New Delhi: Several reports claiming Bollywood actor Shahid Kapoor has been diagnosed with stage one stomach cancer surfaced on the internet on Saturday. However, the actor's family members have completely rubbished the rumors.
ABP quoted Shahid's family member as saying, "log kuchh bhi kaise likh sakte hain? Aakhir is khabar ka aadhar kya hai? Is tarah ki afwaahein phailaane ko kis tarah se jaayaz tthehraya ja sakta hai?" (How can people write just anything? This news is based on what? Spreading rumors like these is not acceptable)."
On the work front, Shahid was last seen in Batti Gul Meter Chalu opposite Shraddha Kapoor and is now gearing up for the Arjun Reddy remake titled Kabir Singh. The actor keeps treating his fans with pictures from the set of the film.
The film is being helmed by Sandeep Vanga, who also directed the original 2017 Telugu blockbuster.
'Kabir Singh' will hit the screens on June 21, 2019.
Earlier, actress Tara Sutaria who will make her Bollywood debut with 'Student of the Year 2' was to play the lead but she backed out of the project. To replace Tara, Kiara was roped in.
Expressing her happiness over being a part of the film, Kiara had earlier written on Twitter, "#WaitForIt This is NOT a still from the Arjun Reddy remake but our film shoot begins today! wishing the team an amazinggg start!!!
