When Kabir Singh opened to much criticism last month, director Sandeep Reddy Vanga addressed the controversy surrounding its “deeply problematic” and “misogynistic” protagonist, played by Shahid Kapoor. But Kapoor himself remained mum on the subject. Now, with a little distance, the actor is confronting the controversy. “I’m sure people must be wondering the film has become a blockbuster now so why would I care about what people say or think?”
As Kabir Singh completes one month in the theatres, Kapoor for the first time addresses the criticism in an interview with Bollywood Hungama.
