MUMBAI: The much-anticipated remake of the Telugu blockbuster Arjun Reddy has been a topic of discussion ever since it was announced. There has been a lot of speculation about what the film’s title would be for months now.
Finally, the wait is over. The Hindi remake of Arjun Reddy starring Shahid Kapoor and Kiara Advani has been titled Kabir Singh. Sandeep Vanga is directing the film and he was also the director of the Telugu version. Director Sandeep Vanga revealed the reason behind the title.
