Shahid Kapoor Reveals Mira Rajput Convinced Him to Sign Kabir Singh

Shahid Kapoor who is probably having the best time of his life with his all-time highest grossing movie Kabir Singh, revealed that it was indeed his wife Mira Rajput who pushed him to go for this role. “She said a role like Kabir Singh should be there in my filmography,” said Shahid.

After the movie recently hit Rs250 crore mark – highest ever for any of Shahid’s movies – the actor took to Instagram to thank his followers for ‘loving the most flawed character’ of his career.


” I have never ever felt so thankful. The most flawed character I have ever played. Has become my most loved. Indeed indian cinema and the audience has come a long way. More power to brave choices. More power to you all for your maturity and humanness. You have given me wings to fly,” penned down Shahid.

However, the actor later revealed that it was his wife Mira who is the woman behind success of this man.

“She was always very optimistic and believed that this is a character I should have in my filmography. We had watched Arjun Reddy together and she loved the director’s work and felt that the character had potential,” said Shahid in an interview recently.


“And if we were able to get it [the character] right, it’d be a very special character in my life. So, Mira was very happy when she watched the film,” he added.

Kabir Singh is a remake of Telgu film Arjun Reddy directed by Sandeep Vanga. The movie revolves around love story of a surgeon who turns into alcoholic and drug addict when his girlfriend leaves him. Paired alongside Shahid is Kiara Advani and the movie, despite its controversial portrayal of misogyny, is largely successful at the box office.
