Kareena Kapoor Says She Personally Doesn't Believe in Character Like Shahid Kapoor's Kabir Singh
Shahid Kapoor's Kabir Singh continues to remain a topic of hot debate. This time it was Kareena Kapoor Khan who said that she couldn't relate to the character.

Sandeep Vanga’s Kabir Singh may have earned big in Bollywood and appreciation for Shahid Kapoor’s acting, the controversies around it refuse to die down. While people loved the movie as a whole, the plot was not so flawless for the female character Preeti, played by Kiara Advani, who never raised a voice or even have dialogues at all.

As the defending still continues and makes headlines, Kareena Kapoor Khan pointed out to the outnumbering of people who appreciated the film which is ‘sad reality’. In an interview, she confessed for not having seen the film and that it doesn’t affect anything since the movie has already made Rs 300 crore at the box office. "It’s a double-edged sword. Because there are people who are actually going to watch it and have found something that they love. Otherwise, it is not possible for it to have done so well," she said.

Even though Kareena is happy about the buzz around the movie, she added, "If you ask me, I don’t personally believe in a character like that because that’s not me as a person. But at the end of the day, it’s a film and it has worked.

The actress appreciated that the problematic areas in the movie were called out people and their dissenting voice was heard, “But they clearly are outnumbered by the people who have loved the film. That’s the reality which is sad,” Kareena added.

A remake of Sandeep Vanga’s Telugu hit Arjun Reddy starring Vijay Deverkonda and Shalini Pandey, Kabir Singh drew controversies due to its ‘Romanticized depictions of toxic masculinity,’ which made a large part of the audience uncomfortable.

Kareena Kapoor will next be seen in Good Newwz co-starring Kiara Advani, Akshay Kumar and Diljit Dosanjh and is slated to release on December 27.
