'Kabir Singh not propagating self-destructive love'
Produced by Bhushan Kumar, Murad Khetani, Krishan Kumar and Ashwin Varde, the movie is set to release on June 21
Mumbai: Kiara Advani says her upcoming film Kabir Singh does not glorify and promote "self-destructive" love.
The film tells the story of a young successful but alcoholic surgeon (Shahid Kapoor) who goes through an intense heartbreak after the love of his life (Kiara) is married off to someone else.
"Through this film, we are trying to say do not go on a self-destruction path as it is not good for you and your loved ones. We are not propagating or glamorising that. One should not do what Kabir is doing."
"For me, it is ok to be a protective lover but there is a thin line between becoming an obsessive lover and a protective one. Kabir is not obsessive, he is a protective lover. He loves her a lot and she is head over heels in love with him. It is a passionate, intense, innocent and raw love story," said Kiara.
Kiara plays the role of a medical student in the film, directed by Sandeep Vanga Reddy. It is a remake of the director's Telugu blockbuster Arjun Reddy, which starred Vijay Devarakonda and Shalini Pandey.
