Shahid Kapoor has now announced the title as Kabir Singh.

Kabir Singh, which is a T-Series and Cine1 Studios production, stars Shahid Kapoor in the title role. The film is directed by Sandeep Vanga, who was also the director of the Telugu version. Kiara Advani plays the female lead in the film.

The makers of the film kept the film’s title very closely guarded over the last two months.

As director Sandeep Vanga said in a statement, “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.”

The film will be shot extensively in Mumbai, Delhi and Musoorie. Shahid will sport four different looks in the film and has been preparing for it over the last three months.

Workshops with all the actors are in full swing currently. “It’s all about taking Kabir Singh to the next level,” said Vanga.

Kabir Singh is produced by Bhushan Kumar, Murad Khetani, Krishan Kumar and Ashwin Varde. The shoot commenced in Mumbai a few days ago.
