After an intriguing and thrilling teaser, the fans have been eagerly waiting for the trailer of Kabir Singh, starring Shahid Kapoor and Kiara Advani, and now the makers have confirmed that the trailer will be out on 13th May.
Kabir Singh is written and directed by Sandeep Vanga. It is a remake of his own Telugu film Arjun Reddy (2017). It focuses on the title character, an alcoholic surgeon who goes on a self-destructive path after his ex-lover marries someone else.
Shahid Kapoor, who plays the titular role of Kabir Singh, dropped a new poster and trailer release date on his social media profile. He captioned it, “Trailer out on 13th May! #KabirSingh @Advani_Kiara @imvangasandeep @itsBhushanKumar @MuradKhetani #KrishanKumar @ashwinvarde @TSeries @Cine1Studios @KabirSinghMovie”
After the success of the Telugu film Arjun Reddy (2017), its writer and director Sandeep Vanga wanted to remake it in Hindi with Ranveer Singh. When it did not work out, he approached Shahid Kapoor.
However, producers Murad Khetani and Ashwin Varde of Cine1 Studios, who acquired the remake rights for Hindi, wanted Arjun Kapoor to play the male lead.
Disappointed, Vanga said, “I have come to know that the remake rights of Arjun Reddy have been sold and it would star Arjun Kapoor. I am caught in a dilemma, as I have already locked Shahid for the role. It’s a very embarrassing situation for me. I don’t know how I’ll face Shahid”
In April 2018, however, it was officially announced that Shahid Kapoor would star, with Vanga returning as director.
