Shahid revealed that before taking up this role of Kabir Singh, he was very scared. “I was sh*t scared. I thought my younger brother, my wife and my children when they will grow up and see this. They will say ‘Yeh kya karne ki zaroorat thi papa? Bhool gaye kya ke aap 38 ho?!’ (Why did you need to do this papa? Did you forget you were 38 years old?),” the actor told DNA.

In this romantic saga, Kabir suffers a heartbreak and that makes him go through mental as well as physical changes. Shahid found this part quite challenging and hence he decided to come on board.

Opening up about heartbreak and self-destruction, the actor in one of his previous media interaction had said, “‘Kabir Singh’ is a phase in everyone’s life. We all become self-destructive when we feel like we’ve fallen apart. You may feel empathy for him because, in all his misgivings, he is vulnerable. It’s a cathartic journey of a man, and a cautionary tale. It made me feel that I never want to become this person.”

‘Kabir Singh’ is the Hindi adaptation of hit Telugu film ‘Arjun Reddy’. The film will see Shahid romance Kiara Advani on silver screen for the very first time.
