Shahid Kapoor's Kabir Singh trailer will be released any moment now, however before we are treated with an intense sneak-peek about the film, here's an exclusive information about the cast. While we'll be all eyes for Shahid Kapoor, there's Arjan Bajwa too in the film, who plays a pivotal role. Apparently the actor will play Shahid Kapoor's elder brother in the Hindi remake of Telugu hit Arjun Reddy.
Evident from the teaser, Shahid Kapoor has undergone a massive transformation for the film. Shahid had to act like he was smoking in the film and it would take him hours to just get the stench off, before returning home to his family, especially his kids two-year-old Misha and seven-month-old Zain. "I don’t endorse smoking at all. However, the role required it, as the protagonist uses it to channel his angst and rage. It wasn’t easy, and it came to a point where I smoked almost 20 cigarettes a day. It would take me close to two hours to shower and get rid of the smells before I could return home to my children," Shahid had told Mumbai Mirror.
Kabir Singh is produced by Bhushan Kumar, Murad Khetani, Kishan Kumar and Ashwini Varde. It went on floors on October 21, 2018. 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.
