Speaking about the world of Kabir Singh, Shahid Kapoor, Kiara Advani, and Sandeep Reddy Vanga opened up about what made the film unique and special on its own right.
Shahid Kapoor talked about how Kabir Singh was not remade because Arjun Reddy did well down South, but there was more to the film. He said that there was already a lot of curiosity regarding what the film was about, and why people were talking about it. "So the challenge was how do we not lose out on everything that was adding to Arjun Reddy and how do we create a new identity without losing the soul or core of the original film," said Shahid. Director Sandeep Reddy opened up about how Arjun Reddy was a story that should be revisited and should stay in the minds of the people for a while. He talked about how watching Shahid's previous films made him want to make another version of Arjun Reddy.

When asked Kiara what drew her to the role, she said, "I haven't seen a love story like this made in Hindi cinema in a very long time. Just to get a love story like this was a dream."
