Shahid Kapoor and Kiara Advani are gearing up to entertain their excited fans with their upcoming intense romance drama, Kabir Singh. The upcoming film is one of the most highly anticipated movies of the year. It is essentially a remake of Telugu blockbuster, Arjun Reddy. Arjun Reddy starred Vijay Deverakonda and Shalini Pandey. As the clock ticks on there are literally only a few remaining days left for the film to hit the big screens. Luckily for those waiting anxiously, the film has finally received its certification!
Since Arjun Reddy received ‘A’ certificate, it has come as no wonder that the Hindi edition of Kabir Singh has been given the ‘A’ certificate as well. The length of the romantic drama is approximately two hours and fifty four minutes. But, speculations are running high as various parties are discussing whether the ‘A’ certification will affect the family audiences and footfalls of the film. In response to this, producer Murad Khetani states his opinion: “I don’t think so. Since it is a film for youth, the youth will go to watch it. Anyway, it is not a film for a family audience and kids. So, I do not think it will make much difference.” The thought process behind this is also supported by the fact that Arjun Reddy became a blockbuster with an ‘A’ certificate. Therefore, the producers and the rest of the team are expecting the same from Kabir Singh. Murad Khetani further elaborates, “Arjun Reddy was such a cult film. So, we didn’t want to tamper the film for getting the U/A certificate. So, we have retained the essence of the film.”
Helmed by the original directed Sandeep Reddy Vanga, Kabir Singh, a T-Series and Cine1 Studios presentation, is produced by Bhushan Kumar, Murad Khetani, Krishan Kumar and Ashwin Varde. It is scheduled to release on June 21.
