RanaDaggubati has now made interesting comments on Kabir Singh’spefomnce in Hyderabad, adding that the film earned most from the previews in Hyderabad. He goes on to say, “Earlier, one didn’t hear of what’s happening there (South cinema) and now due to remakes, it is all one. A friend of mine told me some interesting information – that when the opening day [figures] of Kabir Singh had come out, the night before, for the previews, the highest previews were sold in Hyderabad. I was like this is very strange. The city that has watched this film fully [Arjun Reddy, the Telugu original that Kabir Singh is a remake of], had to watch this first. That’s something very interesting. That’s like The Jungle Book effect, you know who the Lion King is, but you still want to watch it to experience it. But this is what good stories do and hold for you to come back again.”
