One of the most versatile actors of Bollywood is at it again with his upcoming movie Kabir Singh. A remake of the hit Telugu movie Arjun Reddy, the movie has already garnered quite a buzz as comparisons between the two started. From the acting to the shots, various similarities have been drawn between Shahid and Vijay Deverakonda, who starred in the Telugu version. So, we asked him a question about one of the similarities.
In an exclusive interview, Shahid was asked about the red couch, which is a common sight in both Arjun Reddy and Kabir Singh. The actor had this to say on this, “There are certain things that the filmmaker has very passionately felt about. So, the color red is something he has used thematically. There’s a red cigarette in his mouth even when you see the shot where the gate opens and you see Kabir for the first moment. That is the only shot he has a red cigarette in the entire film. So if you look even closer, Kabir always utilizes a red flashlight and then the red couch is there. That’s what it is.”
The official trailer of Kabir Singh is here:

The movie is directed by Sandeep Reddy Vanga, who also directed the original version and thus we know what Shahid is talking about.
Vijay Deverakonda on these comparisons had said, “My dear friend Sandeep, who directed me in Arjun Reddy, is now done with his Hindi remake, and I can’t wait to see how it has turned out. Having known Sandeep, he likely changed the initial script-wonderful as it was-to start with an interesting fresh note.”
The actor also wishes Shahid all the best and wants his film to be a hit as he said, “I’ve known Shahid to be a good actor since Ishq Vishq and I’m sure Kabir Singh has done an outstanding job too. I want the movie to be a huge blockbuster.”
The movie will hit the screen on 21st June, 2019.
