Kabir Singh is the remake of Telugu film Arjun Reddy and it narrates the story of an orthopedic surgeon, who embarks on a self-destructive journey after his girlfriend marries the man of her father's choice. Shahid Kapoor plays the surgeon, who is battling alcoholism, substance abuse and has anger management issues.
Kabir Singh was panned by film critics when it released two week ago and it was widely called a 'misogynistic' and 'violent' film. Despite poor reviews, Kabir Singh made big bucks the ticket window. Its spectacular performance has affected the business of critically-acclaimed Article 15, which released last week.
Article 15, starring Ayushmann Khurrana, is directed by Anubhav Sinha.
