Nakuul Mehta has always been the first to voice out his opinion about anything that he deems fit/incorrect. And while he seemed to have nice words to say about the film Kabir Singh, Sona Mohapatra couldn't seem to agree.

Shahid Kapoor and Kiara Advani starrer Kabir Singh has been all over the news. While the film has garnered a lot of appreciation and has also become Shahid's biggest opener so far, there are many who do not like how the movie glorifies so many things that aren't right. While Twitter is raging in anger with some praising Shahid for his performance, Nakuul Mehta seemed to be in awe of the film and wrote on Twitter, "There are 99 problems but @shahidkapoor ain't one. Leaving the politics of the film aside, it's a brilliant portrayal. In every frame and owned each of 'em. #KabirSingh"

However, this did not seem to go well with Sona Mohapatra, someone who has always been vocal about what she feels is not correct. She wrote, "& how can we keep such deeply disturbing , dark & dangerous politics ‘aside’? Does the actor have no responsibility for choosing to play a part in a narrative that can set us back as a society? Is that all we have become? Creatures of ambition?" To this, Nakuul further elaborated and wrote, "Sure we must! Exactly the conversation which ensued post watching the film. It's something I ask myself too having done a fairly popular role which in parts did succumb to the narrative of patriarchy & machismo but eventually redeemed himself. A dialogue is a must. We must question it, discuss it. As an artist, must I judje the character I play? Maybe not. As a thinking individual? Yes. Can we seperate the performance from the performer? Tough questions we must ask ourselves, given the times we are in."

This guy writes well

ultimately, shahid was playing a role. he is an actor, its his job. just like the villains of old movies like ranjeet and prem chopra and amrish puri played roles, they weren't like that in real life. movie making is story telling. people need to separate from real life. sona m just HAS to insert herself.

No, he is not in a full time job in a corporate earning hand to mouth hat he has to do what he is asked to. He made a choice here.

Shahid kapoor plays a very disturbing and abusive character and glorifies him. And this is a real life character not some Aladdin or Ali baba!

Irritating guy!

Hypocrite Bollywood thinks movies like pink, toilet and article 15 create change but the Kabir Singh does not!

Why do intelligent ppl watch such shitty movies in a hall and then criticize them. The trailer gave it away. Toxic movie written all over it.
