It's pretty impressive that despite the film getting leaked online; its business has not been affected. This grand success of Kabir Singh is surely going to give a major push to Shahid Kapoor's career.
On a related note, the film has drawn criticism for the depiction of toxic masculinity as the lead character, a doctor, descends into self-destruction and alcoholism, following a heartbreak.
When director Sandeep Vanga was asked to react to the criticism, he was quoted as saying, "If you make it like girl-meets-boy story, then it becomes usual. It was deliberate to make the story unusual. It is about this character, who has a specific way of looking at a girl, a specific way of expressing his emotions and his love for her. It is about how his life changes suddenly due to love. Love does change things. I have tried to make the story, the character as real and simple as possible."
Kabir Singh hit the theatres on June 21 and it also cast Kiara Advani in the lead role.
