Adil Hussain Regrets Being Part of Kabir Singh, Sandeep Reddy Vanga Threatens to Replace His Face with AI

Bollywood actor Adil Hussain expresses his regret for featuring in Kabir Singh, a Shahid Kapoor starrer that faced criticism for promoting misogyny and abusive behavior. Director Sandeep Reddy Vanga threatens to replace his face with AI in the film.

Adil Hussain, a renowned Bollywood actor, has openly expressed his regret for appearing in the Shahid Kapoor starrer Kabir Singh. The film, which is a remake of the Telugu film Arjun Reddy, received both love and criticism for its music, romance, and the character of Shahid. Critics accused the character of Shahid of misogyny and chauvinistic behavior, and director Sandeep Reddy Vanga faced backlash for promoting abusive behavior.

Adil Hussain played a small but pivotal role in the film, and during a recent interview, he confessed that he tried to back out of the film due to his busy schedule. However, the production house agreed to his price, and he ended up doing the scene. Later, when he saw the film, he was shocked and expressed his regret for being a part of it.

Adil Hussain stated that a film like Kabir Singh celebrates something that is not beneficial for society. He added that it legitimizes male misogyny and violence, which should not be glorified. His statement seemed to have upset director Sandeep Reddy Vanga, who took to Twitter to express his disappointment.

Sandeep Reddy Vanga, in a tweet, accused Adil Hussain of being greedy and threatened to replace his face with AI in the film. He wrote, “Ur ‘belief’ in 30 art films didn’t get as much fame to u as ur ‘regret’ of 1 BLOCKBUSTER film did. I regret casting u, knwing that ur greed is bigger than ur passion. NOW I’ll save U from the shame by replacing Ur face with AI help?? Now smile properly”.

Reacting to Sandeep Reddy Vanga‘s post, Adil Hussain said that he was in the US and had not seen the post. He added that he had no intention of seeing it and that he stood by his statement.

Kabir Singh, which also starred Kiara Advani as the leading lady, was a blockbuster hit at the box office. However, the film’s portrayal of misogyny and abusive behavior sparked a debate on the role of cinema in shaping societal norms.
