My job is to represent the character honestly and to play him how he is and its audience job to tell me which part they liked and which they didn’t. See good and bad are parts of life but the most important is the intent”
“Intent is the most important when I do a character. And I think Kabir Singh has very pure intent but he is flawed. He behaves in different ways, and that is why he is a character is probably worth watching on the big screen because he has the ability to surprise you and he has the ability to make an impact. Because he is and that is how I saw it” added Shahid Kapoor.
