Happy with the cash registers ringing and receiving constant applause for the film, Shahid Kapoor penned a heartfelt note for his fans as a token of gratitude. He shared a video comprising stills from the film and making a Shahid Kapoor-image with the Box Office numbers. His note read: "Your love is so overwhelming words will always fall short. Thank you for understanding him forgiving him and loving him with all your heart. We all fall apart. And we all must strive to rise from our faults. To be better. To be wiser. To be kinder. He is flawed. So are we all. You didn't judge him you experienced him. You understood him. I have never ever felt so thankful. The most flawed character I have ever played. Has become my most loved..."
Writing further about Indian audiences' taste, Shahid Kapoor wrote, "Indeed Indian cinema and the audience has come a long way. More power to brave choices. More power to you all for your maturity and humanness. You have given me wings to fly. To not only be burdened by the need to be loved to be a star but to have the courage to be hated in equal measure to be an actor. Here's to cinema mirroring life. To protagonists who don't have to be restricted by their goodness and can be human and imperfect. There is perfection in imperfection and that is the beauty and the challenge of this human life. Thank you. Again and again. You all are the heroes of this story."

Kiara Advani wore a printed dress with a thigh-high slit as she arrived for Kabir Singh's success bash at a restaurant in Bandra. Kiara played Preeti a simple college girl in the film. In an interview talking about the film, Kiara said she is comfortable being in front of the camera without any make-up. Kiara had a no make-up policy for director Sandeep Vanga's film Kabir Singh. "I'm a directors' actor, so if the director has a certain vision for the character's look then I go with that," Kiara said in a statement.
Kiara Advani further added, "Preeti's simplicity and innocence is what makes Kabir fall head over heels for her. Sandeep Sir wanted to capture that purity and also make me look like a 19-year-old first year student. I'm comfortable being in front of the camera without any make-up, so it felt effortless and the plus point of not having to reach extra early on set for hair and make-up was another plus."
The film also starred Soham Majumdar, Arjan Bajwa, Suresh Oberoi, Nikita Dutta and Kamini Kaushal in pivotal roles. Produced by Bhushan Kumar, Murad Khetani, Krishan Kumar, and Ashwin Varde, the film released on June 21.
