As happy as can be for my big brother today who’s always been a shining example of a human being for me. Not a doubt in the world that you deserve the smashing success but it continues to baffle me how you were able to play one of the most complex, lost and damaged characters with such perfection while returning home to being the most centered, loving and responsible family man I know. Thank you for showing me what it means to be a responsible son, father, husband and brother always AND for knocking me out with your performance in and as #KabirSingh 🚬 You are 🔥🌪💎
However, the film is under fire on social media, with many viewers deeming it "highly misogynistic". Central Board of Film Certification member Vani Tripathi Tikoo also criticised Kabir Singh, calling it a "terribly misogynistic and extremely violent" film. She has also slammed Shahid for deciding to star in the movie.
Kabir Singh follows a young, successful surgeon, who turns to a life of drugs and alcohol after his college sweetheart marries another man. The film also stars Kamini Kaushal, Suresh Oberoi, Adil Hussain and Arjan Bajwa in supporting roles.
