Shahid Kapoor revealed the TRUE motivation to play this character in Kabir Singh!
Shahid Kapoor is riding high on the success of Kabir Singh and why not because as we speak, Kabir Singh is going all strong at the box office, having zoomed past Rs 250 crores mark. Although Sandeep Vanga’s Kabir Singh is a remake of blockbuster Telugu film Arjun Reddy, fans have totally loved Kabir Singh starring Shahid Kapoor and Kiara Advani.
Shahid Kapoor is a happy man since it is his career’s biggest hit and in an interview, he opened up about the fact that it was wifey Mira Rajput who convinced him to take up the role of Kabir Singh, which according to Shahid, is one of the most flawed characters that he has ever played.
In an interview, Shahid revealed that his wife Mira Rajput encouraged him to take up Kabir Singh. “She was always very optimistic and believed that this is a character I should have in my filmography. We had watched Arjun Reddy together and she loved the director’s work and felt that the character had potential. And if we were able to get it right, it’d be a very special character in my life. So, Mira was very happy when she watched the film,” informed Shahid. In the film, Shahid plays a surgeon, who becomes an alcoholic and drug addict after the love of his life leaves him.
