Shahid Kapoor has once again raised the level of temperature with his role in is upcoming film, Kabir Singh. The role of Kabir Singh needed him to smoke cigarettes and beedis and also to pretend to snort cocaine, which was difficult for him to do so. He said that after the shoot, he had to shower for 2 long hours to get rid of the smell prior to going back to his home to his kids.
Speaking to one of the dailies, Shahid said “I don’t endorse smoking at all. However, the role required it, as the protagonist uses it to channel his angst and rage. It wasn’t easy, and it came to a point where I smoked almost 20 cigarettes a day. It would take me close to two hours to shower and get rid of the smells before I could return home to my children.”
Kabir Singh just like Arjun Reddy from the original Telugu film is intelligent but a flawed student of medical who consumes drugs and alcohol after he has to part ways from his girlfriend.
