Meanwhile, the director's recent comments on how he would handle criticism like the film promotes male chauvinism has garnered attention
"This is not arrogance, but I genuinely do not bother about pseudo-feminists and pseudo-sympathisers. There is not one place where I have showed women in a derogatory way. There is no bum or cleavage shot. I never asked my audience to look at the girl's body.", the film-maker has been quoted as saying by 123telugu.com.
Regarding Kabir Singh, the director also opened up that he agreed to do the remake only because Shahid Kapoor was ready to do the film.
