Shahid Kapoor: If you ask me, ‘Kabir Singh’ and ‘Arjun Reddy’ are cousins

Ever since the teaser of ‘Kabir Singh’ released, we have all been eagerly awaiting the film’s release. Shahid Kapoor is looking terrific as an alcoholic who takes the Highway to hell. The film is an official remake of Telugu film ‘Arjun Reddy’ starring Vijay Deverakonda.

Now, speaking up on the comparisons between the original and the remake, Shahid said (in an interview with mid-day), “Vijay Deverakonda was spectacular in the film. If you ask me, Kabir Singh and Arjun Reddy are cousins; they are not the same person.

We have tried to do something different because it’s important to rediscover the journey of the character. We shifted the milieu to Delhi and Mumbai; so, by extension, his family and upbringing has changed. But we have retained the fundamental energy of the character,” he added.

The movie is directed by Sandeep Reddy Vanga who directed the original as well. We are sure that Shahid (being the class actor that he is) will do justice to the remake. Even Vijay Deverakonda wished Shahid and team all the best on Twitter. Take a look:
