Lead actor Shahid Kapoor has been receiving extravagant accolades from audience and critics for his portrayal as a disturbed and alcoholic young man. Our Editor-in-chief Tushar Joshi gave Kabir Singh 4 stars and wrote, "In the case of Kabir Singh, Shahid delivers one of his career's finest performances. His rage and anger isn't just on the surface but it’s visceral and a part of the air he breathes. To show that complexity isn't easy, so Shahid digs deep and becomes the madness that is Kabir. He is deep and intense yet light and breezy when needed. There is a natural flair and charm that he puts to use full throttle."
Kiara Advani plays the love interest of the titular role in the film and the actress' subtle portrayal has left fans stunned. The MS Dhoni actress too is receiving great appreciation for her performance in the film.
