Arjun Reddy’s Bollywood remake has opened to a thunderous response. Critics have been lambasting it for glorifying toxic and misogynistic hero. Feminists are ripping apart the film for the Stockholm syndrome heroine submitting herself to unruly hero. Sandeep Reddy Vanga included some scenes where Shahid Kapoor asks Kiara Advani to adjust her Dupatta as men around are watching. This hasn’t gone down well with feminist flagbearers. However, Shahid Kapoor’s performance is being lauded. Kabir Singh strikes big on release day. The film collected 21 crore on day 1.
