay?’ And then it reflected in my personal life too." 

The discussion then went on to Manoj Bajpayee, who said that how he plays the character for himself. Adding to this, Alia Bhatt said that she would love to play a dark character like Joker but wouldn't like to be the same person in real life. 

Soon Parvathy brought up Arjun Reddy and compared it with Kabir Singh and Hollywood film Joker. She stated, “Arjun Reddy’ and Kabir Singh had the visual grammar of glorification, Joker did not. At no point did I look at the character Joaquin (Phoenix) played and think ‘Arre yaar, I totally agree with you. You must kill everyone.'" 

"Whereas, if you're saying that there's no passion in a relationship without slapping each other – and I see the comments on YouTube, where people are engaging and resonating with that – you are engaging with the wrong thing in a massive, mob-like manner, where you're inciting violence," she added. 

Parvathy further said that how she can't stop any filmmaker to make such film but can stop herself from not being a part of it. 

Vijay Deverakonda also responded to Parvathy's point of view on his film and said, "It's your family, parenting, schooling, it's multiple things that lead a person to behave in a certain way."

The Dear Comrade star expressed how he liked the character and wanted to play without justifying it to himself.
