BOLLYWOOD: The teaser of Kabir Singh, the Hindi remake of Telugu blockbuster Arjun Reddy, received an overwhelming response from the audience. In fact, Shahid Kapoor received a call from Baahubali star Prabhas, who praised his performance.
Shahid plays Kabir Singh, a hot-headed surgeon who becomes an alcoholic and drug addict after his girlfriend marries someone else. Talking about the call he received from Prabhas, he said, “I spoke to Prabhas and he was very kind. He is Mahendra Baahubali for us so, it was really cool and encouraging to get such kind words from him because the Hindi audience might not know that Arjun Reddy is an iconic Telugu film and it received a lot of love from the audience.”
The actor was interacting with the media on the sidelines of the GeoSpa Global Spa India Awards on Wednesday.
Since Kabir Singh is the remake of Arjun Reddy, which was loved by critics as well as the audience, the expectations are high. “There are some films of mine which people say that they shouldn’t be made. They say you shouldn’t touch something that is so good. If someone tells me to play characters of some of my previous films then, I might not be able to do it again but honestly the same filmmaker (director Sandeep Vanga) wanted to make it and I find the role very exciting,” Shahid said.
