Kabir Singh which has been one of the Highest Grossers of this year has taken Shahid Kapoor’s career to the next level. Going by the reports, Shahid has been approached for Nani’s Jersey remake in Hindi, and reportedly he has asked for 35 crores as his fees! However, the movie received backlash from a chunk of society and the actor is opening all about it yet again.
In a recent interview with India Today, Shahid spoke about the backlash that the film received ever since the release and said, “It’s about representing the truth. It’s an adult film, for adults, who can distinguish between right and wrong. Are you telling me that Mr Bachchan is someone who taught people to be a thief? You know you’re going to watch a movie right, it’s fiction right? I’ve seen situations like this in life. When a couple fights, if a third person views it, they’ll have a different idea. Fundamentally, they’re in love. I’ve seen independent women date simple boys, and vice versa. That’s how life is, it’s unpredictable. Why is there a problem? You choose to take away what you want from the film. That’s what democracy is all about.”
He further added, “We promo-ed the film for two months. If someone’s bought a ticket, they probably wanted to see something in it. The film is about a flawed character. Preity (Kiara Advani) is a stronger character than Kabir. Kabir doesn’t know how to handle himself. Every Kabir needs a Preity in his life. No one brought up Baazigar, when SRK kills Shilpa Shetty. No one said anything about putting a commode seat on Sonam Kapoor’s neck in Sanju. Sab Kabir Singh ke peeche kyun pade hain?”
