Kabir Singh was the Hindi remake of Vijay Deverakonda’s Arjun Reddy. The film also starred Kiara Advani. Despite performing really well among the audience, the film raised questions about glorifying toxic masculinity. The film had collected over 250 crore at the box office in India.

Meanwhile, Arjun Reddy was directed by Sandeep Reddy Vanga, and starred Vijay along with Shalini Pandey. Both films were criticised for promoting toxic masculinity and normalising violence on women in romantic relationships.

Earlier Shahid had thanked the audience for loving the film, and written on his Instagram account, “The most flawed character I have ever played. Has become my most loved. Indeed Indian cinema and the audience has come a long way. More power to brave choices. More power to you all for your maturity and humanness. You have given me wings to fly. To not only be burdened by the need to be loved to be a star but to have the courage to be hated in equal measure to be an actor. Here’s to cinema mirroring life."

Vijay will be next seen in Family Star alongside Mrunal Thakur. Meanwhile, Shahid, who was last seen in Teri Baaton Mein Aisa Uljha Jiya, announced his next. He will be seen in Ashwatthama – The Saga Continues.
