Shahid Kapoor who is essaying the role of an angry, vengeful man in his latest release 'Kabir Singh' has earned praises for his flawless portrayal of the role.
The film that hit theatres on June 21 left the audience debating over the misogynistic treatment of the film. Despite facing criticism from specific audiences, Kabir Singh holds the box-office strong.
Trade analyst and film critic Taran Adarsh took to his Twitter and wrote: "#KabirSingh is firing on all cylinders at the BO...
