Shahid Kapoor: I don’t endorse smoking at all

Shahid Kapoor is currently busy promoting Kabir Singh, which releases next week. Kabir Singh is the Hindi remake of Telugu film, Arjun Reddy and the character seems to have the kind of temper we haven’t seen in Hindi Cinema in recent times. Kapoor’s character is a raging alcoholic, who also smokes, while Kapoor doesn’t.

Talking about the same, the Jab We Met actor told a leading daily, “I don’t endorse smoking at all. However, the role required it, as the protagonist uses it to channel his angst and rage. It wasn’t easy, and it came to a point where I smoked almost 20 cigarettes a day.”

Also starring Kiara Advani, Kabir Singh has been directed by Sandeep Vanga.
