While it is a known fact that Kabir Singh has earned rave reviews, it cannot be denied that there are many who think that the film doesn’t deserve the celebration that it received at the box office. Reason? Because many believe that the film promotes misogyny and male dominance. When Taapsee Pannu too voiced out similar opinions in the past, she was trolled by some who claimed that Sandeep Vanga merely tried to portray flawed characters through the character played by Shahid Kapoor. To the same, Taapsee had another interesting response.
Speaking about Kabir Singh in recent reports, Taapsee Pannu countered that she would never have a problem with the portrayal of a flawed character since it is something she herself has done in films. She went on to explain that her actual problem with the Sandeep Vanga directorial is that it celebrates misogyny and glorifies the actions of the characters thereby portraying him as a hero. She believes that the society doesn’t just accept the actions of a hero like Kabir Singh but actually celebrates him and that’s where the problem lies.
Taapsee Pannu also compared the character with the role of Rumi that she played in Manmarziyaan. Reminding everyone about how Rumi Bagga loses her love and also gets divorced in the film, Taapsee went on to describe about how the audiences booed her for portraying the flawed character. Keeping in mind the double standards with which people accept and deny roles when it comes to male and female, the actress asserted that none of these will ever deter her from showcasing her opinion on the big screen neither will she give up whilst we are on the verge of change.
