"If Kabir hadn't slapped Preeti (Kiara Advani's character), would everything else that he did be okay? Because he slapped the girl, you feel that is unacceptable and that Kabir Singh is an unacceptable character. We want you to feel this is unacceptable, his behaviour has gone beyond control." He further explained, "Kabir Singh is the guy who the film is about and he is the guy who's the problem."

When asked why he had remained silent all this while, he explained that it was because he felt it wasn't a healthy atmosphere to discuss the movie. "The reason I didn't do an interview is because I felt everyone was very aggressive. And I didn't think it was healthy. I didn't want to come out attacking anybody. I didn't want to come out defending a film. I wanted to speak about a film like a film should be spoken about."

"It's interesting to see people, who make weekend conversation over it, seem to feel so much more of a sense of ownership on the film than those people who actually spent a year making it," he added.

Directed by Sandeep Vanga Reddy, and starring Shahid and Kiara Advani, Kabir Singh hit theatres in June, and has been the biggest commercial success of 2019 so far.
