Shahid Kapoor won hearts in 2018 for his role of Maharawal Ratan Singh in Padmaavat and looks like the actor is set to take his fan base a notch higher with Kabir Singh. An alcoholic, a jilted lover and a medical student, Shahid is all set to portray these personalities for his upcoming film Kabir Singh. The trailer of the film released today and Shahid along with his co-star Kiara Advani made an impressive appearance at the event. The actors spoke at length about their characters as well as the film.  

Kabir Singh is a remake of the hit Telugu film Arjun Reddy starring Vijay Deverakonda. While the Telugu counterpart was a blockbuster hit at the box office, Shahid at the event was quizzed by reporters whether he faced any difficulty in doing a remake. He said, "The most difficult thing about doing a remake to rediscover the journey and pain."

The film highlights Kabir's quick spiral and alcoholism. Speaking about his character, Shahid elaborated, "It is very different from all the roles I have done before. I know a lot of people think this is a edgy role like that of Tommy Singh (Udta Punjab) but this is a love story and it is about his pain." 

Unlike Shahid's last film, Batti Gul Meter Chalu, which was a comedy drama, Kabir Singh is slightly on the darker side of drama. Speaking about how different it is, Shahid said, "We have not changed the world of the film, it is dark in parts but overall a very passionate movie. I think we are hypocritical about how we see movies in India as against internationally. We all have issues, we all are different, we all have anger in us. We are not showing everyone is perfect. We are not sugarcoating things." 

The intense love story will see Kiara Advani playing the female lead. "I think I am very lucky to have played this character in this intense love story and blessed to have Shahid playing Kabir made it easier," the actress said.
