However, Arjan Bajwa defended the film by saying that he or the film does not endorse hitting women. The film was all about exploring the creative freedom of the story. In this story, Kiara Advani’s character Preeti slaps Shahid’s character, Kabir Singh, first. It is then Kabir also slaps her.

Arjan Bajwa was then asked about Sandeep Reddy, the director of the film. Sandeep Reddy had earlier commented that in a relationship, the man should have the right to touch a woman wherever they want, to see any emotion. This comment had gotten the director into trouble. Arjun Bajwa defended the director by saying that he did not ‘glorify’ any foul behaviour, but the romance and freedom in a relationship. Arjan called it a story and not a situation with deep meaning behind it. Arjan Bajwa also called out on the scene in Gully Boy, when Alia Bhatt’s character breaks a bottle over Kalki Koechlin’s character when she is jealous about the former flirting with latter’s boyfriend. Arjan questioned, why isn’t anyone talking about such scenes, where a woman is involved in abuse.
