In Sandeep Reddy Vanga directed Kabir Singh, Shahid plays a heartbroken alcoholic and drug addict doctor. Kiara Advani essays the role of the girl he loves, who gets married to another man. The film was a remake of Telugu hit Arjun Reddy which was also directed by Sandeep Reddy Vanga.
Kabir Singh is this year’s biggest Bollywood hit so far with a box office collection of Rs 278 crore.
The film Kabir Singh also faced criticism for its hero-like portrayal of a flawed man. “The first responsibility that an actor has towards the audience is to give them an honest portrayal. I think that happens very rarely. Because of these kind of pressures, people are so careful that ‘if I do this people will like me, if I do this people won’t’. That’s manipulating the audience to like you. I don’t want to be that kind of an actor,” Shahid Kapoor told news agency PTI in an interview.
He further said, “My responsibility to the audience is to give them a good, honest performance and hopefully for them to understand why my character behaves the way he does, what his reasons are. It’s on them to decide themselves whether they agree or disagree with his behaviour. Cinema is meant to make you reflect on life.”
