Earlier, Shahid Kapoor had revealed how playing Kabir Singh was extremely challenging. “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 had said.
Shahid Kapoor is seen as Dr Kabir Rajdheer Singh in the film, which is a remake of the hit Telugu drama Arjun Reddy, which originally starred Vijay Deverakonda and Shalini Pandey. Produced by Bhushan Kumar, Murad Khetani, Krishan Kumar and Ashwin Varde, the film was released on June 21. The remake is written and directed by Sandeep Reddy Vanga.
