It is already known that Telugu cult film Arjun Reddy is remade in Hindi as Kabir Singh with Shahid Kapoor as the lead. The Udta Punjab actor is known for his intense performances and he seemed like a perfect fit for the role. Even the teaser proved the same and increased the expectations on the film.

He also used to borrow clothes from the students in Delhi as the role in this film, to get the unpolished look of the protagonist right. He used to spend a lot of time with students to learn about their mindsets.
Such was the dedication shown by him to make the character look more authentic. the theatrical trailer of the movie will be out on this 13th. Directed by Sandeep Reddy Vanga, Kabir Singh features Kiara Advani as the heroine. It is slated to release worldwide on June 21.
