The much-talked-about Hindi remake of the superhit Telugu film Arjun Reddy (2017) has locked its title. Headlined by Shahid Kapoor and Kiara Advani, the movie will be called Kabir Singh.
The original film, which had Vijay Deverakonda and Shalini Pandey essaying the lead roles, tells the story of a medical student who falls head over heels in love with his junior and how the relationship changes the former after the latter decides to marry some other person.
To be produced by Bhushan Kumar’s T-Series Films and Cine1 Studios Production, Kabir Singh will be helmed by Sandeep Reddy Vanga who also directed the Telugu version in 2017.
Shedding light on what led the makers to rename the film as Kabir Singh, director Vanga says, “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,” he added.
To be shot in Mumbai, Delhi and Mussoorie, Kabir Singh will arrive in cinemas on 21st June, 2019.
