Arjun Reddy, the Telugu version of the Sandeep Reddy Vanga directorial, released in 2017 and Vijay Deverakonda's role as Arjun became a rage. His character connected with viewers and the film went on to become one of Indian cinema's top-performing and cult classics. Within a week of its release, it became a major sensation. Though many questioned about the glorification of toxic masculinity, Arjun Reddy managed to set the box office on fire as it was introduced as ‘new’ kind of cinema to the Telugu audience. The story of the film revolves around Arjun Reddy, who is a free-spirited doctor falls in love with Preethi Shetty. He is a rebel, while she plays a shy student.

Two years later, Kabir Singh, the Hindi version of Telugu blockbuster Arjun Reddy, released in theaters. Arjun Reddy and Kabir Singh are the same movies, frame to frame, helmed by the same filmmaker comprising a different cast. Kabir Singh stars Shahid Kapoor and Kiara Advani in the lead roles. Shahid Kapoor as Kabir Singh managed to win the hearts of the audience. His intense and rowdy avatar grabbed a lot of attention. Both the actors, Shahid Kapoor and Vijay Deverakonda did justice to their respective roles in different languages. While Arjun Reddy escaped major backlash during its release, Shahid Kapoor starrer hit the headlines for the glorification of misogyny.

There is no denying Vijay Deverakonda brought a fresh screen appeal for the Telugu audience and he nailed it. He not only acted but also lived the character he portrayed on the big screen. On the other hand, Shahid Kapoor has already portrayed intense characters before, with Kabir Singh one of them. 

Both the actors clearly had a lot of fun in playing the rustic, rowdy and mad lover. But who according to you played the role better? Vote below and share your thoughts in the comment section below.

Shahid Kapoor was very short so he looked very funny in that attitude. Vijay was like Greek lord, so fu**ing solid, and nailed the character.

Vijay Devarakonda and Shahid Kapoor did a great job but Vijay wins for me, even in the movie over all Arjun Reddy was a bit more realistic and scenes seemed more natural, like in the holi scene in AR Arjun was angry but emotional and crying at the same time but in KS Kabir was only angry, both the actor's performance was great though

VD playboy,chu***a. Never easy to imitiate but SHAHID done with perfect soul, father of 2 kids 39 year's old still done justice to college student. VD fans watch first Kaminey, R..Rajkumar, Haider, UdtaPunjab and bark senseless idiots. Shahid stands next to AlluArjun Vijay in Dance.. vd??

Has to be Vijay. His acting was real and organic. I love Shahid but I felt there's a bit of overacting as Kabir because in our daily life we don't normally give very loud expressions. Vijay as Arjun perfectly nailed it with natural acting.

No doubt Vijay Devarakonda.. way he acting skills movie turn out as a block buster so because of this in Hindi got chance to remade by Shahid Kapoor and he completely copied his style and he even tried in different style to impress the audience so my vote to VD Rowdy Baby...

Oyee g***du. Shahid didn't get for Kabir Singh , but he did a stellar performance and box office is the proof. He has won our hearts for his performance. Leonardo DiCaprio didn't get a singe Oscar untill Revenant came. Does that mean he was not good in other movies ? He was excellent in all the roles he did. Go get a life idiot

Let’s be really honest.. Be it looks or acting..VD rocked! Though shahid is a good actor basically..he looked like a small teen kid and it was funny seeing him do action scenes and he was trying too hard to fit the role.
