Kabir Singh is rewriting rules of the Bollywood’s Arena. It has done remarkable business with almost 100 Crores on the board. However, some people are describing Kabir Singh as the misogynistic titular character. Shahid Kapoor is Criticized for Misogynistic Character in KABIR SINGH as it is glorifying sexist and degenerate approach.
Kabir Singh is the story of a Doctor who becomes a Drug Addict after his girlfriend marries someone else. Singh is a ferocious and hot-tempered man. He is trying to control his life after Refusal from Girlfriend’s family. He objectifies women and threatens to rape them at knifepoint if they refuse to have sex with him.
Misogyny is not very common in Bollywood but it is also deeply rooted in the industry. Stalkers are often appreciated, toxic masculinity is normalized and even nepotism is justified. Heroine Lead role is quite rare to find. In fact, Female Actresses often appear in titillating dances songs of dance.
What People Think about the KABIR SINGH movie?
CBFC member Vani Tripathi Tikoo is not a fan. In a series of tweets, Vani has excoriated the film.
I'm serious about this thought that Misogyny is "Infectious" have been noticing the narrative around #KABIRSINGH past few days..What a terribly misogynistic and extremely violent film! Arjun Reddy was bad enough and now this remake! Am I surprised it's doing well …Well Well!

Indian Journalist Shobha De refuses to watch ‘Kabir Singh’ out of courtesy for her Admiration for Shahid Kapoor.
I refuse to watch 'Kabir Singh', much as I admire Shahid Kapoor. Stalking is stalking. No justification. Zero tolerance recommended.

Some have questioned Shahid Kapoor for taking up such a negative character.
& 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 https://t.co/UxUbWdOpAF

Indian Author Bhavna Aurora, calls out those Hypocrites who feel pleasure watching Sacred Games, and Game of Thrones is now Criticizing Kabir Singh.
People writing long form articles on Kabir Singh being a bad influence on society were addicted to Sacred Games, Mirzapur, and Game of Thrones just a few weeks ago.

There come the Hilarious Doctor vs Engineer Memes on Kabir Singh.
Good that Kabir Singh was a doctor. Had he been an engineer, neither he would have got a job nor a girl friend. #OverHeard

It’s a moment of concern that when will Bollywood realize that the Patriarchy and Misogynistic approach is not just in Kabir Singh but in the Whole Industry. So bashing Shahid Kapoor for the role of Kabir Singh is Foolishness. He portrayed the Role of Kabir in the most Epic Way.
