Shahid Kapoor apparently taunted those feminists, who objected him slapping Kiara Advani in Kabir Singh, as he wrote, "In a time where people are quick to judge (others not themselves) you understood him. You understood our interpretation of the angst of a broken heart. This one will always be special. So so special."

Bollywood actor added, "And it would just not have been possible without @kiaraaliaadvani, @sandeepreddy.vanga, @muradkhetani and @ashwinvarde @bhushankumar @santha_dop, Payal and so so many others. Thank you all once again. And remember. Keep it real and make it count. Be kind. Be good. Spread positivity. And always believe. "
