Kabir Singh has been at the end of criticism, where many call it a 'misogynistic' film which promotes 'toxic masculinity.' However, the poor reviews seem to have not affected the film's performance, which has turned into the top earning film of 2019 in just three weeks. Speaking about the film's success, Shahid Kapoor said: "I have never ever felt so thankful. The most flawed character I have ever played has become my most loved. Indeed Indian cinema and the audience has come a long way."

Your love is so overwhelming words will always fall short. Thank you for understanding him forgiving him and loving him with all your heart. We all fall apart. And we all must strive to rise from our faults. To be better. To be wiser. To be kinder. He is flawed. So are we all. You didn't judge him you experienced him. You understood him. I have never ever felt so thankful. 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. To protagonists who don't have to be restricted by their goodness and can be human and imperfect. There is perfection in imperfection and that is the beauty and the challenge of this human life. Thank you. Again and again. You all are the heroes of this story.
