Vijay Varma is a busy man. Well known for his intense, committed performances in Amazon Prime Video’s heartland crime show Mirzapur and in Ranveer Singh-led Gully Boy, he has built for himself a considerable fan base in a fairly short time.
In a recent interview with indianexpress.com, Vijay talked about his character in Darlings, and how was it like working with Alia Bhatt as an actor and as a producer, he said, “I was glad that she approached me for this. A very, very twisted dark comedy. It is an incredibly juicy role for an actor. You have to really bring in your A-game because we’re dealing with top-notch performers like Shefali (Shah). Also, Gulzar wrote the lyrics, Vishal Bhardwaj gave music, and we had a passionate director in Jasmeet K Reen. It was a delight to shoot this project. I’m in anticipation and nervous excitement as I wait for the film to come out.”
Darlings, set against the backdrop of a conservative lower-middle-class neighbourhood, revolves around a quirky mother-daughter duo navigating through crazy circumstances as they try to find their place in the world. According to reports, Alia Bhatt-starrer Darlings is headed for an OTT release.
