Shahid Kapoor talks about smoking in Kabir Singh

Although Shahid Kapoor has been a mainstream star for a long time, the 2019 blockbuster 'Kabir Singh' turned him into a box office superpower. More than just a hit film, 'Kabir Singh' is surely going to be a highlight of Shahid Kapoor's career. However, the message of the film has often been misinterpreted by youngsters. Many have adopted traits of Shahid's character like smoking and heavy drinking which were in the film to show his self destructive tendency.

Shahid himself had a lot of trouble due to the smoking scenes. Apparently, the actor used to smoke about 20 cigarettes a day for filming and it affected his health as well as his time with the family.

In a recent statement, Shahid said, "I don’t endorse smoking at all. However, the role required it, as the protagonist uses it to channel his angst and rage. It wasn’t easy, and it came to a point where I smoked almost 20 cigarettes a day. It would take me close to two hours to shower and get rid of the smells before I could return home to my children.”
