‘My friendship with Kriti has grown with time’
After ending 2017 on a high note, with his film Fukrey Returns garnering great response, actor Varun Sharma is now shooting for his next, Arjun Patiala, which stars Kriti Sanon and Diljit Dosanjh in lead roles.
While he is enjoying his stint shooting in parts of Punjab, there’s another reason he’s excited to be a part of the film — it’s the third time that Varun has Kriti as a co-star. The two have earlier worked together in Dilwale (2015) and Raabta (2017).
Asked if there’s a better comfort level, Varun says, “Of course, there’s a lot of comfort. We know each other really well [now]. It’s so much fun to be working with her again. With time, you come closer, and our friendship has grown with time. Since both of us hail from North India, we have lots in common to talk about.”
With films such as Heropanti (2014) and Bareilly Ki Barfi (2017), Kriti has had a fairly successful stint in Bollywood. As a co-star, Varun says that he admires a lot of traits in her.
“She’s an amazing actor but the way she gets into skin of the character and nurtures it from her heart, is outstanding. She really works hard towards building the character she’s portraying onscreen in terms of body language, mannerism and characteristics,” says Varun, adding that it’s a treat to watch her perform in front of the camera.
“Once she comes on set and in front of the camera, she is not Kriti but just that character. That’s one thing I really admire about her,” says Varun.
