Shahid Kapoor is all geared up to appear in the Hindi Remake of Sandeep Reddy Vanga’s blockbuster Telugu film, Arjun Reddy. Recently, T-Series, the producer of the film along with Shahid Kapoor shared the title and poster of the Hindi remake marking the beginning of its shoot.
Shahid shared a picture on Instagram revealing the title of the film. Here, have a look:
The picture was captioned:
#ArjunReddy was loved and appreciated now it is time for #KabirSingh! Get reddy to see him in 2019.👊 @kiaraaliaadvani @sandeepreddy.vanga#BhushanKumar @muradkhetani#KrishanKumar @firstname.lastname@example.org #Cine1Studios@kabirsinghmovie
The Bollywood remake of Arjun Reddy will be called ‘Kabir Singh’ which just went on floors this Sunday and the team seems to be ecstatic about it. In the movie, Shahid will play a Punjabi boy whose life in the movie will be shown in four phases. The first will throw light on Kabir Singh as a college student, second will take us through his professional life, third will show us how he falls into a self-destructive path and the fourth phase will talk about Kabir Singh’s active reformation.
Kiara Advani will be seen opposite Shahid Kapoor in the movie. She last appeared in a T-Series music video, Urvashi alongside his Kabir Singh co-star which went on to become a chartbuster. She shared a picture from the song and its caption reads,
“Wait for it. This is not a still from the Arjun Reddy remake, but our film shoot begins today. Wishing the team an amazing start. All the best team Arjun Reddy, can’t wait to join you’ll super soon”
When Shahid and the Kabir Singh team shared the title and the first poster of the film online, Vijay Devarakonda, the Arjun Reddy lead actor took to Twitter and congratulated Shahid. He tweeted,
“Kabir Singh! Arjun Reddy wishes you the best 🙂 @imvangasandeep – Full power to you my man.”
Earlier when Shahid was asked about his reaction on doing Arjun Reddy Hindi remake, he said,
“I was surprised when I saw the original film because it is unlike the kind of film one watches usually. It has been done so well and doing it for the second time, I don’t know, but I wanted to try. It is a great oppurtunity for me.”
He further added,
“I loved the emotional arc of the character, played by Vijay down south, and he did a fantastic job on it. The director was so real, raw and honest in his representation of that journey that I was drawn towards it.”
Earlier the shoot of the film was supposed to begin in September but it got postponed to October because apparently Shahid is supposed to carry a particular look for the film. About Shahid’s look, a source said,
“Shahid needs to get a particular look before he starts filming. He has to grow out his hair and beard a lot more than what it is right now. It’s something he has not been seen like before, so it was a collective decision taken by the actor, director and producers to kick-start the romantic drama in October.”
Well, now the shoot of the movie has begun and as per the description of Shahid’s look, we believe, he would be sporting a rugged look. Shahid Kapoor and Kiara Advani’s chemistry was crackling in the T-Series music video single and we hope it would be the same in this movie.
