However, it’s still being talked about, thanks to its plot that promotes toxic masculinity, as per a section of social media. Now, Shahid Kapoor himself has opened up on portraying a lover as flawed as Kabir Singh and stated that he does not endorse such behaviour in real-life.

During the Star Screen Awards 2020, Shahid Kapoor addressed all the debates and criticism surrounding his film by revealing that the makers, in no way, forced the viewers to believe that Kabir Singh is a good human being and he does only good things, he also called it a very ‘messed up’ character. “I don't think we have justified anything in Kabir Singh. We have maintained since the beginning that he is a very violent and messed up character. But he has a heart. And, I think it's important to acknowledge the fact that we've all got both light and dark inside us, otherwise, films will become candy floss, the things that don't exist,” asserted Shahid.
Kapoor added that if people want to solve any problem in society, they will first have to address it. As per him, if filmmakers don’t show bad or violent behaviour through their films, how will people come to know or talk about it?
Further, Rani Mukerji, too, was quizzed about all the controversies that Kabir Singh sparked. The Mardaani 2 actress, in a conversation with Pinkvilla, said how she has always been associated with films showing modern Indian women. Rani added that she promotes freedom of expression and how one can’t survive in the creative field if they don’t get that space. However, Rani staunchly believes that the actors should maintain a fine balance between ‘creative freedom and social responsibility’.
Mardaani 2 releases on December 13, 2019, stay glued to this space for the film’s review.
