With films like Kahaani, Tumhari Sulu, Parineeta and The Dirty Picture in her filmography, it might be difficult for Vidya Balan to digest a film like Kabir Singh. And the actress didn’t entirely disagree.
An entertainment website recently asked Vidya Balan a question that Kabir Singh actress Kiara Advani wanted to ask Vidya.

Kiara asked Vidya her thoughts on playing a character like Preeti (Kiara’s character in Kabir Singh), and how did she perceive a character like Preeti.
Vidya first complimented Kiara on her beauty. Vidya said, “She’s so pretty.”
Balan then went on to reveal the one thing that she didn’t like about Kabir Singh. She said, “I personally didn’t like the fact that she [Preeti, Kiara’s character] takes him back at the end of the film. But that’s my personal view.”
But Vidya didn’t miss out on complimenting Kiara on her acting skills. She said, “I called her up and told her she did a great job. Especially for a city-bred independent girl who’s not like Preeti, to play it with so much conviction is the best thing about being an actor. Hats off!”
Shahid Kapoor and Kiara Advani’s Kabir Singh got embroiled in several controversies the moment it was released.
In one of the scenes, Shahid Kapoor’s character is also seen slapping Preeti. This scene made the audience uncomfortable and director Sandeep Reddy Vanga received a lot of flak for the same.
Though Kabir Singh was problematic on a lot of levels, the film became the highest grosser of 2019.
Coming to Vidya, her latest film Mission Mangal is doing wonders at the box office. The film has crossed the Rs 100-crore mark.
