Shahid Kapoor is currently busy with the promotions of his upcoming film ‘Kabir Singh’ that is an official remake of Vijay Deverakonda‘s Telugu blockbuster ‘Arjun Reddy’. In the movie, he plays the role of a surgeon who hits the bottle and goes on the path of self-destruction after a messy break-up with his girlfriend. During a launch event of the song ‘Mere Sohneya’ from the movie, Shahid said he could never do long distance relationships and even shared the very reason behind it.
When Shahid was asked for a piece of advice on long distance relationships, he shared,
“I could never do long distance relationships. I mean, what’s the point? I have always felt like… if I am in love with someone, I would want to share as much time as I can with her but there are people who have done it.”
He admitted that when it comes to Long-distance Relationships, he is really bad at them.
“I have friends who managed to get through it, they have gotten married and they are really happy, so there are difficult phases one needs to get through in long distance relationships, and I was really bad with it.”
When asked to share a heartbreak, Shahid shared,
“I’ve had my very intense, self-destructive, heartbreak, angsty moments, where I’ve not been in control.” Speaking about how he connected with Kabir Singh, the actor added, “But that feeling of falling apart, of self-destruction for not being able to deal with loss… Only from great love can come great anger. It is a phase in everyone’s life and that how I connected with the character.”
When Kiara Advani was asked about her favorite moments in this love story. She said,
“The most beautiful thing about the love story is that it is a campus love story and it starts in college. All of us have been in relationships, in love and had our first crush when we were in school or college. Our (Shahid and Kiara’s) dynamic is senior and junior, pretty much like we are in this industry. Kabir is senior in the college, so he is protective, sweet, caring, senior sort of a boyfriend. That is the equation we share in the film.”
