Talking about Kabir Singh, the film narrates the story of Kabir (Shahid), a young final year medical student who falls in love with Preeti, his junior in college. Kiara essays the role of a simple college girl Preeti in the film. The film is an official remake of Telugu hit movie Arjun Reddy which starred Vijay Deverakonda and Shalini Pandey in lead roles. People are spellbound by Shahid’s performance and many are deeming it as Shahid’s best till date. Not only the audience but also the Bollywood Industry is bowled over by Kabir Singh. Celebs who have watched the film are heaping praises on their respective social media accounts. Karan Johar, Neha Dhupia, Jaaved Jaaferi and others shared their reviews and were all praise for Shahid's performance.
Shahid portrayal of Kabir Singh is being compared to Dilip Kumar and Shah Rukh Khan’s character from Devdas right from the moment the teaser of the film dropped on the net. But the actor took it sportingly and said, "I'll take that as a compliment because Devdas is a classic film, which is the story of a self-destructive man, as the hero was mad about his love. So yes, if you look at it in a generic way, you can draw some parallels."
