"Aa zamane aazmaale rooth ta nahi
Faaslon se hausla ye toot'ta nahi

So proud of you baby

Karan Johar:
"KABIR SINGH is about manic, relentless and reckless love and the experience of viewing the film is exactly the same! It’s relentless in its narrative leaves you reckless in emotion and you find yourself Manicly rooting for Kabir’s unabashed love for Preeti! This modern Ode to Devdas leaves you spellbound! It also makes you stand up and applaud the genius of @shahidkapoor’s portrayal of KABIR SINGH! He lives and breathes the character with insanity and abandon! It almost seems like he has pulled every bit of himself to portray the part! Brilliant!!!! @kiaraaliaadvani is just so lovely! Her vulnerability and silences win your heart and soul!! She is the sunshine and smile of the film…..it’s directorial brilliance all the way! Sandeep is a master storyteller and breaks all cinematic grammar to tell this tale of paagal passionate love!! Huge mention to Soham Majumdar who essays a pitch perfect best friend to Kabir! Go fall and rise in love with Kabir Singh! This ones a massive hit!!!!!"

For the film, we’ve heard about the process of prepping up and Shahid and Kiara did exactly that! As per sources, Shahid had to lose 8 kgs and then gain 10 kgs as he portrays the role of an alcoholic surgeon. His rugged look is just so on point, right?

Meanwhile, our Bombay girl Kiara planned to go live in a hostel to essay the role of Preeti as she is a fresher who lives in a hostel. Having lived and in Bombay forever, Kiara never had to step out as such. So, to capture the right essence, she decided to live in a hostel for a few days, interact with the students so she could adapt some of those shades while acting. According to her, this experience was absolutely enriching.

With such fine detailing, we’re sure you’re on your way to watch the film, aren’t you?
