Mumbai, April 18: Adil Hussain, the acclaimed actor, expressed regret for acting in the film ‘Kabir Singh’ during a podcast, labelling the film as ‘misogynist’. The actor, who portrayed the Dean of the college in the movie featuring Shahid Kapoor and Kiara Advani, admitted that he did not read the script or watch the original film, ‘Arjun Reddy’, before accepting the role.

Following the podcast’s widespread circulation, director Sandeep Reddy Vanga criticised Hussain on platform X, stating that the actor’s participation in 30 art films did not bring him the fame that ‘Kabir Singh’ did.

Vanga further expressed his own regret for casting Hussain, accusing him of valuing fame over passion, and announced plans to replace Hussain’s face with AI in the movie. Hussain also shared that he left the theatre 20 minutes into watching ‘Kabir Singh’, and would not recommend the film to his wife.

Hussain criticised the glorification and legitimisation of male misogyny and violence in cinema, stating that such themes are not beneficial for society. He also revealed an instance where he reluctantly accepted a film role after his request for a hefty pay was surprisingly met by the producers.

Despite initially believing that the film would be good based on a particular scene he liked, Hussain expressed his embarrassment upon watching the final product. The actor’s comments come in the backdrop of the success of Kabir Singh, Shahid Kapoor’s biggest hit, which was followed by director Sandeep Reddy Vanga’s latest venture ‘Animal’ featuring Ranbir Kapoor.
