The film has clocked one year today and Kiara took to her Instagram handle to celebrate the occasion. Much to the delight of her fans, the actress shared some unseen behind-the-scenes pictures and videos with co-star Shahid.

Wishing her co-star on the completion of film’s first year, Kiara took to her Instagram and wrote, “Dear Kabir Singh, Happy anniversary! Love always, Preeti.❤️”
Directed by Sandeep Reddy Vanga, ‘Kabir Singh’ was the remake of Telugu hit ‘Arjun Reddy’.

While several critics panned the film, but the audience showered their love on Shahid’s performance and helped it earn around Rs 250 crore at the box office in India.
Talking about the controversy surrounding his film and how it affected them, producer Murad Khetani exclusively told Bollywood Bubble, “It was a huge controversy and it did affect us. Nobody was promoting drugs or whatever it was. It was the character of the film. That was the story of the character what happened in his life and all. Nobody was promoting all those things.”
