No one question SRK when he killed shilpa in baazigar: Shahid kapoor on Kabir Singh criticism

Actor Shahid Kapoor, in an interview, spoke about Kabir Singh's criticism and said, "If you think cinema is an educational institution that you're taught what you should or should not to do, that's your choice. Cinema is meant to mirror life. It's about representing the truth. It's an adult film, for adults, who can distinguish between right and wrong". He further said that no one brought up Baazigar when SRK kills Shilpa Shetty. No one said anything about Ranbir Kapoor putting a commode seat on Sonam Kapoor's neck as a mangalsutra in Sanju. Why everyone is after Kabir Singh? “The film is about flawed character, Kabir doesn't know how to handle himself, and every Kabir needs Preeti in his life”, Shahid explains.
