Shahid Kapoor and Kiara Advani starrer Kabir Singh has released and the film is getting mixed reviews from critics but the audience is in full of awe of Shahid Kapoor. Actually, one section of the critics are criticizing the film for portraying the women in bad limelight and also for showing Shahid a full druggist and still successful. Many celebrities are praising Shahid Kapoor for his remarkable performance in the film and one of them is Nakuul Mehta.

Television actor Nakuul Mehta who played the role of Shivaay Singh Oberoi in the show Ishaqbaaz has praised Shahid Kapoor for his brilliant performance. He tweeted, "There are 99 problems but @shahidkapoor ain't one. Leaving the politics of the film aside, it's a brilliant portrayal. In every frame and owned each of 'em. ๐Ÿ”ฅ#KabirSingh"


But it looks like that singer Sona Mahapatra was not happy with Nakuul's opinion about the film. She replied on Nakuul's tweet, “& how can we keep such deeply disturbing, dark & dangerous politics ‘aside’? Does the actor have no responsibility for choosing to play a part in a narrative that can set us back as a society? Is that all we have become? Creatures of ambition? #LetsTalk #India #KabirSingh'.”


Nakuul also responded to it and he said that the actor's work is to portray the character and artists are not those who judge the characters before playing. He responded, "Sure we must! Exactly the conversation which ensued post watching the film. It's something I ask myself too having done a fairly popular role which in parts did succumb to the narrative of patriarchy & machismo but eventually redeemed himself. A dialogue is a must. We must question it, discuss it. As an artist, must I judge the character I play? Maybe not. As a thinking individual? Yes. Can we separate the performance from the performer? Tough questions we must ask ourselves, given the times we are in."


On the other hand, Kabir Singh is doing good at the box office and it has collected around 40 crores in two opening days. While Sona Mahapatra recently was attacked for criticizing Salman Khan.
