Sandeep Reddy Vanga after making the hit Telugu film Arjun Reddy with South star Vijay Deverakonda gave fans a treat when he decided to remake it in Hindi with Shahid Kapoor titled Kabir Singh. And now, ahead of its release, it is all one can talk about. If you haven't heard already, Shahid Kapoor will be seen as Dr Kabir Rajveer Singh in the film. Kiara Advani essays the role of a simple college girl named Preeti in the film and from what we have seen in the trailer and songs, Shahid and Kiara's chemistry looks refreshing. It is truly something that we are looking forward to seeing more of.
Well, that and how the director has rediscovered his protagonist in Kabir Singh. In a recent interview, Shahid opened up about Reddy's passion for his craft and how it is all-encompassing. However, that's not all he said. During our chat, we asked Shahid about the incident where Reddy sort of reprimanded a reporter at the trailer event (because the journo wasn't mindful of the filmmaker's answer to a question he asked), Shahid not only said that was a 'fair point' but also explained how nobody meant it. However when probed further if Sandeep Vanga Reddy is the original Kabir Singh/Arjun Reddy, Shahid repeated the same in unison. Not just that when questioned if he was a strict director to shoot with, the actor added, "He is very passionate, intense and involved. But he is very honest. So, some days it would be very funny; me and Kiara would do a scene and we’d finish the shot and we’d come to the monitor and Sandeep has a habit (scratching his head). And then he’d be like ‘very bad’ (while shaking head). The first few times I was like, ‘yaar tu aise kyun bol raha hai? ‘One more’ bolde ya ‘I think we should change this’ bolde. ‘Very bad?’ matlab humko fail hi kardiya. Sometimes I used to feel like yeh humein bol raha hai ki ‘yeh tumse hoga hi nahi. Galti hogayi maaf kardo.’"

"So, I used to find that very funny. But I love the fact that he can’t help himself in expressing it so candidly. That is what is similar between Kabir Singh and Sandeep. And I know cause I am a little bit like that (too). I am not very good at faking it, " he concluded.
