The actor further added that he could connect to the character and film which eventually stayed back with him. "I connected to the character, I connected to the film. It stayed with me. The reason I did Kabir Singh was that I strongly connected with it. Also, since the Telugu audience loved this film, I got a chance to bring this film to the national audience, so it is a good opportunity for me," Shahid quoted.
