Kabir Singh inspired TikTok star kills a girl

Recently, a TikTok star Ashwani Kumar murdered a flight attendant named Nitika Sharma after he got to know that she was getting married to someone else.

Apparently, Kumar was obsessed with a flight attendant named Nitika Sharma and when he got to know that she is going to marry someone else, Kumar murdered the girl. But before getting arrested by the cops, he committed suicide. The man was already ‘wanted’ for three murders in Uttar Pradesh.

After he committed suicide last week, the Bijnor Police investigated the matter and found that the man was highly impressed by Shahid’s Kabir Singh and often posted images and dialogues from the film.

In one of the TikTok videos, he was also seen mouthing the dialogue, “Jo Mera Nahin Ho Sakta, Usse Kisi Aur Ke Hone Ka Mauka Nahin Doonga.”

Now, as reported by Mid-Day, the director of the film Sandeep Reddy Vanga, commented on the entire matter.

He told a daily, “I feel sorry for the girl and her family. It is unfortunate that people have lost their lives. As filmmakers, we are responsible for our craft and need to consider the repercussions, but never have my films [endorsed] killing anyone. Kabir Singh or even Arjun Reddy [the Telugu original] never [supported] murder.”

“The man in question seems to have some psychological issue. Such people often look up to Bollywood celebrities, sportspersons or politicians. If you see Shahid’s character in the film, he is a self-destructive person who is harming himself more than anyone else,” added Mr. Vanga.
