Kabir Singh ​​starring Shahid Kapoor and Kiara Advani will hit the screens on June21, 2019 and ever since the makers of the film dropped the trailer online, fans have been eagerly waiting to watch Shahid as Kabir and Kiara as Preeti in the film. For all those who don’t know, Kiara Advani wasn’t the original choice for the film as SOTY2 star Tara Sutaria was roped in to romance Shahid in the film but after Tara walked out of the film, Kiara was roped in. 

While promoting the film, Kiara was quizzed about replacing Tara and she informed that the director approached her through a casting agent after watching her performance in Telugu film Bharat Ane Nenu opposite Mahesh Babu. “I did a screen test for Kabir Singh and Sandeep sir liked it. Things were almost locked but then for reasons best known it did not work out then. The film went through casting changes and one day it came back to me. I did ask the director why cast me again? He said because 'I only see you'. He was convinced that only I could do this film. I truly believe films are in your destiny," said Kiara. Well, this is what they say is destiny because after since Tara was roped in first, looks like this film had to fall under the lap of Kiara.

Since Kiara has worked in the Telugu industry, she was quizzed if she happened to watch the original film Arjun Reddy and to this, Kiara said that it was on Arjun Kapoor’s recommendation that Kiara watched the original film before starting the shoot. “It was Arjun Kapoor who told me to watch this film because he knew I was doing Telugu movies at that time. And I had truly loved it. A few months later I read about a Hindi remake being in the pipeline. For me to be part of it and being directed by the original director for the Hindi version was important. He (Sandeep) has stayed true to the original film,” informed Kiara. Talking about the film, which is just few days away from release, it is the official remake of Telugu hit, Arjun Reddy which featured Vijay Deverakonda in the lead role. In the film, as everyone can tell from the trailer, Shahid Kapoor will be seen as Kabir Singh who is an alcoholic surgeon having anger management issues.

I believe Kiara is better suited to the role as she is more demure in appearance than Tara. And going by the trailer clips, Kiara is a good actress who plays her part very convincingly. Feel the film is going to an huge hit - I can’t wait to see it!

She is yuck in front of Tara

She is jealous of Tara that’d Why she speaks like that. Because Tara is close to Sidarth
But Tara is far better than you Kiara and multitalented than you
Get well soon because jealousy is a disease !
