‘My friend­ship with Kriti has grown with time’

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page - Monika Rawal Kukreja monika.rawal@htlive.com

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.
