During the interview, Shahid Kapoor said that he did not have a problem with people disliking the film. The entire idea of doing such cinema was to make people create opinions. Films with effective story line can lead to such reactions and Kabir Singh was one such film. He feels that the movie brought out the topic of violent relationships. He claimed that a film can never always be talking about right things. If it does then it would be hypocritical for the filmmakers. He wants filmmakers to talk about real issues rather than delivering false narratives.
