CBFC member Vani Tripathi Tikoo slams Kabir Singh, calls it ‘terribly misogynistic’


She wrote, “I’m serious about this thought that Misogyny is “Infectious” have been noticing the narrative around #KABIRSINGH past few days..What a terribly misogynistic and extremely violent film! Does the actor have no responsibility for choosing to play a part in a narrative that can set us back as a society? #StopMisogyny #KabirSingh

Someone asked me after my last post what’s wrong with an Actor choosing a role? She had replied to a tweet praising Shahid Kapoor’s performance in Kabir Singh. Creatures of ambition? Does the actor have no responsibility for choosing to play a part in a narrative that can set us back as a society? As the Cinematic journey of the country has gone beyond its “Traditional” Women as “Eye Candy” routine. — Vani Tripathi Tikoo (@vanityparty) June 25, 2019
Kabir Singh’s plot revolves around a brilliant surgeon Kabir Singh who suffers heartbreak and goes down the path of self-destruction and self-pity. Is that all we have become? #LetsTalk #India #KabirSingh https://t.co/UxUbWdOpAF

She is not alone, however. Arjun Reddy was bad enough and now this remake! While Shahid plays the titular role in the movie, Kiara Advani plays his romantic interest. A character is only a piece of written paper if not enlivened by an actor! Arjun Reddy was bad enough and now this remake! Can we remember how movie characters are idolised? Am I surprised it’s doing well …Well Well! Dear pal there is never a wrong or a right it’s the choices that you make on screen to portray is what defines who you are! Advertising

CBFC member Vani Tripathi Tikoo is not a fan. Am I surprised it’s doing well …Well Well!”

I’m serious about this thought that Misogyny is “Infectious” have been noticing the narrative around #KABIRSINGH past few days..What a terribly misogynistic and extremely violent film! Dear pal there is never a wrong or a right it’s the choices that you make on screen to portray is what defines who you are! It has made over Rs 70 crore in just three days and is expected to get past Rs 100 crore soon. — Vani Tripathi Tikoo (@vanityparty) June 25, 2019

I find it baffling that “Big Stars” make these choices who actually lead by Example! Creatures of ambition? Singer Sona Mohapatra also tweeted about the film. Vani Tripathi Tikoo also said in another tweet, “Someone asked me after my last post what’s wrong with an Actor choosing a role? Mohapatra said, “& how can we keep such deeply disturbing, dark & dangerous politics ‘aside’? Is that all we have become? #StopMisogyny #KabirSingh.”
Despite mixed reception, Kabir Singh is already a huge hit at the box office. In a series of tweets, Vani has excoriated the film. Can we remember how movie characters are idolised? As the Cinematic journey of the country has gone beyond its “Traditional” Women as “Eye Candy” routine. A character is only a piece of written paper if not enlivened by an actor!”

& how can we keep such deeply disturbing , dark & dangerous politics ‘aside’? #LetsTalk #India #KabirSingh.”
