Shahid and Kareena got close to each other while shooting for their 2004 movie Fida and dated for almost five years. But slowly things turned ugly between them and Kareena's growing closeness to Saif Ali Khan while filming Tashan started worrying Shahid.

Shahid shared his incomplete love story to the media in an interview, saying break-up is a very dangerous phase in life and you feel your heart has broken into pieces.
"You just keep brooding about one individual, and that is your love. At this point in time you do not like your surroundings and people around you as well. You damage yourself unknowingly, and this is shown in Kabir Singh as well. I too got nostalgic while playing this character, it reminded me of my college days. If you like a girl, you feel as though your heart has broken in pieces when she does not talk to you or does not respond. You feel emotional," Shahid Kapoor told Deccan Chronicle in an interview.
Talking about coping with break-ups, Shahid said that "he would sit in a corner and listen to emotional and heartbroken music to escape the depression" and also "took to the shoulders of friends and family members."
