It’s nearly been a year since Kiara Advani and Shahid Kapoor featured in the slick music video version of Urvashi Urvashi. The song was shot like a club number and featured some hip dance moves.

Soon after the video was released, the makers of Kabir Singh announced that Kiara and Shahid would be paired together for the film.

When we met Kiara recently, we asked her if her chemistry with Shahid in the trailer and songs of the Arjun Reddy remake, currently being appreciated, could be credited to the music video they did together before the film. Did it help them break the ice?

Kiara told us, “No! I know it all looks like a build-up -- a gorgeous music video followed by a romantic film -- but it was not like that. We had no idea that we will end up doing this film together. The video was shot over two days and we barely interacted at that time.

It was only after we came aboard this project that Shahid and I got to know each other. I think chemistry has to do with the way the film is written. If it’s in the script, it will come across and it will play out well. In our case, it’s all happened organically.

As we got deeper into our characters, we also started interacting more; I would actually play off his energy in the scenes. He made it simple for me to act and react in any given scene. We didn’t actually have a prep or a break-the-ice-moment. The chemistry between the lead pair is so important for a love story. Shahid and I had a comfort level which really helped us crack that.”
