Kabir Singh is the official Hindi remake of Telugu blockbuster Arjun Reddy, which starred Vijay Devarakonda and Shalini Pandey.
The makers dropped the film’s teaser in which Shahid Kapoor, who plays the protagonist in the film, is an all-out rebel. The movie’s teaser opens with a voiceover introducing Shahid’s character Dr Kabir Raj Dev Singh, who is supposed to be the best student to have graduated from the prestigious Delhi Institute of Medical Science with “an impeccable academic record.”Later, we see a completely intoxicated Shahid taking on life’s daily struggles. Towards the end of the one-minute teaser, we also get a glimpse of the female lead, Kiara Advani, who makes her appearance as the somewhat timid and shy student at the same institute. Shahid had said, “The original was very raw, very honest. I don’t think there was anything in the film that was for effect. I just felt it said things as it is and was a brazen journey of a character who goes through an emotional arc which is extreme.”Produced by Bhushan Kumar, Murad Khetani, Krishna Kumar and Ashwin Varde; Kabir Singh will release on June 21. Juggling his medical profession and love life, Kabir’s character is anything but perfect. Aggressive, headstrong and rough, Shahid’s character is seen unabashedly indulging in a variety of drugs in the teaser. Kiara Advani features as the female lead in the film. The narrative charts the journey of Kabir as he slowly descends into a realm of self-harm once his love interest gets married to a different man.
