A remake of Sandeep Reddy Vanga’s Arjun Reddy, Kabir Singh, also starring Kiara Advani, has been criticised for its alleged glorification of misogyny and toxic masculinity. Reddy, who has also helmed the remake, kicked off fresh controversy after comments he made in an interview with Film Companion were brought to light.
While speaking with Anupama Chopra, he described film critics as “pseudo” and said, “When you question people’s belief system, they get angry. I think that’s what happened. It is not even a healthy criticism. It’s very pseudo. When you are deeply in love, deeply connected with the woman, there is a lot of honesty in it. If you don’t have that physical demonstration, if you don’t have the liberty of slapping each other, then I don’t see anything there.”
