Among the early watchers was casting director Mukesh Chhabra, who called it Shahid Kapoor's best performance so far. He also praised the film's soundtrack. His applause was promptly acknowledged by Shahid.

He said, "#KabirSingh is a must watch movie!!! @shahidkapoor's best performance so far. Mind blowing.Aur @Advani_Kiara kya baath hai. An absolutely trippy film. The audience is going to go mad. The background score just compliments everything. Superb Direction by Sandeep Reddy Vanga. (sic)"

A Dubai based entertainment journalist, Umair Sandhu wrote, "Saw #KabirSingh at Censor Board ! What a BOMBASTIC Film ! @shahidkapoor Stole the Show all the way. What a Film!".

Other reactions, such as, "Whattt a movie! Hope Shahid will be superstar after the super success of #KabirSingh. Best ever performance", and, "In Kabir Singh, Shahid Kapoor is menacing, not likeable.

Shahid Kapoor has undergone immense transformation to portray the role of Kabir Singh as he had to look like a young college student and also had to nail the look of a struggling alcoholic doctor.

Recently, in an interview with mid-day, Shahid Kapoor revealed why he felt compelled to take up Kabir Singh, which is a remake of the Telugu film Arjun Reddy. He said, "I watched Arjun Reddy and loved it. It ticked most of the boxes for me as an actor. He is an emotionally distraught man. Vijay [Deverakonda] and I had our own take on being a self-destructive surgeon. Because it is a love story, the inherent emotion is very beautiful. It has its dark moments but overall the film gives a viewer a wholesome experience. I was sucked in by Arjun Reddy."

A T-Series and Cine1 Studios presentation, the film is directed by Sandeep Reddy Vanga produced by Bhushan Kumar, Murad Khetani, Krishan Kumar and Ashwin Varde. Kabir Singh releases on June 21, 2019.
