Mumbai: If Kabir Singh has soared at the box- office it has also received a lot of flax for portraying misogyny. We do need to agree on the fact that Bollywood movies do inspire people either positively or negatively. What happened was TikTok star Ashwani Kashyap also known as Johnny Dada assassinated an air-hostess.

He used the dramatic dialogue from the film which said, 'Jo Mera Nahin Ho Sakta, Usse Kisi Aur Ke Hone Ka Mauka Nahin Doonga'. Vanga told to Mid- Day that, "I feel sorry for the girl and her family. It is unfortunate that people have lost their lives. As filmmakers, we are responsible for our craft and need to consider the repercussions, but never have my films [endorsed] killing anyone. Kabir Singh or even Arjun Reddy [the Telugu original] never [supported] murder.”

He described him as a mentally sick person who looks at Bollywood as an inspiration for satisfying their motives. "If you see Shahid’s character in the film, he is a self-destructive person who is harming himself more than anyone else,” the filmmaker added.

Sandeep’s next is an untitled crime drama film that will be produced by Bhushan Kumar and Murad Khetani.
