Regarding her upcoming movie Kabir Singh, Kiara Advani has said recently that it is not promoting the ‘self destructive’ kind of love. The movie is also about an alcoholic surgeon named Kabir Singh played by Shahid Kapoor and his heart break after his girlfriend decides to marry someone else.
On the occasion, Kiara has said “Through this film, we are trying to say do not go on a self-destruction path as it is not good for you and your loved ones. We are not propagating that or glamorising that in any way. One should not do what Kabir is doing……For me, it is ok to be a protective lover but there is a thin line between becoming an obsessive lover and a protective one. Kabir is not obsessive, he is a protective lover. He loves her a lot and she is head over heels in love with him. It is a passionate, intense, innocent and raw love story.”
In this movie, Kiara will be seen as a medical student as well named Pretti. Kabir Singh is directed by Sandeep Vanga Reddy which is a remake of Telugu movie named Arjun Reddy by the same director. Lead in Arjun Reddy has been played by Shalini Pandey and Vijay Devarakonda.
Being casted in the movie Kabir Singh, Kiara Advani has said “I did a screen test for ‘Kabir Singh’ and Sandeep sir liked it. Things were almost locked but then for reasons best known it did not work out then. The film went through casting changes and one day it came back to me. I did ask the director why cast me again? He said because ‘I only see you’. He was convinced that only I could do this film. I truly believe films are in your destiny.”
Later, Kiara has also said that she has watched the Telugu version Arjun Reddy after it being recommended by Arjun Kapoor. She has said “It was Arjun Kapoor who told me to watch this film because he knew I was doing Telugu movies at that time. And I had truly loved it……A few months later I read about a Hindi remake being in the pipeline. For me to be part of it and being directed by the original director for the Hindi version was important. He (Sandeep) has stayed true to the original film.”
Release of Kabir Singh is scheduled on 21st June.
