The character Shahid Kapoor played in ‘Kabir Singh’ has received its fair share of flak because of his misogynistic traits. Taapsee Pannu has spoken about what she feels cinema should feel responsible for when making such movies.
“Kabir Singh and Arjun Reddy are not the only films glorifying misogyny, there are several others too but not to this extent. That is one of the reasons why I do the kind of films I do, there should be a counter narrative too. I know I’ll never be able to match up to the numbers of this film but that won’t deter me. We are on the cusp of a change and I am not going to give up now,” said the actress, in an interview with Mumbai Mirror.
She went on to say, “The problem is not showing flawed characters… The problem is when you glorify them and make what they are doing seem heroic. This character is so revered that whatever he does is not just accepted, it is celebrated”.
The actress will be seen next in ‘Saand Ki Aankh’ and ‘Mission Mangal’.
