Kabir Singh is an official remake of Sandeep Reddy Vanga’s Telugu-language blockbuster Arjun Reddy, starring Vijay Devarakonda. Apart from the Hindi version, a Tamil remake, titled Varma starring Dhruv Vikram, Shalini Pandy and Priya Anand under the direction Bala was called off and now is being made by Vanga’s assistant, Gireesaaya titled as ‘Adithya Varma.’
Kabir Singh is Shahid Kapoor’s first film pairing with Kiara Advani. Introducing the Kabir Singh teaser, Shahid Kapoor said: "I'm not a rebel without a cause. This is ME!" The teaser stops at just an introduction of Kabir and Preethi when he kisses her and that becomes their little secret.
Many felt that with Sandeep Reddy Vanga directing the Hindi version as well, maybe that original flavor of the film got retained. Whatever it may, Kabir Singh is looking as promising as Arjun Reddy and we have to see how the film will be faring at the box office as it releases on June 21st.
