It’s been two years since the blockbuster romantic movie Kabir Singh got released. The Jodi of Shahid Kapoor and Kiara Advani was loved on-screen. The movie was a remake of Sandeep Reddy Vanga’s movie Arjun Reddy.
Talking about how special the movie experience was, Shahid Kapoor, said:
“It’s been my most loved film and one of the most important films of my life, if not the most important. I want to thank my fans for making my most flawed and broken character my most successful character ever.”
Adapting into the Kabir’s personality was hard said, Shahid:
“I had a hard time while shooting Kabir Singh because I had to play an alcoholic and somebody who is into substance abuse. I had to smoke beedis and I was a father coming back to my kids. It was challenging as there were different looks and headspaces to Kabir Singh. We tend to give importance to physical changes in actors. That’s an easy part to do. The difficult part is to get into the character’s heart and soul and try to understand why they are doing something. To get into the head of a guy who is erratic, aggressive, violent and emotional was challenging,”
When asked about the similarity with the character, he said:
“I am not violent. I can’t straight up go and talk to a girl like Kabir does. That’s not in my personality. I am pretty shy around girls.” There is one thing, however, that Shahid revealed he and Kabir Singh had in common. “He is not social, which I can relate to a certain degree, because I am told I am not social.”
Shahid revealed he loved the performance of Vijay Devarakaonda’s acting in Arjun Reddy.
“I was fascinated by the filmmaker and the fact that someone told a love story which was unconventional. We make more safe love stories about nice people. I found Arjun Reddy raw and real.”
Shahid gave credit to his wife Mira for making him sign the film.
“Mira loved the film. In fact, she told me repeatedly to do the film as she thought I could do it. I wouldn’t have been able to do the film without her love and support like I can’t imagine doing anything in life without her,”
