“I did a screen test for Kabir Singh and Sandeep sir liked it. “It was Arjun Kapoor who told me to watch this film because he knew I was doing Telugu movies at that time. “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. Kabir is not obsessive, he is a protective lover. The film went through casting changes and one day it came back to me. “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.

One should not do what Kabir is doing. More Explained
