Perhaps keeping with the new milieu and a pan-India audience in the mind, the makers have decided to rename the film as Kabir Singh.

"#ArjunReddy was loved and appreciated now it is time for #KabirSingh! Get reddy to see him in 2019,” Shahid tweeted as he shared the first poster. The actor started shooting for Kabir Singh from October 21 after his paternity break.
