I Smoked 20 cigarettes per day : Shahid Kapoor
We all know the trend and arena created by the Sandeep Reddy Vanga with "Arjun Reddy" in the Telugu states. Remaking this film, Kollywood failed with "Varma" which is being reshot.
The latest teaser of "Kabir Singh", the remake of Arjun Reddy in Bollywood by it’s original filmmaker Sandeep Reddy Vanga starring Shahid Kapoor and Kiara Advani was really good and got a nod in Tollywood too.
Talking about playing the titular role in 'Kabir Singh', actor Shahid Kapoor said that he smoked almost 20 cigarettes a day and revealed how playing Kabir was difficult for him. To bring the original flavor one should do some hard things. This title role is one of those.
“I don’t endorse smoking at all. However, the role required it, as the protagonist uses it to channel his angst and rage. It'd take me close to two hours to shower and get rid of the smell before I could return home to my children," he added. Shahid has been shooting for this film in Mumbai, Delhi, and Mussoorie for the past few months.
