Shahid Kapoor shares ‘Kabir Singh’ look, shaves off beard

For a long time Shahid Kapoor donned a thick beard but now he has gone rid of it for his upcoming film, ‘Kabir Singh’. The first look of ‘Kabir Singh’ was unveiled and Shahid is seen in clean shaved.

The versatile actor took to his social media account to share the first look of ‘Kabir Singh’. He captioned it# "On set. #KabirSingh."

‘Kabir Singh’ is a Hindi remake of Telugu film being directed by Sandeep Vanga, who helmed the original film, Arjun Reddy as well. The film stars Kiara Advani in the female lead.

The film revolves around a troubled and brilliant medical student who falls in love with a fellow student. But after the split, he leads to the path of self destruction.

The Telugu film's lead actor Vijay Deverakonda received huge accolades for the portrayal of the character.

The film will be shot in Delhi and Mumbai.

Mumbai Mirror quotes a source as saying, “The protagonist is a Punjabi like Shahid who is best suited for the part because he emulates both power and vulnerability.”

Talking about the film’s title, Sandeep Vanga said, “When we started work on the Hindi script, it was a very exciting journey. Kabir Singh, as the protagonist’s name, came naturally, considering the character’s graph. Kabir Singh has the same punch and madness of Arjun Reddy.”

The film is slated to release on June 21, 2019.
