Kabir Duhan Singh
Model-turned-actor Kabir Duhan Singh is a very popular name in south Indian cinema, having played antagonist to most A-list heroes in Telugu, Kannada and Tamil cinema, in films like Kick 2, Vedalam, Pailwaan, etc. The actor, whose last Kannada release was in 2019, is a part of the big-ticket pan-Indian Upendra-starrrer Kabzaa and Mehbooba, the remake of the Malayalam film Ishq.
His next in Sandalwood is DTS (Dare To Sleep), which has Chetan and Sunil Varma in the lead. Directed by Abhiram Pilla and being made as a Kannada-Telugu bilingual, the film has Donal Bisht and Natasha as the female leads. The film is TV actress Donal’s big screen debut.
Kabir is the main antagonist in this action flick and wrapped up his portions, which included some high-octane stunt sequences, in Goa recently. According to news reports, Kabir plays a drug kingpin who runs his business in India while remaining abroad. When Chetan leads the charge to destroy Kabir’s empire, the latter comes to India to try and put things back in order. The team apparently shot for a few fight and chase sequences in Goa.
Kabir is also expected to wind up his portions in director R Chandru’s ambitious underworld subject, Kabzaa. His film Mehbooba, in which he plays a cop with a positive spin to the character, is ready for release. One of the highlights of the actor’s career trajectory this year, beside the good projects in Kannada and Telugu, was that he got to be a part of a Turkish-Bangladeshi international film called Netri: The Leader. This film was shot predominantly in Turkey and Dhaka, with Kabir the main antagonist yet again – a terrorist who has a slew of illegal activities going on.
The actor has been quoted as saying that while he has been getting a lot of offers from Kannada films, his schedule in Tollywood will keep him busy for the foreseeable future.
