The trailer of Shahid Kapoor‘s Kabir Singh released on May 13 and received a lot of positive response. In just two days, the trailer has received more than 24 million views. During the launch of the trailer, Shahid slammed a reporter who asked Kiara about the number of kissing scenes in the film.

When the reporter asked Kiara the same, she smiled and just asked him to watch the trailer. Shahis interrupted and said, “ussi ka paisa hai.” He further went on to ask the reporter for how long has he been single to ask such questions. Shahid said, there is more to it than just kissing scenes in the film.

The trailer had scenes exactly the same as Arjun Reddy. Earlier when asked about the same, Shahid called Arjun and Kabir cousins. He told Mid-Day, “Vijay Deverakonda was spectacular in the film. If you ask me, Kabir Singh and Arjun Reddy are cousins; they are not the same person”.

His role in the film looked a lot like his character from Udta Punjab, fierce and rough. While the Padmaavat actor plays the lead role in the film, Kiara will be seen playing the role of Preeti, Kabir’s love interest.

Shahid never fails to impress the audience with his intriguing performance. In the trailer, you can see Shahid as an aggressive young guy who falls in love with a college fresher.

Kabir Singh is the Hindi remake of Telugu hit film Arjun Reddy, starring Vijay Deverakonda. Both the films have been directed by Sandeep Vanga. The male protagonist in the film finds himself unable to handle his life after his girlfriend marries another man due to family pressure. The film also highlights the issues of mental illness and caste differences. Kabir Singh is set to hit the screens on June 21.
