Shahid Kapoor and Kiara Advani starrer Kabir Singh hit the theatres yesterday. While the film continues to receive positive response, Bollywood and Television actors have been taken to social media to praise the duo’s performance. So much so that it has now started a debate on Twitter. It all happened when, TV actor Nakuul Mehta took to Twitter and praised Shahid Kapoor for his acting chops in the film.

The conversation started when Nakuul Mehta tweeted, “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”

Re-Tweeting to Mehta’s tweet, Sona 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? #LetsTalk  #India #KabirSingh”

Replying to Sona, Nakuul 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 judge 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.”

Meanwhile, Kabir Singh had a good opening at the box-office on its first day. Shahid Kapoor and Kiara Advani starrer collected Rs 20 plus Cr on Day 1.
