Kabir Singh not propagating self-destructive love: Kiara Advani

  • Print


Kiara Advani says her upcoming film Kabir Singh does not glorify and promote ‘self-destructive’ love. The film tells the story of a young successful but alcoholic surgeon (Shahid Kapoor) who goes through an intense heartbreak after the love of his life (Kiara) is married off to someone else.
“Through this film, we are trying to say do not go on a self-destruction path as it is not good for you and your loved ones. We are not propagating that or glamorising that in any way. One should not do what Kabir is doing. For me, it is ok to be a protective lover but there is a thin line between becoming an obsessive lover and a protective one. Kabir is not obsessive, he is a protective lover. He loves her a lot and she is head over heels in love with him. It is a passionate, intense, innocent and raw love story,” Kiara told PTI.  
Kiara plays the role of a medical student Preeti in the film, directed by Sandeep Vanga Reddy. It is a remake of the director’s Telugu blockbuster Arjun Reddy, which starred Vijay Devarakonda and Shalini Pandey.
Kabir Singh underwent a lot of casting changes from Ranveer Singh to Arjun Kapoor and Tara Sutaria for female lead being considered for the film, but it was Shahid and Kiara were eventually finalised.  
According to Kiara, Sandeep approached her through a casting agent after watching her performance in Telugu film Bharat Ane Nenu, in which she starred opposite Mahesh Babu.  “I did a screen test for Kabir Singh and Sandeep sir liked it. Things were almost locked but then for reasons best known it did not work out then,” Kiara also said.
