Shahid Kapoor and Kiara Advani starrer Kabir Singh is still going strong at the box office even after completing 1 month of its theatrical run. Even after getting criticised by the reviewers, audiences are giving all the love to this Sandeep Vanga Reddy. Apart from the critics, many celebs too came out in open and criticised the film.

Amongst everyone, actress Taapsee Pannu recently tweeted her opinion on Kabir Singh and took a dig at it. She wrote, “Or maybe let’s just say they were madly in love with each other n this ‘act’ was to validate his TRUE love for her.” In another tweet she wrote, “Statutory warning: people with no sense of sarcasm kindly ignore me n my tweet. Thank you , it was nice not knowing you.”

The Mission Mangal actress recently spoke to Mumbai Mirror and opened about her views on Kabir Singh. She said, “Kabir Singh and Arjun Reddy are not the only films glorifying misogyny, there are several others too but not to this extent. That is one of the reasons why I do the kind of films I do, there should be a counter narrative too. I know I’ll never be able to match up to the numbers of this film but that won’t deter me. We are on the cusp of a change and I am not going to give up now.”

She also went on to talk about Kabir Singh being a flawed character. She feels that the problem is not showing a flawed character but glorifying it is. “The problem is not showing flawed characters… The problem is when you glorify them and make what they are doing seem heroic. This character is so revered that whatever he does is not just accepted, it is celebrated.”

Taapsee further also added, “She was probably not a female Kabir Singh but Manmarziyaan’s Rumi Bagga was a flawed character too and ended up losing her love and getting divorced. The same misogynist people who didn’t see a problem with Kabir, booed Rumi. We aren’t oblivious to the double standards of our society.”
