‘Kabir Singh’ is being helmed by Sandeep Vanga, who has directed the original film ‘Arjun Reddy’. The maker had announced the release date of the film last year itself i.e 21st June 2019. On the other side, Ekta Kapoor was also gearing up to release her production venture ‘Mental Hai Kya’ on the same date. But recently, giving a solo release to Shahid Kapoor, Ekta has pushed the release date to next month – 26th July.

At the trailer launch event of ‘Kabir Singh’, when Shahid was asked about avoiding the clash, the actor said, “We announced the release date of the film a year back, and we are very clear that we are coming on this date. We are happy that we had a solo release. Now, of course, there was an announcement that they (makers of ‘Mental Hai Kya’) chose to shift the dates themselves. I wish them all the best. Rajkummar Rao and Kangana Ranaut are fantastic actors and we’re happy that we have a solo release right now.

As we see in the trailer, Shahid Kapoor can be seen playing a very edgy character. It is not for the first that Shahid has surprised his fans with such an intense look and the character.
