Since Ayushmann Khurrana's Article 15 is arriving this Friday, it will be interesting to see how Shahid Kapoor's Kabir will perform in its second weekend at the ticket windows. Directed by Sandeep Reddy Vanga, the film also stars Arjan Bajwa, Soham Majumdar and Suresh Oberoi in key roles. It is produced under the banners of Cine 1 Studios and T-Series.
Earlier, Shahid revealed how playing Kabir Singh was extremely challenging for him. "Kabir Singh has been an extremely challenging film for me emotionally and physically. Since I had three distinct looks in the film, I had to transform myself to quite an extent. I had to smoke cigarettes and grow my beard. However, since my character demanded it, I did not think twice before doing what my director wanted me to do. I like doing roles that challenge me," he said.
Kabir Singh is a remake of the popular Telugu hit film Arjun Reddy that originally starred Vijay Deverakonda and Shalini Pandey. It narrates the story of Kabir (Shahid), a young final year medical student who falls in love with Preeti (Kiara), his junior in college. Anyway, have you liked the film? Tweet to us @bollywood_life
