Sharing the first look of  "As happy as can be for my big brother today who’s always been a shining example of a human being for me. Not a doubt in the world that you deserve the smashing success but it continues to baffle me how you were able to play one of the most complex, lost and damaged characters with such perfection while returning home to being the most centered, loving and responsible family man I know. Thank you for showing me what it means to be a responsible son, father, husband and brother always AND for knocking me out with your performance in and as #KabirSingh"

However, some fans were not impressed by the film and thought that it was highly 'misogynistic' in nature. One such netizen took to Ishaan's Instagram post and commented saying "sweet justification of misogyny". To which, Khatter replied saying, "no, actually it’s quite the opposite. It’s an appreciation post for a gem of a human being and an actor par excellence. As for your read on *the film*, it’s cinema. Everybody should have an opinion. I don’t agree with you. But that’s a conversation for another day  enjoy your day!"
