Singer Sona Mohapatra, who doesn't shy away from expressing her opinions on social media, criticised Shahid Kapoor's recently-released film Kabir Singh in a series of tweets. Sona slammed Shahid for being a part of the film and wrote: "Does the actor have no responsibility for choosing to play a part in a narrative that can set us back as a society?" In response to actor Nakul Mehta's tweet, the singer quoted him in her tweet and she wrote: "And how can we keep such deeply disturbing, dark and dangerous politics 'aside'? Does the actor have no responsibility for choosing to play a part in a narrative that can set us back as a society? Is that all we have become? Creatures of ambition? Let's talk."

In a separate tweet, Sona criticised National Commission for Women, Rekha Sharma for her now deleted tweet, in which he had praised Shahid Kapoor for his performance. In her tweet, Sona referred to Kabir Singh as a "misogynistic and patriarchal narrative" and added, "Didn't notice the deeply misogynistic and patriarchal narrative? Just intense acting? That is truly deeply disturbing. That you are the the chairperson of the NCW India , makes me wonder about what we can hope for when it comes to women's place in India."
