Juggling his medical profession and love life, Kabir's character is anything but perfect. Aggressive, headstrong and rough, Shahid's character is seen unabashedly indulging in a variety of drugs in the teaser. Kiara Advani features as the female lead in the film.
The narrative charts the journey of Kabir as he slowly descends into a realm of self-harm once his love interest gets married to a different man.
"Since it is the same director of the original film, I'm sure it will be really good and I'm excited to watch it. I'm waiting for it," said Devarakonda about the remake in a recent interview.
Kabir Singh is scheduled to hit the theatres on 21 June, this year.
