Shahid Kapoor recalls working on Kabir Singh 

'Kabir Singh' turned out to be the biggest film of Shahid Kapoor's career. The film was a blockbuster hit and the character became really iconic. As the film finished 2 years of its theatrical release, Shahid Kapoor talked about his experience of working on it. Since Shahid's personality is polar opposite of his character, he had to work extra hard to get into Kabir's mindspace.

Shahid revealed, "I had a hard time while shooting Kabir Singh because I had to play an alcoholic and somebody who is into substance abuse. I had to smoke beedis and I was a father coming back to my kids. It was challenging as there were different looks and headspaces to Kabir Singh. We tend to give importance to physical changes in actors. That’s an easy part to do. The difficult part is to get into the character’s heart and soul and try to understand why they are doing something. To get into the head of a guy who is erratic, aggressive, violent and emotional was challenging."

When asked to state the difference between himself and Kabir, Shahid said, "I am not violent. I can’t straight up go and talk to a girl like Kabir does. That’s not in my personality. I am pretty shy around girls.” There is one thing, however, that Shahid revealed he and Kabir Singh had in common. “He is not social, which I can relate to a certain degree, because I am told I am not social.”
