Kabir Singh Controversy: Kiara Advani Finally Shares Her Thoughts

Remember when Shahid Kapoor delivered a power-packed performance in Arjun Reddy Hindi remake, Kabir Singh? The backlash Shahid and Kiara Advani starrer faced was massive, given its questionable content to romanticise violence. The director of the film Sandeep Vanga Reddy defended the film, so did Shahid Kapoor. And now the female lead of the film, Kiara Advani, who essayed tight-lipped Preeti in Kabir Singh has opened up about the criticism.

“It’s the antithesis of Preeti (Kiara’s character in Kabir Singh). The film (Guilty) opened my eyes (towards abuse). It brought me love that was so contagious that I am further motivated to go to work now,” the actor told Mid-Day. “I am an actor, and am hence not always like the characters I play. This was a love story between two dysfunctional people, so, I didn’t judge it. I am glad that a dialogue ensued. We all can differentiate right from wrong. But the film mirrors brutal realities,” she told the daily.

“Everyone is entitled to their opinion. Personally, for me, it will be a film which will be special to me. The character was obviously very different from what I am. Getting into the debate of what is right or wrong, I don’t know… I wouldn’t want to enter that position. Everyone has said what they wanted to. The movie received feedback which was both overwhelming and strong. I think it started a conversation,” she told Pinkvilla.

“I couldn’t let Kiara’s thought cloud Preeti. I played her as a character and detached. As an actor, that was my process. It is a perspective of the director. Each of us was aware of how is he telling the story and we believed in it. Maybe if someone else made it, he or she would do it differently, but at the end of the day, everything is fictional. No one is asking you to be like Preeti or Kabir. They are extremely flawed characters, I think it is the love story which everyone related to. At the end of the day, love is love,” she added.
