Tollywood star Vijay Deverakonda recently at an event of his upcoming film Dear Comrade, spoke about having no interest in watching Shahid Kapoor starrer Kabir Singh. Shahid Kapoor starrer Kabir Singh, which is an official remake of Vijay’s blockbuster Arjun Reddy, released on June 21st. Directed by Sandeep Reddy Vanga, the film grossed over Rs 220 crore mark at the box office. Speaking at a press interaction for his upcoming film Dear Comrade, Deverakonda was asked if he has any plans to watch Kabir Singh.

According to Cinema Express, to which Deverakonda replied, "Shahid has done that film, and he has gone through the character, and there is nothing for me to watch it again. I know the story, I have done that film, why will I watch again?" He further added, "I wanted the Hindi film to be a big hit because Sandeep is my man. But unexpectedly, it became a blockbuster. Done. No more discussion there." Arjun Reddy starred Shalini Pandey in the female lead.

Kabir Singh has become the highest-grossing Bollywood film of the year. However, a section of audience and critics bashed the film for glorifying toxic masculinity. During a recent interview with Anupama Chopra, Sandeep Vanga made controversial statements in defence of Kabir Singh’s criticism. He said, “If you can’t slap, if you can’t touch your woman wherever you want, if you can’t kiss, I don’t see emotion there.”
