Kabir Singh is a phase in everyone’s life: Shahid Kapoor


Tommy Singh is an empty guy who is self-obsessed. “Kabir is the opposite. “You have to channelise all kinds of negative emotions and turn them into positive, otherwise they can take you down, heartbreak being one of them. He loves so purely that he actually destroys himself in that emotion, becomes self destructive.”

Remake of the Telugu hit Arjun Reddy, Kabir Singh is directed by Sandeep Reddy Vanga. I don’t like to indulge in self pity, it’s very dangerous.”
While the 38-year-old has often played dark characters, Kabir Singh is an obviously flawed man, the one with anger and territorial issues. That doesn’t help because you’re giving yourself a wrong message. ‘Haider’ and ‘Udta Punjab’ we’re in dark places, Kabir Singh isn’t at all. He’s an edgy character. We do that ourselves also, telling ourselves we are bad in our low phase. “As a subject matter in totality, it’s a happy film. You’ve to learn to channelise these energies, if you can’t, you become Kabir Singh!”
The Haider actor says everybody breaks at some point but it’s one’s call to choose that to “define that moment as your permanent reality.”

“You need to tell yourself that you’re a nice person and will come out of this bad phase and find yourself.”
Humanising flawed characters can be tricky and the actor says he doesn’t need to do that. Sometimes reality is a bit too real. “They are real, I need to just represent them. Co-starring Kiara Advani, the film is set to release on June 21. It’s romantic and it has its dark parts but obviously what will attract you in those promos are these edgy scenes but the film has a lot more going for it.”
Drawing a parallel with his drug addict rapper Tommy Singh in Udta Punjab, Shaid says, Kabir Singh’s reasons to do things aren’t selfish. “I’ve had my very intense, self destructive, heartbreak, angsty moments, where I’ve not been in control,” Shahid told PTI. He’s only thinking about himself and realises later that he needs to do something for someone else. He is a phase in everyone’s life and that how I connected with the character.”
Shahid says as an actor, he is required to channelise negative emotions, including heartbreak. “I have to find why he’s doing what he is doing otherwise I have no understanding of the character I’m doing. When asked how does he approach a character like him, Shahid says, “by not judging him.”
“He’s real. The first thing I do is to try and run away from it. Advertising
