Shahid Kapoor's Kabir Singh which also stars Kiara Advani is all one can talk about these days. The Sandeep Reddy Vanga directorial which is the official remake of Telegu superhit Arjun Reddy will see Shahid Kapoor play the titular role and has fans excited. After the trailer dropped, the buzz just went off the roof, thanks to the actor's drastic transformation where he will be seen as a surgeon-turned- rebel lover. Needless to say, fans are raving since and we can totally see why!
In fact, we recently sat down with Shahid for a heart-to-heart to discuss everything Kabir Singh, especially his process for the raw and edgy story. Just to get a better understanding of the same, we asked him if there are any parallels that can be drawn between Kabir Singh and Udta Punjab or if he underwent the same prep this time as he did that time for Tommy Singh. And Shahid said it as it is - NO. However, the reason behind the same, if not a revelation, is endearing just the way he puts it. Both in terms of sinking teeth into the character or snapping out of it when he has to, Shahid credits his wife Mira, kids Misha and Zain for the same. Watch the video to know why.
The film is bankrolled by Bhushan Kumar, Murad Khetani, Kishan Kumar and Ashwini Varde. Earlier in an interview, Shahid had mentioned why he chose to do this film. "I usually don’t watch too many films in Telugu and it surprised me with its tonality, rawness, simplicity and the fact that it was so real and believable. The character is very fascinating for me as an actor because the emotional arc... is very original. I loved it and Vijay Deverakonda, who played Arjun, did it so well," he had said.
