Shahid Kapoor is an actor who loves to experiment with his roles, be it the Chivalrous Rana Ratan Singh in Padmaavat, drug addict Tommy Singh in Udta Punjab or the cute guy next door Aditya in Jab We Met. This time he has taken the role of Kabir Singh in the Hindi remake of the Telugu movie ‘Arjun Reddy’! The trailer is out and Shahid can be seen in angry, young, heartbroken and in an intoxicated look.
The trailer gives a sneak peak into the life of Dr. Kabir Rajveer Singh.
The trailer begins with Kabir enquiring about a girl at a clinic on the phone, following which he puts ice in his jeans. So we know the reason behind Shahid’s intense looks too!
Throughout the two-minute long trailer, one finds that Kabir is angry, very angry and that is due to the way his relationship ends with Preeti, essayed by Kiara Advani.
Be it as a person who is letting his life slip away high on drugs and other substances, or someone who is teaching Preeti, or when he runs after his maid just because she broke a glass or when he is fighting for his love or when he asks Preeti if she has the same madness for him as he has; there are many shades of Kabir in the trailer.
After acing in intense projects like "Kaminey" and "Haider" , Shahid gets into the skin of Kabir effortlessly.
Shahid Kapoor's Kabir Singh avatar is stubborn, self-destructive and very angry. But not without a cause. He wins over as a lover boy when Kiara asks him what does he like in her, and he says, "I love the way you breathe". He is convincing as an angry young man when he shows his rage, and as a man with a broken heart trying to nurse it with alcohol.
"Kabir Singh" is a remake of the popular Telugu hit film "Arjun Reddy" that originally starred Vijay Deverakonda and Shalini Pandey. Produced by Bhushan Kumar, Murad Khetani, Krishan Kumar and Ashwin Varde, it is set to release on June 21. The remake is written and directed by Sandeep Vanga.
People liked the trailer and appreciated Shahid’s acting ,
But, though the trailer was appreciated by some, others on the twitter train caught on to it with their memes
In the trailer Shahid says that "he is not a rebel without a cause". And sure enough, one would find whether it's a worthy cause once the movie is out. But, surely it’ll be interesting to see how much justice Shahid does to the remake.
