Powerhouse performer Shahid Kapoor will be showcasing his rough and tough avatar in Sandeep Vanga’s ‘Kabir Singh’. This Shahid Kapoor starrer is a remake of hit Telugu film ‘Arjun Reddy’ (2017). ‘Lust Stories’ actress Kiara Advani will be seen opposite Shahid in this Hindi remake.

In the film, Shahid will be seen playing the role of a surgeon who becomes an alcoholic and goes on a self-destruction path after his ex-lover marries someone else. Being the terrific actor that he is, Shahid made sure to get into the skin of his character of a college student. Shahid prepared for the role physically as well as mentally.

The ‘Haider‘ actor lost weight and sported a lean and rugged look for the title character in ‘Kabir Singh’. Reportedly, he also spent a lot of time with college students in Delhi. The actor wanted to understand their viewpoints and lifestyle. A source close to the development was quoted saying in DNA as, “Shahid spoke to many students from a Delhi college and since the look was unpolished, he was keen on using clothes from their actual wardrobe to make it more believable.”

Interestingly, Sushant Singh Rajput also did the same while working on his upcoming campus-romance ‘Chhichhore’.

Well, that’s a great idea to bring authenticity to one’s onscreen character. Don’t you guys agree?

The trailer of this much-awaited film will be out on May 13. And the film is scheduled to hit the silver screens on June 21.
