Varun has worked with Shah Rukh in Dilwale (2015), an action romantic comedy film directed by Rohit Shetty and produced by Gauri Khan. Shahrukh is seen opposite Kajol in the film, while Kriti Sanon is in the lead role with Varun. The film also stars Varun Sharma, Johnny Lever, Boman Irani, Pankaj Tripathi, Mukesh Tiwari, Chetna Pandey and Kabir Bedi. Varun and Anil are seen together for the first time in the recently released film ‘Jug-Jag Jio’.
Speaking with Bollywood Hungama, Varun reacted to a question on the atmosphere on the sets working with Anil and Shah Rukh, “Very different. Very different. He (Anil Kapoor) is so entertaining and so much energy. Shah Rukh so much. Charming, so humble and so everything. He is just amazing. Shahrukh sir is just amazing. Both are amazing. Anil sir is a brilliant actor, but he is different.”
Varun is playing the role of Anil’s son in Jagjag Jio. The Hindustan Times review read, “From the first scene to the climax, the film maintains a pace that engages you in the good and bad times of the Saini family and doesn’t serve up too many dull moments. Anurag Singh’s story And Rishabh Sharma’s dialogues blend effectively to create situations that make you laugh, cry, relate to the characters and all this with lots of naach gaana. Even in the most emotional scene, you swoon with humor. Let’s see the glow that doesn’t feel wrong or coercive, that’s what I liked the most about the film.”
The film, which released on Friday, earned a lot at the box office on Saturday. Film trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared the film’s second day collection and wrote on Twitter, “#JugJuggJeeyo gets a massive 35.24% push on day 2… #Delhi, #NCR, #Gujarat lead, followed by #Mumbai, #Pune, #Chandigarh, #Bengaluru… Improvement in mass circuit, should increase on day 3… Eyes 37 crore [+/-] Weekend total… Fri 9.28 cr, Sat 12.55 cr. gross: 21.83 crore Indian biz.”
