Jab We Met continues to hold a significant place in the hearts of the audience even after 14 years. The romantic comedy, directed by Imtiaz Ali, continues to receive a lot of love from fans all over the world. Shahid Kapoor's portrayal of the character 'Aditya' was a game changer for his career.
However, it seems like Shahid prefers his other films over the film Jab We Met.
Recently, Shahid had a fun Twitter Q&A session with his fans, where he was asked to choose between Jab We Met and Kabir Singh by a fan. While most of us Shahid would choose Jab We Met; little did we know that the actor will opt for Kabir Singh instead. And soon, his response received backlashes from many Twitter users.
Kabir Singh, released in 2019, drew a lot of criticism on the internet for glorifying toxic masculinity. Because of his sexist and patriarchal mindset, the character of Kabir Singh has been termed chaotic.
Choosing Kabir Singh over Jab We Met; Shahid must have had his reasons, but it didn't go down well with some of his fans, who began questioning and judging Shahid for his decision.
Some described him as a "real-life Anshuman," others said his response "made no sense."
While some also defended Shahid, one of his fan wrote, "Kabir Singh is 5 times bigger hit than jab we met. Also the acting level in KS is way better and difficult than JWM. So he would chose it anyway. KS impact is also way more, though the character is bad but he nailed it”
