Kabir Singh

Tara Sutaria was initially announced as the female lead, but left due to a delay in the filming of her debut release Student of the Year 2 causing scheduling conflicts. The makers then hired Kiara Advani to play the role of Preeti, after Vanga saw her performance in M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story (2016). Amit Sharma, who appeared as Amit in the Telugu original, was chosen to reprise his role.

After the success of the Telugu film Arjun Reddy (2017), its writer and director Sandeep Vanga wanted to remake it in Hindi with Ranveer Singh. When it did not work out, he approached Shahid Kapoor. However, producers Murad Khetani and Ashwin Varde of Cine1 Studios, who acquired the remake rights for Hindi, wanted Arjun Kapoor to play the male lead.

Bhushan and Krishan Kumar of T-Series also produced the film, while Vinod Bhanushali received a co-producer credit. The dialogue was written by Siddharth–Garima. Santhana Krishnan Ravichandran was selected as the cinematographer, and Aarif Sheikh as editor.
