Be it her film choices or smouldering hot look, Kiara Advani is constantly in the headlines. Last year, she was all over the news owing to her most controversial film, Kabir Singh. No film of Kiara created buzz like Kabir Singh did, and her character in the film, Preeti, became a hot topic of discussion. While some loved her character, others criticised her character for putting up with a toxic boyfriend, and going back to him in the name of love despite being slapped by him.
Kiara spoke about receiving backlash in a virtual appearance on Neha Dhupia's chat show, No Filter Neha, and opened up about the entire row.
Kiara On Her Character Preeti
While speaking to Neha, Kiara said that the final scene of Kabir Singh justified everything, and added, "For me, that scene showed her strength, she wasn't just going to just go back to the man she loved. She decided to raise a child on her own, she left, she left him, she left the man her parents forced her to marry."
Kiara Further Added..
"I just felt she was not the woman that maybe other people saw her to be till that interval. I felt unfortunate for those people who did have the comments of misogyny and all of that which of course there is a part of the character, but that's something that was always known to the audience when you see it in the promos also," averred the Good Newwz actress.
Kiara On The Controversial Slap Scene
Kiara also spoke about the 'slap scene', which made many viewers uncomfortable. She said, "Unfortunately, some people just made the slap, the whole movie about one slap. It was not about one slap. That's not something that I stand for. And, that's not something that I would ever stand for and that's not something Preeti stood for, either."
'Love Is Love At The End Of The Day'
While rooting for her character Preeti, Kiara said, "She doesn't go back to him. He comes finding her and even in that moment she doesn't want to see his face but they have a confrontation and that's what their climax scene, I think was 20 minutes long, where everything is discussed, argued and I guess, love is love at the end of the day. They both come back together."
Currently, Kiara is busy promoting her upcoming film, Laxmmi Bomb. The film also stars Akshay Kumar in the lead role, and is all set to release on November 9, 2020 on Disney+ Hotstar.
