It was a known fact that Shahid Kapoor’s next film is going to be Kabir Singh but the day the teaser of the film was dropped online, fans were in for a surprise as Shahid Kapoor as Kabir Singh stunned one and all. From his dialogues to his body language and alcoholic avatar, fans loved it all, and in an interview with Mirror, Shahid Kapoor reveals that it was difficult to play the role of Kabir Singh, an alcoholic surgeon because for all those who don’t know, Shahid Kapoor is a teetotaler in real life. That’s right!

In the teaser, we have seen that Shahid Kapoor is boozing, smoking cigarettes and openly saying curse words, and since Shahid had to smoke beedis and pretend to snort cocaine for a major portion of the film, the 38-year-old-actor reveals that before going home to his children- Misha and Zain, the actor used to take a shower for almost two hours every day. “I don’t endorse smoking at all. However, the role required it as the protagonist uses it to channel his angst and rage. It wasn’t easy and it came to a point where I smoked almost 20 cigarettes a day. It would take me close to two hours to shower and get rid of the smells before I could return home to my children,” informed Shahid.

In the film, while one portion of the film will see Shahid Kapoor as a college student, for which the actor shed 40 kgs, the other portion of the film will see him as a surgeon who is on the path to self destruction after his girlfriend, played by Kiara Advani, marries someone else. In the teaser, there is a scene wherein Shahid hurls abuses over when phone when he comes to know that some touched his girlfriend so we can only imagine what’s in store for us in the film. Kabir Singh is a remake of the 2017 film by Sandeep Reddy Vanga’s hit Telugu film- Arjun Reddy and in the original film, the lead role was played by Vijay Deverakonda and Shalini Pandey. Kabir Singh will hit the screens on June 21, 2019.
