The question was asked by the fan on the basis of multiple controversies that surrounded the film Kabir Singh even though the performances in it were top-notch. The most critical backlash that it received was about the scene where Kabir Singh slaps his lady love Preeti due to his anger management issues. The film was also called out for having very few dialogues for the female lead, Kiara Advani. The character was called submissive and the relationship portrayed was called toxic in many ways. Kabir Singh is originally a remake of the Telugu film Arjun Reddy which featured Vijay Devarakonda in the lead role and also received a similar response from the audience.
