In a recent interview during Kabir Singh’s promotions, when the media asked Shahid about his first heartbreak as his character in the film goes through something similar in certain parts, the actor admitted to have felt the same pain during his school time, when he was in his ninth standard and really liked a girl out of the only four girls that was there in his class. Apparently half of his class liked the same girl and the superstar wasn’t even in the top 5-6 people on her mind and she probably didn’t even know much about the actor.
Speaking exclusively about matters of heart, Shahid revealed that his character Kabir Singh goes through a self-destructive phase after his break-up in the film. When the actor was asked whether the same has happened in his real life, he revealed that he has also been there and done that. The actor added that certain parts of the film is about that and he has seen many of his friends been there, where they all at different points in life have fallen apart emotionally. He further added that everyone has gone through phases where they have felt rejected and not liked themselves or don’t feel happy about living. The actor concluded by saying that most of the people he knows including himself have been through those phases, where one goes through the most vulnerable time in life.
The film stars Kiara Advani and is an official remake of Arjun Reddy which is directed by director, Sandeep Reddy Vanga and is all set to release this Friday, 21st June.
