Lately, Kiara Advani has been in the headlines for her Shahid Kapoor-starrer Kabir Singh. The up and coming star’s character in the film was revealed recently, which sees her in a de-glam avatar of a shy college girl, Preeti. The original Telugu hit, Arjun Reddy, showed Preeti’s role as the most interesting yet grappling one. However, if there is one budding actor who can push boundaries, it’s Kiara. And, even Shahid agrees! He even spoke about her being a hardworking and disciplined young lady. To understand the true nature of her part, Kiara went to a university hostel in India and spent time with the students and teachers to get the real feel of her upcoming role.
Having never experienced dorm life, she took it in her stride and signed up at a leading hostel in India. She wanted to understand how teenagers live in the dormitory and so she took the plunge and visited them for a week.
Recalling her first-ever experience, Kiara said, “Since I’m from Mumbai and also went to college in Mumbai I had never stayed in a hostel before but my character Preeti stays in one. I really wanted to understand how life in a hostel is for young students and so I decided to stay in one for a few days. The experience was absolutely enriching and it helped me while I interacted with the students.”
Well, with such kind of rigorous preparation, we won’t be surprised if she knocks it out of the park with her forthcoming venture. The stars rounded of their final leg of Kabir Singh promotions this week. Shahid essays a surgeon going into self-destruction mode after a sudden breakup with his girlfriend. He mentioned that while he doesn't usually prefer to star in remakes, he made an exception this time around because the character connected with him.
